Dana Corp.'s Commercial Vehicle Systems Div. introduced a new family of single-speed, single-drive axles last month featuring increased approval ratings for high-horsepower engines, lighter weight, broader ratios and application coverage, and advanced gear technology.

The S190 Series was designed especially for vehicles outfitted with future drivetrain ratings of up to 2,450 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 700 hp.

According to Dana, axles in the S190 Series have an extra wide face width with 470-mm primary hypoid gearing for quieter operation, greater strength, and increased durability. The S23-190 model is available in ratios ranging from 2.69 to 7.83, for maximum flexibility in spec'ing options; ratios for the S26-190 and S30-190 units range from 3.42 to 7.83.

Optional upgrades include a driver-controlled, full locking-wheel differential; Dana Spicer LM hub systems; Dana Spicer Unitized Hub Systems; axle mounted electro-magnetic retarder; Spicer Life SPL or Series-10 yokes.

The S190 Series axles have a GCWR of up to 125,000 lb. Gross axle weight ratings for individual axles are: S23, 23,000 lb.; S26, 26,000 lb.; S30, 30,000 lb.

The new axles qualify for a 250,000-mi. initial lube drain interval when used in linehaul service with the following: factory-filled extended life lubricant approved by Dana' Dana's U-Tube axle breather; and LMS hubs, UHS hubs, or Outrunner wheel seals.
