Axial excluder HRC seals

Extends service life by protecting main shaft bearings from contaminants

HRC1 seal
The axial excluder seal HRC is designed to offer a high-performing alternative to rubber excluder seals. Compared to rubber seals, the HRC seal minimizes wear out caused by the abrasive counterfaces and poorly lubricated conditions, which are often encountered in main shaft applications . The HRC seal is made of a special H-ECOPUR, an SKF-developed polyurethane material with excellent abrasion resistance and tear strength (Fig. 2). The engineered design helps keeping the sealing lip lubricated, while minimizing friction and wear. Together, seal design and material result in significantly extended seal service life, meeting standard maintenance inspection schedules.

Available in solid and split executions, this seal also features a steel band clamp with a fast-lock mechanism for easy installations.

Benefits of HRC axial excluder seals:
  • Extended service life
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Reduced contaminant-related bearing failures
  • Increased asset reliability
  • On-site retrofit
