Advanced seal features temperature-resistant material, multi-labyrinth sealing for long-life applications

STEMCO recently launched the new Discover XR wheel seal.

The advanced wheel seal solution previously only was available as a part of the Trifecta pre-adjusted hub assembly, but now available as a standalone product, the company said.

The Discover XR seal features GlideLock technology that eliminates installation issues by reducing installation force by 50% with no pre-lube required. This helps address key concerns surrounding seal failure, including cocked seals and excessive heat generation.

The seal also offers easy removal without tools while exhibiting strong locking with its patented “SMART” anti-rotation features, STEMCO added. It also is protected by a four-zone labyrinth that provides contamination exclusion, reducing wear and extending the life of the seal.

“At STEMCO, we pride ourselves as being the ultimate industry partner when it comes to wheel ends, and this Discover XR seal continues that vision,” said Chip Stuhr, vice president and general manager of STEMCO. “It meets the demands and challenges of the commercial trucking industry, extending the life of vehicles and components, and ultimately making the roadways safer.”

STEMCO encourages prospective customers to install the Discover XR seal with its other wheel end components to take advantage of a special warranty through the Platinum Performance System, which combines the Discover XR or Guardian HP seal, the Pro-Torq or Zip-Torq nut, and the Sentinel hub cap for a three-year warranty.
