The reverse lip design is used when both the contaminants and the fluids to be sealed are coming from the same side. This design can provide an effective seal when the outside of the assembly sees water or mud slurry. In this case, fluid from outside the assembly leaking in is the greater design concern. The reverse lip under the garter spring ensures maximum sealing to the outside of the unit while allowing slight oil migration between the seal lips for needed lubrication.
