Wheel-end seal for extreme performance
3rd Quarter 2018, Shaft power components


SKF’s new Scotseal X-Treme wheel-end seal for trucks and trailers offers superior reliability and high temperature performance, as well as a market leading five year or 800 000 km warranty on trucks and seven years on trailers.

Truck and trailer operators can now dramatically reduce the risk of premature wheel-end failures, as well as the high costs associated with unplanned downtime and vehicle recovery.

Scotseal X-Treme offers an extension of the current three year full parts and labour warranty provided by Scotseal Plus XL to a new market-leading five years for truck and seven years for trailer applications for the new product under the SKF Trouble Free Operation coverage plans TFO5 and TFO7 respectively. SKF has been able to offer this generous guarantee thanks to new design features that include optimised primary and axial lip profiles, new metal unitiser geometry and the use of an upgraded HNBR lip material which enhances the performance of SKF’s unique wave lip design. Collectively, these new features deliver unrivalled under-lip temperatures, lower running friction, improved contamination exclusion and longer seal life.

With a wheel-end seal replacement and hub relube taking around two hours, vehicle downtime costs can quickly soar. Thanks to its innovative new seal design, Scotseal X-Treme has the potential to cut unscheduled downtime events by half and can drastically reduce wheel-end failure events due to seal problems. The new seal is also designed to cope with the higher temperatures generated by braking systems that are compliant with new ‘shorter stopping distance’ legislation.
