What are driveline seals?
Driveline seals are essential components for the efficient functionality of vehicles, contributing towards mobility, durability and the length of time a vehicle can operate for. They are used across multiple industries, which covers military, agriculture and road vehicles, providing a safer and more productive operation.
Yet there are many challenges to contend with and driveline seals are exposed to everyday wear and tear, leakage and outside damage. It’s vital that driveline seals are designed to a high standard so these challenges are overcome and that’s where FTL can help.
What driveline sealing solutions do we specialise in?
Through decades of innovation, we’ve developed the following bespoke driveline sealing solutions to name a few:
Central Tire Inflation Sealing
Central tire Inflation (CTI) is a leading technology for enhancing the mobility of wheeled vehicles and works by ensuring vehicles achieve the optimum tire pressure for all ground conditions. CTI seals facilitate transfer of air between static and rotating parts within the axle and wheel hub and are critical for a safe driving experience and maintaining mobility.Read More
Suspension seals encompass a range of rotary, mechanical face and high pressure reciprocating seals that are vital parts of a vehicle’s suspension system. They are critical elements in mobility and are of particular importance to vehicles that need to navigate tough terrain.Read More
Wheel Hub Input Shaft Seals
Input shaft seals are the primary dynamic sealing interface for wheel hubs. This component is responsible for the prevention of contamination ingress into the wheel hub, improving safety and operational reliability.Read More
Cartridge seals are an innovative development by FTL. This has been achieved by listening to our customers and their needs within the differing sectors; ease of installation, fewer components, and reduced space claim have been key drivers for our product innovation.Read More
