Superior Industries Inc., Morris, Minnesota, exhibited its Titanium™ Seal idler bearing seal at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. Several years ago, Superior’s engineers started a project to improve the manufacturer’s standard idler seal. Today, the standard idler seal is new and improved, but a premium seal design was also discovered along the way. It’s achieving supreme performance in some of the grittiest, wettest, most troublesome idler applications, according to the manufacturer.
“Design analysis for dozens of iterations were performed in our lab and some of those drafts graduated to real world settings within various quarries and pits,” said Mary Erholtz, Superior’s vice president of marketing and conveying product manager. The configuration of the Titanium Idler Bearing Seal, specially designed to reduce the penetration of fugitive moisture and fines, is patented.
