Stemco unveils wheel end assembly, plugs

Stemco recently announced a trio of new products, led by the Trifecta pre-adjusted hub assembly for the “N” trailer spindle application, which covers many commercial trucking and trailer wheel-end applications.

The Trifecta pre-adjusted hub assembly includes six different components that provide an all-in-one wheel end, minimizing the potential of installation challenges.

Meanwhile, new water-resistant ESP and waterproof ESP Plus hub cap plugs have also been unveiled. Both plugs are designed to protect lubricant and help keep water out of the wheel end, which is particularly important in high-water areas or around loading docks.

The ESP plug is a standard offering with the Defender hub cap in the steer axle Trifecta assembly, but it will also be available to purchase as a stand-alone product.
