SKF is a leading global supplier of bearing and elastomeric products, solutions and related services, as well as linear motion and lubrication technologies.

The new lightweight Dana Spicer LMS Hubcap combines a multiple-labyrinth design and high-strength polymer material to provide improved venting performance and strength thus preventing wheel-end contamination, according to SKF. The weight-optimized, hybrid-design efficiently vents the wheel-end without utilizing a continuously open port or filter membrane that could become clogged, thus requiring additional maintenance. The hubcap design also includes a magnetized side-fill plug that captures metallic particles to provide additional protection to the wheel-end bearings and seals, as well as reduce product life-cycle costs.
