New seal and seal covers from Manutec

Supplier News

Manutec  has completed testing on new quad lip seal and seal covers for its 15 inch and 18 inch Integral Press Wheels.

The new seal covers are made of lightweight but very strong black nylon and can be fitted to existing press wheels in around five minutes.

The new seals have an additional internal lip to provide extra protection against the ingress of fine dust particles during long periods of dry seeding.

The new seal and seal covers aim to improve the performance of bearings in dusty seeding conditions. The new seal covers will also provide a layer of protection against wire and twine, allowing operators a greater period of time to detect any damage prior to the bearings being left exposed to contamination by dust.

Manutec point out that it is still very important when using these new products not to over-grease the hubs.
