Dana Inc. has added new SPL 140SFX service-free u-joints for medium-duty applications to its Spicer Life series portfolio.

“No relubrication of the u-joints means lower overall costs and more time on the road for fleets,” said Bill Nunnery, Dana senior director of sales and marketing for the global aftermarket.

The new Spicer SPL140SFX eliminates the zerk hole lube drill and tap, and includes a tube of Spicer ultra-premium synthetic grease that is compatible with all NLGI-2 (a measurement of relative hardness) greases and professional-grade quality, even at high temperatures, according to the Maumee, Ohio-based company. Once the grease is applied, the SPL140SFX is lubricated for the life of the u-joint, resulting in less maintenance, reduced downtime and lower overall operational costs over time.

Dana operates a global network of 14 parts distribution centers — Transport Topics
