Consolidated Metco Selects STEMCO Endeavor Seal for Trailer Applications

STEMCO, an EnPro Industries company, is pleased to announce that Consolidated Metco (ConMet) has selected STEMCO’s Endeavor(TM) seal for use in ConMet PreSet® hubs for trailer applications.  Effective immediately, ConMet PreSet Wheel Hub Assemblies for popular TN and TP trailer applications will come standard with the STEMCO Endeavor high performance seal.

STEMCO’s newly released Endeavor hub seal is designed for use in the ConMet PreSet hubs in order to meet the needs of today’s fleet operators.  Endeavor is a hub installed unitized seal that combines a high temperature sealing element with a 4-zone labyrinth active contamination exclusion system.  This provides superior seal performance and long life, along with the added benefits of PreSet hubs.

STEMCO will supply Endeavor seals to ConMet for their trailer PreSet hubs.  ConMet has also approved STEMCO premium components, such as Sentinel® hub caps and Pro-Torq® axle spindle nuts as additional options for fleets seeking the ultimate in performance.
