For many industrial countries, commercial truck fleets are the lifeblood of the nation, operating nonstop to supply the essentials of today’s sophisticated economies. With the increasing need to work 24/7 throughout the year comes the requirement of trouble-free operation of these trucks between scheduled service routines.
SKF is making its contribution to improved reliability and long service life with Scotseal X-Treme (figs. 1 and 2), which represents a step change in technology compared with other truck and trailer wheel-end seals. The new seal is the latest addition to SKF’s well-established line of wheel-end seals (fig. 3) for drive, steer and trailer axles that include Scotseal PRO, Scotseal Classic, Scotseal Hybrid and Scotseal Plus XL.
