Hydraulic Guide Rings
A hydraulic cylinder's piston and rod are guided and lateral forces are absorbed by the guide ring or the wear ring. The moving components of the cylinder must come into metal-on-metal contact with one another, such as the piston and the cylinder or the rod and the cylinder head.
A high bearing load capacity, the removal of local stress concentrations, wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, and reduced maintenance costs are a few benefits of these non-metallic guide rings over conventional metal guide rings.
The tapes for the guide rings may be ordered either cut to length or by the meter, then they can be customized to your needs. Due to the addition of carbon to the PTFE substance, it has a high load capacity (compressive strength), minimal wear, and decreased friction.
In the event of slow sliding speed, there is no propensity to stick-slip. The guide rings usually are accessible in useful proportions and have plain groove patterns. We offer simple piston designs without any metal-to-metal contact. The guide ring profile geometry is well suited to operate in both dry and oil-free air as well as greased air.
