Shafts can become damaged by contaminants or excessive wear under the seal lip. The use of Parker shaft sleeves can prevent damage or provide an alternative to expensive repairs.
The Parker Quick Sleeve is an ultra-thin, chrome-plated stainless steel sleeve for shafts up to 7 inches (178 mm) in diameter. The low profile of the Quick Sleeve eliminates the need for a change in seal size. It has a removable flange to accommodate a variety of seal configurations and comes with an installation tool. The Parker wear sleeve is a metal ring which is press fit on the shaft to provide a uniform sealing surface. It is most often constructed of carbon steel with a special phosphate coating in a flanged or nonflanged design. Replacement seal ID must be sized to match the installed wear sleeve OD.
