Radial shaft seals.
The new generation SKF SPEEDI-SLEEVE and SKF radial shaft seals
offer an enhanced sealing system performance with improved reliability
and extended maintenance intervals, while enabling users to restore
malfunctioning sealing systems without having to disassemble machines or
regrind shafts. The SPEED1-SLEEVE finds use in mining and
mineral-processing equipment including crushers, conveyors, fans and
pumps, as well as in off-highway construction and agricultural vehicles.
The sleeve can be simply slipped into position over worn shaft areas,
providing an effective sealing surface with no labor-intensive
disassembly or machining required. In tests conducted by SKF, the new
SPEEDISLEEVE demonstrated 50 percent greater resistance to abrasive
media than the previous version. Standard sizes for the sleeve cover
shaft diameters ranging from 0.47 to 8 in. (11.99 to 203.33 mm).
SPEEDISLEEVE is also available as SKF SPEEDI-SLEEVE Gold made for highly
abrasive environments and for applications with seals made of filled
PTFE. SKF USA, www.skf.com
