Filton was founded by Mr. William Murray, originally to manufacture conventional leather oil seals for rotary shafts.
Since 1942 Filton has been involved in the design, development, and manufacture of a wide range of precision-made products for industries worldwide.
Filton is a world leader in the production of Standard and Special Rotary Seals. Through our use of state of the art designs and sophisticated seal face materials, we regularly undertake and solve a multitude of complex sealing problems.
Multiport Rotary Unions and Swivel Joints are now commonplace, and if a suitable design is not already available Filton's Expert Design Team will liaise with the customer and come up with a solution.
Quality is Paramount and Filton's strict quality assurance procedures include 100% pressure testing of self-contained rotary seals before releasing to the customer. All tests are recorded and can be traced to each unit's unique serial number.
Filton is approved to the Quality Management System Standard ISO 9001:2015
