SKF recently announced the availability of SKF Unitized pinion seals for heavy duty applications. The SKF Unitized pinion seal reduces temperature at the sealing lip, promotes error-free installation and extends service life. The SKF Unitized pinion seal features a fluorelastomer sealing lip suited to handle high operating temperatures of the pinion application. Its patented Waveseal design sweeps oil back towards the bearing, allowing the seal to run cooler. The seal consists of a half metal ID, which allows heat to dissipate, and a half rubber ID, which maintains positive grip on the yoke surface and prevents leak path. The sealant across the Bore-Tite OD serves as a protective coating, also eliminating leak paths.
