Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries will introduce a group of application-specific idlers seals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. They’re one of a dozen new products the company will introduce in booth C31389.

“These next-generation SpinGuard Idler Seals will offer greater protection in applications known to expose bearings to fugitive material prematurely,” says Paul Schmidgall, chief engineer of Superior’s conveyor components division. “We tested dozens of seal iterations over more than five years of and we think we have some pretty robust options.”

Superior says it now offers four application-specific conveyor idler seals:

  • SpinGuard Wet Seal: Applications experiencing unsatisfactory idler life due to high moisture. Common conditions include wet processing, frequent washdowns and dredging.
  • SpinGuard Dry Seal: Operations that produce dust near crushing or screening equipment.
  • SpinGuard Low Drag Seal: For conveyor owners concerned about horsepower. Eco-friendly idlers designed with low drag seal for overland or long distance conveying.
  • SpinGuard Titanium Seal: For the most extreme conditions including wet and slurry applications.

Each class of seal will be easily recognized by a unique colour: Wet Seals are blue, Dry are ivory, Low Drag are green and the Titanium Seal is silver. Superior says lead times for these application-specific idler seals can be equal to their day-to-day, industry-leading production response times.
