Superior Industries said it will introduce a group of application-specific idlers seals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. They’re one of a dozen new products the company will introduce. “These next-generation SpinGuard Idler Seals will offer greater protection in applications known to expose bearings to fugitive material prematurely,” said Paul Schmidgall, chief engineer of Superior’s conveyor components division. “We tested dozens of seal iterations over more than five years and we think we have some pretty robust options.”
Superior offers four application-
specific conveyor idler seals: SpinGuard Wet Seal; SpinGuard Dry Seal (dusty applications); SpinGuard Low Drag Seal (for overland or long distance conveying); and SpinGuard Titanium Seal (for the most extreme conditions including wet and slurry applications). Each class of seal will be easily recognized by a unique color: Wet Seals are blue, Dry are ivory, Low Drag are green and the Titanium Seal is silver.
