SKF conducts tests in climatic cells of the SKF Mudblock seals at global testing facilities in USA, Europe and Asia. The tests include both our own tests and tests according to customer specifications.
SKF Mudblock seals are engineered using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to obtain optimum design solutions. FEA evaluates:
  • stress/strain behavior of the sealing lip in deformed condition
  • lip contact forces
  • lip opening pressure
  • displacement of the lips
  • assembly simulation of seal and sleeve
