SKF Speedi-Sleeve Gold (fig 1) is an enhanced version of standard SKF Speedi-Sleeve, offering improved resistance to abrasive wear. Designed for applications where extended sealing system life is needed, SKF Speedi-Sleeve Gold bridges the performance gap between the standard sleeve and expensive custom shaft treatments. A thin, metallic coating applied to the base stainless steel imparts a gold colour and significantly increases durability. SKF Speedi-Sleeve Gold is particularly effective in environments where there are abrasive contaminants, especially when combined with a seal manufactured from the SKF fluoro rubber material, SKF Duralife.
The installation procedure is identical to that of standard SKF Speedi-Sleeve and the original seal size can still be used.
