Dana has enhanced its Spicer Life Series (SPL) Model 250 universal joint assembly to provide improved product performance and durability. Designed to meet the needs of new low-emission, high-efficiency Class 8 trucks, the SPL-250 offers more than a 40% percent improvement in dynamic bearing capacity to create a driveline with 70% more power density compared with it nearest competitor, the company says. The assembly utilizes a new bearing package that includes larger needle bearings for increased capacity, a special Viton synthetic seal for improved grease retention and serviceability, and a thermoplastic seal guard to exclude contaminants. A new premium synthetic lubricant provides further improvement in bearing life through the initial 3-year/350,000-mile lubrication interval. The assembly is also offered with the Spicer Quick Disconnect feature, making it easier to service the powertrain.

Spicer Diamond Series Driveshafts

Product From Dana Corporation

Dana's Spicer Diamond Series Driveshafts increase payload by pairing industry-proven SPL universal-joint technology with an aluminum tube. Under real-world test conditions of more than a year and 750,000 miles later, no issues with the driveshafts were reported, including no balance problems, maintenance concerns or other complaints. The driveshaft combines dissimilar metals, successfully pairing steel end fittings with a single-piece, high-strength aluminum tube, eliminating the need for a center bearing used in traditional two-piece driveshafts, reducing component wear and installation costs. As a result, this technology weighs up to 40 percent less, improving fuel economy and load-carrying capacity.

Drivetrain Protection

Product From Sonnax Industries, Inc.

Sonnax Industries' Power Train Savers are drivetrain protection devices that offer dependable protection against over-torque damage. Once installed in a driveshaft, the drivetrain is protected from over-torque damage caused by any number of factors that can ruin differentials, gears, axles and driveshafts. Power Train Savers feature patented Torque Fuses that shear if harmful over-torque occurs. Each set of Torque Fuses are engineered and calibrated to shear just prior to the powertrain breaking point. Once this occurs, the driveshaft remains in place - supported by an internal system. Collateral damage caused by a broken driveshaft is avoided, along with costly repairs to drivetrain components. To fix the drivetrain, simply replace the Torque Fuses and the vehicle is back in operation.
