Ready-to-fit clip-on polymer piston rings are increasingly replacing PTFE tape, as they can be fitted with one simple movement.
The clip-type guide rings are used in valves, actuators and lifting components in armatures, the food and drinks industry, chemical and medical technology and many others.
The igus piston rings are lubrication free, wear-resistant, have a defined clearance and are dimensionally stable even with edge loads.
This makes the “iglidur” piston rings suitable for linear and/ or rotary, lifting or pivoting movements.
One major advantage – in addition to being lubrication free – is they are fast fitting. The ready-to-fit piston rings are fitted in only one movement, into an undercut machined in a bore or in a groove of a shaft.
Polymer piston rings made of the tribo-optimised universal material “iglidur J” are now available ex stock in 13 dimensions for shaft diameters from 10 to 70mm.
The compact AC/DC power supply units supply 100 per cent output at ambient temperatures of up to 60°C.
They can be used in a wide temperature range between -25 and 70°C and therefore also in outside areas.
