Tough seals meet face-to-face

Sixty years of design experience has led to the development of a range of metal-faced seals from Pioneer Weston for rotary mechanical applications.

The addition of special O-ring elastomeric materials and design technology from parent company ERIKS has enabled designers to develop a full range of seals for tough rotary applications that is claimed to offer quality, precision and reliability at competitive prices.

Designed to be used both as a replacement item and as an OE fitment part the new range suits applications such as wheel hubs and axles on off-road vehicles, tracked vehicles, quarrying and mining machinery and heavy duty waste processing equipment. Lee Murray, Technical Manager at Pioneer Weston commented: "Our move into supplying metal-faced seals is a case of satisfying a niche market with the best available technology. The addition of a range of custom developed elastomer seals allows us to tailor each seal combination to the exact specification for each application, be it a frequently used tracked vehicle on a farm or construction site, or a vibratory screen in a quarry environment.
