SKF USA (Lansdale, PA) offers a new generation of the SKF Speedi-Sleeve. According to the company, it isdesigned to provide a cost-effective sealing solution for worn or damaged shafts on rotating equipment. It is also designed to provide a sealing surface without requiring shaft disassembly or specifying a new size of replacement seal. Imperceptible lubricant pockets enable lubricant to reside on the sleeve to prevent dry-running of the sealing lip that could otherwise result in excessive wear. For highly abrasive applications, Speedi-Sleeve is also offered in Gold versions.
