The product enhancements will be available immediately for the Spicer medium-duty SPL series, while updates to the heavy-duty SPL series will be available in late spring 2020. All new driveshafts and related componentry will be interchangeable with current SPL product on the market.

Medium-Duty SPL Series

Dana has made improvements to its medium-duty SPL series, including a maximum torque rating increase of up to 15% for the SPL170 model and an up to seven percent increase for the SPL140 model. These increases are achieved and confirmed through rigorous testing, improvements in analytical techniques, improved processes and materials, and extensive benchmarking of competitive products, the company said. The enhanced medium-duty SPL product will target multiple applications, allowing for rightsizing and the use of an optimum driveshaft, improving efficiency and cost.

Heavy-Duty SPL Series

The SPL170 and SPL250 heavy-duty series will incorporate another evolution of an improved, patented seal design, providing extended durability. The new composite sealing package will provide even greater resistance against environmental influence, further increasing performance life.
