Special seals

In addition to the standard seal assortment, SNL housings in the 30, 31 and 32 series are also available with seals for large axial movements. Custom seals for special applications are also available on request.

Seals for large axial movements

Large SNL housings are available with seals that can accommodate large axial movements, a typical requirement of drying cylinders and felt rolls in paper machines. The double labyrinth seals are designed for circulating oil lubrication systems. The seals are fitted in a modified housing, designation suffix TURP, and are always supplied together with the housing.
SNL … TURP housings are suitable for spherical roller and CARB toroidal roller bearings in the 30 and 31 dimension series from size 3036 to 30/530 and 3134 to 3196.

Custom seals

SNL housings in the 30, 31 and 32 series can be equipped with any type of seal that fits the seal groove dimensions in the housing. The relevant dimensions are provided in Table 1 and Table 2.
If custom seals are to be used, SKF recommends ordering housings in the SNL .. G series. Housings in the SNL .. G series have larger bores at the front and back of the housing and can accommodate a wider choice of seal designs.
