This article introduces a new type of magnetic sealing mechanism that reduces the lubrication oil pollution and media gaseous leakage in general reciprocating machinery including air compressors and refrigerators. The feasible function and reliable performance of this new sealing mechanism are introduced and analyzed in this paper. The computer aided design, modeling and analysis are being used to study this new sealing mechanism, and the prototype of this sealing mechanism is being tested. The study indicated the proper function of this sealing mechanism. The major advantages of this sealing mechanism include: improved sealing capacity to prevent the gaseous leakage and oil leakage, simple and compact in structure, lower precision requirement on surfaces of reciprocating pistons and shafts in production and manufacturing, and longer services in sealing life span. Also there is almost no frictional loss during the reciprocating motion of piston or shaft.
