New SKF reinforced all-rubber HSS radial shaft seals introduce improved solutions for reliable protection against contaminant and extended service life for large-size bearings in wind turbine drivetrains. These high performance seals are designed for easy installation or uptower replacement during planned maintenance procedures. For new designs their minimal space requirements allow for smaller and lighter bearing housings, potentially reducing turbine weight.
These seals feature a well-proven, spring-loaded sealing lip design with a defined radial load for reliable sealing performance. Available in solid and split versions, the seals can be equipped with an optional SKF Springover specially engineered to keep the spring in correct position.
