Commercial Vehicle Seals

Timken grease and oil seals close spaces between stationary and moving components in mechanical equipment, helping prevent lubricant escape. They also stop harmful contaminants from entering critical systems within the vehicle causing premature wear. Oil and grease seals supplied by Timken feature precision sealing designs and are available in a wide range of sizes to fit many commercial vehicle original equipment or aftermarket applications. Our commercial vehicle seals meet or exceed the performance of major industry competitors.

Design Attributes:

Standard Wheel End Seals

  • Rugged Durability: Oversized double-walled metal outer diameter helps prevent
  • the seal from spinning or walking out of the hub bore (includes black bore sealant). Heavy-duty construction enables effective heat transfer away from the sealing lip.
  • Extended Seal Life: Corrosion-proof spacers feature multiple vent holes,
  • enabling the free flow of lubricant to the sealing lip to help extend service life.
  • Innovative Protection: Unique contamination exclusion system utilizing three
  • nitrile (NBR) lip contact barrier points help prevent seal lip damage and provides
  • protection across a broad temperature range (-20º F to 225º F [-29º C to 107º C]).
  • Impressive Sealing: Wide shoulder coverage provides protection on worn or
  • damaged axle shoulders.
  • Simplified Installation: Steer, drive and trailer axle seals are available with tools designed to simplify accurate installations (Timken commercial grade tools or the Timken Insta-Tool®).

Leather Wheel End Seals

  • Rugged Durability: Oversized double-walled metal outer diameter helps prevent the seal from spinning or walking out of the hub bore (includes black bore sealant). Heavy-duty construction enables effective heat transfer away from the sealing lip.
  • Impressive Adaptability: Severe service sleeve provides a new running surface for worn or damaged axle spindles and protects the spindle from damage during hub removal. Standard service sleeves also are available.
  • Innovative Protection: Lay down polymer-impregnated leather lip absorbs grit and provides protection across a broad temperature range (-65º F to 170º F [-55º C to 77º C]). Outperforms nitrile seals in cold, contaminated environments and are compatible with all natural and synthetic oils and greases.
  • Simplified Installation: Steer, drive and trailer axle seals are available with tools designed to simplify accurate installations (Timken commercial grade tools or the Timken Insta-Tool®).

Premium Wheel End Seals

  • Simplified Installation: Installable with any flat tool including your hand, the ribbed rubber OD with piloted installation guide promotes accurate and square installation to reduce cocked seals.
  • Extended Seal Life: Advanced material compositions (HNBR: Hydrogenerated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) on all sealing lip and outer diameter surfaces promote longer seal life across a broad temperature range (-40º F to 310º F [-40º C to 150º C]), including hot starts and braking.
  • Advanced Protection: Three contaminant exclusion barriers help prevent dirt and other debris from causing premature seal failure.
  • Impressive Sealing: Wide shoulder coverage provides protection on worn or damaged axle shoulders.
