New Generation of Mudblock Seals for off-Highway Applications

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/5/2015, Location: Europe

At the Hannover fair, SKF will showcase a new generation of SKF Mudblock cassette seals for oil-lubricated wheel-end applications that will significantly extend seal service life compared with equivalent products in the market. The solution can reduce seal friction by up to 20%, offering off-highway customers a solution that reduces energy loss and thus increases efficiency.

The seal features a multilip cassette seal design incorporating optimized lip geometry, stainless steel counter surface and a specially formulated nitrile compound to reduce wear and aging. The combination provides a best in class sealing solution which increases bearing life by preventing the ingress of contaminants and retaining the lubricant inside the bearing, thus also minimizing environmental impact due to oil leakage.

“The main customer need that this solution addresses is increased reliability – something all off-highway OEMs strive for, as customers may gain up to 50% longer seal operating life.,” explains SKF Global Product Manager Vinay Joyappa ” With SKF Mudblock cassette seals, SKF offers value to both OEMs and end-users, thereby helping the customers to improve the asset life cycle.

The solution reduces warranty claims, increases productivity and reduces the owning and operating costs. The SKF Mudblock cassette seal comes in a wide range of sizes from 25 mm to 250 mm shaft diameter and is interchangeable with other cassette seals.

The new Mudblock cassette seal is one of many innovations SKF will showcase at this year’s Hannover fair (April 13th – 17th).
