Sep 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Dana Corp's Commercial Vehicle Systems Division has a new family of single-speed, single-drive axles.
The new Dana Spicer S23-190, S26-190, and S30-190 (S190 Series) axles begin production in November 2003 and are offered in either a straight truck or tractor-trailer configuration.
Dana has designed the axles to perform well with vehicles outfitted with future drivetrain ratings of up to 2,450 ft-lb of torque, and up to 700 horsepower.
The S190 Series has a wide face width with 470-mm (18.5") primary hypoid gearing. A range of ratios — 2.69 to 7.83 — is available with the S23-190 model to allow for flexibility in spec'ing options. The S26-190 and S30-190 models offer a ratio range of 3.42 to 7.83.
Optional upgrades for the Dana Spicer S190 Series include:
- Driver-controlled, full locking-wheel differential
- Dana Spicer LMS hub systems
- Dana Spicer Unitized Hub Systems (UHS)
- Axle-mounted electromagnetic retarder
- Spicer Life SPL or Series-10 yokes
- Wide-track axles
All S190 Series axles qualify for the 250,000-mile initial lube drain interval when used in linehaul service and specified with a Dana-approved factory-filled extended-life lubricant, Dana's patented (U-Tube) axle breather, as well as LMS hubs, UHS hubs, or Outrunner wheel seals.
The standard warranty for the S190 Series is up to five years/750,000 miles for approved linehaul applications and with Dana-approved factory-filled, synthetic lube.
