DMR Seals rod guide ring / wear ring profile FB06 has the addition of a locating ring on the outside diameter to reduce axial movement in reciprocating applications. It is a tight tolerance ring which is commonly used in pneumatic applications where precise calculated movement is critical.
This wear ring can be manufactured from several of our high-performance thermoplastic materials to provide precise clearance control and low friction operation.
The tight tolerance control on the FB06 profile ensures excellent bearing contact which helps minimise and control misalignment while the rod is under static or dynamic load.
This profile is split for ease of installation and locates into the gland and is commonly used in tandem sealing configurations where two single acting (uni-directional) seals are working in-line to provide a level of sealing redundancy.
