Seals for heavy industrial applications
Heavy industries like metal, construction, wind energy, forestry, mining and pulp and paper provide a challenging environment for radial shaft seals. Operating within a wide range of speeds, temperatures and environmental conditions, these seals need to reliably retain lubricants while preventing harsh contaminants from entering the system.
SKF seals for heavy industrial applications are available in a wide assortment of designs and materials to meet the varying demands of each challenging application. The assortment includes heavy-duty metal-cased seals, rubber outside diameter seals with metal inserts or fabric-reinforcement and all-rubber seals. For simplified seal selection, the table and the Seal selection table can be used for general guidance.
