Wheel Hub Input Shaft Seal
During vehicle operation, wheel hubs are exposed to the full force of road conditions. Wheel hub input shaft seals are the primary dynamic sealing interface for wheel hubs, and are responsible for preventing environmental contamination ingress into the wheel hub.
Wheel hub input shaft seals are used to prevent environmental ingress of water, dust and debris into the wheel hub, ensuring safer, more reliable operations.
Off-highway applications, such as agriculture and military, are even more challenging. Prolonged exposure to abrasive dirt, sand and mud are commonplace, and where river fording or amphibious capabilities are required, these seals need to perform under full submergence in silt-laden water.
Wheel hub rotational speeds can also exceed 1,500 RPM, so material durability is a core concern for operators.
