Piston Glide Ring

Double acting seal for pistons subjected to dynamic loads. The Piston Glide Ring has low friction, no stick-slip, minimal break-out forces and is wear-resistant. It can be installed with an O-Ring, or, for improved seal force and wear, a Square Ring energizer can be used.

Piston Glide Rings are available in most PolyFluor™ and PolyTel™ materials.

Operating Ranges:

  • Speed: Reciprocating motion up to approximately 49 ft/s (15 m/s)
  • Temperature: Approximately -65°F to +392°F (-54°C to +200°C), depending on the elastomer energizer compound
  • Dynamic Pressure: Up to 11,500 PSI (80 MPa)
