SKF Taconite Seal 558b233e2aa7e

The SKF Taconite Seal for bearings in split block housings protects against extremely contaminated or wet operating conditions.  

  • Multi-stage labyrinth cartridge seal design
  • Benefits include exclusion of contaminants, improved prevention of water ingress (even during high-pressure washing), maximized bearing and seal service life, reduced grease consumption, reduced environmental impact, and optimized machine performance and uptime
  • Provides practical barrier solution for demanding applications 
  • Can be machined cast iron or steel
  • Consists of two rings (one stationary and one rotating) which form a very narrow labyrinth between them
  • Rotating labyrinth ring carries an internal, low-friction V-ring seal that seals against the stationary labyrinth ring, blocks contaminants from entering bearing housing and contributes to effective purging of grease
  • Rotating labyrinth ring, facing the bearing housing, serves to deflect and fling away water
  • Features shorter axial width compared with conventional types to offer space-saving advantages
  • Can be supplied to easily fit bearing housings in a range of shaft sizes from 50 (1-15/16 in.) to 450 mm (18 in.) as standard
  • Circumferential groove on outer diameter surface of stationary labyrinth ring promotes simplified alignment and installation
  • Smaller seal types will firmly secure to a shaft using three grub/set screws, and versions with larger diameters have been engineered for “bolt-on” mounting
  • Built-in grease fittings enable easy re-greasing when necessary
  • Compatible with new or existing housings
  • Custom products can be developed to satisfy particular application requirements
