Guide rings have the function of preventing mechanical contact between pistons, bores and rods. Therefore, they have to absorb all transverse forces that occur.
Guide strips FM
Guide strips FM are made of endless material and can be cut to length depending on the diameter of application. Guide strips can be used as piston or rod rings, these elements prevent metallic contact between the piston and the bore and has the ability to safely absorb all occurring lateral forces. Guide rings are produced mechanically with turning machines in various materials with a diagonal cut. Guide rings are of vital importance for the safe operation of a hydraulic or pneumatic system and need to be aligned to the prevailing conditions.
Standard Guide rings are made of filled PTFE, thermoplastic or fabric-reinforced phenolic or polyester resin. The compressive strength depends on the material used and has a range of 15 to 100 N / mm². To calculate the maximum load per Guide ring, apply: lateral force / projected surface x 0.75
