Curt Arakawa of Daiwa Corp. talks about their MagSeal technology used on their line of salt and fresh water spinning reels.
Magnetic oil is one of a new generation of Nano Fluids that can change density and shape when a magnetic field is applied. It creates an excellent, low-friction seal for a rotating shaft. To produce a low-friction seal that keeps water, dust and grit from entering the reel’s rotor bearing and gearing, magnetic oil is controlled by a magnetic field. The result is a water-tight seal with much lower friction than rubber type seals.
