Abstract

Disclosed is a magnetic bearing seal for use in a variety of devices which are in contact with magnetic particulate materials, for example, magnetic toners and carriers used in electrophotography. Magnetic toners and carriers tend to be very abrasive on bearings of, for example, mixers, blenders or developer housings, which shortens the operational life expectancies of the bearings.
