Stemco will now offer its Discover XR wheel seal, previously only available as a part of the Trifecta pre-adjusted hub assembly, as a standalone product.
The Discover XR seal features GlideLock technology that reduces installation force by 50% with no prelube required. This helps address key concerns surrounding seal failure, including cocked seals and excessive heat generation, Stemco officials said in a press release.
The company says the seal also offers easy removal without tools while exhibiting strong locking with its patented anti-rotation features. It is also protected by a four-zone labyrinth that provides contamination exclusion, reducing wear and extending the life of the seal.
Fleets are encouraged to install the Discover XR seal with Stemco’s other premium wheel end components to take advantage of a special warranty through the Platinum Performance System. This system 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.
