The SKF CR Seals Speedi-Sleeve® - The Easy Way to Repair Shafts

Once a particle is trapped underneath a shaft sealing lip, it’s only a matter of time before the resulting shaft wear renders the seal ineffective. Repairs used to mean the costly, time-consuming proposition of shaft dismounting and re-machining. But SKF SPEEDI-SLEEVE® can take a shaft from scored to restored in just minutes – or eliminate the need to finish it in the first place.

The SPEEDI-SLEEVE® has been developed by CR precisely to solve the problem of worn seal counterfaces at shaft ends. With thin walls and a near-perfect finish and hardness for its purpose, which is simply pushed in position over the worn shaft and after installing a new seal, the shaft is as good as new - if not better.


Eliminating the need to disassemble the shaft and match with a replacement, the thin-walled sleeve can be pushed in position over the worn area, providing a counterface surface that is optimized for radial shaft seals.
