The function of hydraulic wear rings is to guide the piston and piston rod of a hydraulic cylinder. They absorb transverse forces while at the same time preventing metal to metal contact. As a result it optimizes the performance of the sealing system.
Hydraulic wear rings and guide rings are available in three different material types all of which are wear-resistant and demonstrate outstanding friction properties.
Low friction, low to medium duty with limited radial forces. PTFE based so available off the roll
Made from a modified polymeric material. Friction reducing fillers for medium to heavy duty
Constructed of fabric reinforced composite materials. As a result they are used for heavy duty and high radial forces.
