Hub Alert heat sensing label

Product From Spectra Products Inc.

The Spectra Products Hub Alert heat sensing label is an inexpensive product alerting maintenance staff to overheating wheel-ends. The Hub Alert label has a hermetically sealed heat sensor that turns black at 250 degrees F, indicating the need for a detailed inspection of the wheel end. The high-tech label adhesive keeps Hub Alert on plastic, aluminum and steel surfaces in extreme cold and hot temperatures and resists high-pressure water spraying. Hub Alert is preventative medicine for overheating brakes, bearings and related issues. Hub Alert provides an alert to the second most common cause of wheel separation, bearing failure.

TF Hubcaps

Product From SKF

For well over a decade, SKF TF Hubcaps have helped fleets log literally billions of trouble-free miles. Engineered of DuPont Zytel, SKF TF Hubcaps are lighter than steel and stronger than aluminum. A cloud-free window is fusion-bonded to the hubcap body during the manufacturing process, eliminating screws to shake loose and potential leak paths. Additionally, a solid aluminum ring is embedded into the hubcap's base, helping to distribute an even, leak-proof load against the hub. Each hubcap includes plated, pre-assembled retention bolts (at no additional cost), designed to protect against leaks at the bolt holes.

Doctor Preload bearing adjustment tools

Product From Temper Axle Products Corporation

Temper Axle Products Doctor Preload bearing adjustment tools allow technicians to quickly and accurately set wheel bearings to measured industry standards for light preload settings to dramatically increase tire life and eliminate uneven wear at all tire positions. Preload eliminates axial movement of wheel seals and therefore reduces premature seal leaks and failures. Fleets are converting every wheel end to preload adjustment with Doctor Preload and dramatically reducing tire expenditures, according to the company. Temper offer significant improvements in cost and performance that were lost with bearings set to endplay. Made in U.S.A.

Scotseal PlusXL

Product From SKF

SKF's Scotseal PlusXL contains four internal sealing lips designed to keep road contaminants out and bearings lubricated. The seal’s inside diameter provides wider contact with the shaft than ordinary wheel seals, virtually eliminating misalignment or cocking during installation. What’s more, the Scotseal PlusXL offers broad compatibility with all popular synthetic fluid lubricants. Manufactured of Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR), the Scotseal PlusXL is engineered to withstand excessive heat (up to 300 degrees F) from frequent braking and the extreme cold conditions. The PlusXL also incorporates a patented Waveseal design that continually sweeps oil back to the bearings.

Early Warning System

Product From Spectra Products Inc.

Spectra Products’ Hub Alert is a heat sensing label that functions as an early warning system to alert drivers and maintenance personnel to above normal wheel end operating temperature. This normal operating temperature of wheel hub oil or grease should not exceed 225ºF. Wheel end manufacturers recommend a detailed inspection if temperatures reach 250ºF to address potential seal and bearing problems. The Hub Alert will turn black permanently when the temperature reaches 250ºF, alerting that further inspection is required. After inspection, a new Hub Alert label is applied to the wheel hub to continue the early warning temperature alert. The Hub Alert thermosensitive area is hermetically sealed against moisture, oil, grease, fuels, water and steam.

Controlled Wheel Bearing Pre-Load

Product From Rather Engineering

Rather Engineering’s Controlled Position Axle Nut (CPAN) system is an installation procedure designed to reduce the operational expense caused by excessive tightening of axle nuts. Over tightening may cause a significant increase of annual fuel cost because of the drag that increases proportionately with applied preload on the wheel bearings. The CPAN system is a jam nut system capable of installing a safe range of controlled preload. It is the only axle nut system manufactured for commercial trailer operations that will virtually eliminate end play within the wheel assembly that contributes to diminished service life of oil seals. By reducing inward or outward movement of the hub assembly on the axle spindle, oil leaks are less likely to occur.
