This all-new CR Seals handbook from SKF combines our best ideas and insights from the past and the present. We hope it becomes your first and last source for information on radial shaft seals.
The most obvious change in the handbook starts with its title. The “CR Seals handbook” references CR – Chicago Rawhide – throughout to describe the SKF industrial shaft seal offering.
Founded in 1878 as Chicago Rawhide, CR Seals has one of the longest histories in the seal industry. For the last 100+ years, CR Seals has been setting erformance and service life standards for industrial and automotive shaft seals.
CR Seals has also been part of SKF since 1990, a span during which we’ve developed new materials, manufacturing processes and designs to create some of the most robust seals on the market.
This CR Seals handbook includes a range of practical knowledge and insights about everything from seal installation, storage and handling to complex seal application engineering and troubleshooting concepts.
Along with seal selection guides and full product listings by shaft size, this handbook also highlights key CR Seals types and technologies, including SKF Wave, SKF Edge and SKF Flex seals.
Ultimately, seals are a core SKF technology, as they contribute to our vision of a world of reliable rotation and help us differentiate our position as the undisputed leader of the bearing industry.
