July 11, 2013 – SKF says its new Large Diameter Seals can be delivered in a wide range of styles, configurations, and materials to accommodate demanding speeds, temperatures, pressures and environmental conditions. Promising to withstand the severe operating challenges typically encountered in steel, pulp and paper and mining industries, the designs of SKF Large Diameter Seals include metal-cased outside diameters, rubber-cased outside diameters, and all-rubber types both in spilt and solid styles. The company claims it can supply the best sealing profile based on the application requirements, including integrated spring combinations to provide optimal interference for long life and compensate for severe operating conditions, springless profiles to aggressively pump away contaminants, integrated PTFE-excluding elements for dusty and abrasive particle exclusion, and V-ring seal styles for mounting directly on the shaft and creating additional barriers against external contamination.
