Upgraded Design: New Pivot Seals

In support of our customers who operate transit bus fleets in Colombia and Peru, AM Equipment developed a new windshield wiper pivot shaft seal that offers additional protection in harsh, humid environments.

Unlike the old seal, the new seal completely surrounds the pivot shaft and housing to prevent water and contaminates from entering the pivot bearing.  It is available on our Plug & Play Wiper Assemblies.

Our new seal has also proven to extend the service life of wiper systems installed on delivery trucks operating in the US heartland, where record cold winters have increased the use of road deicing salt brine solutions.

By developing continuous improvements, we at AM Equipment are contributing measurable value to our customers' products.
