CTI-Enabled Hub Assemblies for Wheeled Vehicles: Challenges and Solutions
In military, agricultural and commercial driveline applications, vehicle reliability and the long-term effectiveness of performance are paramount. Wheel hub assemblies are one of the more essential driveline components to be sealed optimally in order to deliver this reliability and longevity of performance.
Wheel hub assemblies can incorporate CTI seals, input shaft seals, labyrinth seals, cassette seals and O-rings. All these dynamic and static elements have to be robust enough to handle a series of sealing challenges, with a wide range of materials and profiles to be considered. Making the right choice for the right vehicle in the right operating environment isn’t always a simple specification.
