New e-Barrier Wheel Seal Defies Incorrect Installation
Seal That Can Be Installed Using ANY Tool
(Dry Branch, GA, IL): The forth generation of heavy duty truck and trailer wheel seals has been introduced by CHAMP Seals. The new e-Barrier Wheel Seal, developed with installation simplicity in mind, can be installed by hand, other manufacturer's tools or any other tool that can fit the seal into the hub.
One of the primary reasons for premature wheel seal failures is incorrect installation of the seal. The e-Barrier features 150% thicker steel than competitive seal manufacturers, ensuring that the seal can stand up to real world abuse. In addition, it has a unique 'safety zone' feature, which allows for some distortion of the seal front face without affecting the seal performance.
Additional major benefits of the e-Barrier Seal include:
1. A unique low friction bumper which ensures low seal friction from the outset. Less friction translates to a decrease in required torque and lower temperatures.
2. A multi-zone labyrinth design in the e-Barrier seal provides the most effective protection against dirt, grit, water and ice. The combination of low profile sections, right angle corners, low friction barrier, two rubber wipers and a specifically formulate water proof grease to both lubricate and keep water out, ensures that this seal will perform without any 'run-in' period.
The advanced technology used to manufacture the e-Barrier Seal allows cost savings of as much as 20% over other major manufacturers' seals... and there is no tool investment required. The seven sizes currently available cover 80% of all seal usage.
