SKF Mudblock and SKF Trackstar are the only two varieties of seals specifically manufactured for the construction industry. It is increasingly used in wheel end applications and front and rear axles where the requirements are to provide increased life under harsh conditions and to ensure the exclusion of external contamination as it integrates both seal and counter face with an integrated sleeve for the sealing lip thereby reducing the need for costly shaft machining.

For the OEMs, the Hydraulic Drive Lubricator delivers the benefits of automated lubrication to end users in a cost effective way that is simple to integrate into new and current machine designs. The lubricator is mounted directly onto the tool and connected to the machine’s existing hydraulic system and has been equipped with a standard thread cartridge that is very easy and convenient for operators to replace. Its technical highlights lies in its patented, sophisticated drive system as it has greater capability to withstand dirt, dust, hard jolts and vibrations. In addition, the lubricator can be used to more than just hydraulic hammers including the attachments and additional tools for construction machinery, like demolition grapples and screening buckets do not have their own power supply and are hydraulically driven and have points requiring lubrication, he concluded.
Mechanical face seals are specialized seals that protect shafts and components of equipment against the external environment, and also prevent oil leakage. Mechanized loT, intelligent remote-control systems, and automation of heavy off-highway
