Rolling resistance is a significant factor in the power losses of vehicles. Seals used in bearings can be a significant contributor due to the friction generated.
SKF has addressed this issue with new designs and bearing seals materials which provide reduced friction and longer service life, keeping lubricants in and contaminants out.
SKF can provide sealing solutions for several types of bearing applications including:
- Light vehicle (car and light truck) hub units
- Truck hub units
- Deep groove ball bearing
- Water pump bearings
