Engine seal provides CO2 savings

Published: 2 April 2013 - Rachael Morling

SKF’s Low Friction Engine Seal is said to reduce friction by up to 55%, providing CO2 savings of over 1g per kilometer. Based on an annual mileage of 14,500km, this equates to a reduction of 14.5kg/ CO2 per year – so if one million cars were equipped with the solution the reduction would be 14,500 tonnes of CO2 per year, claims the company.

 The seal has a low friction elastomer lip design which is based on the wafer technology used for PTFE shaft seals; and is made from a specially formulated FKM material that is engineered with improved compression set and relaxation properties resulting in improved performance.

The seal is part of SKF’s BeyondZero Portfolio.
