XR

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

X-rings are twin-action 4-lipped seals with an almost square cross-section profile. The X-rings achieves its sealing effect by being installed and compressed within an axial or radial installation housing. Under operating conditions, the pressure of the medium reinforces the sealing function.

 

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

A high degree of stability for dynamic application, as the X-ring is not susceptible to rolling within the groove (twisting) due to its almost square cross-section. X-rings require a lower degree of radial pretensioning. This gives rise to less abrasion due to the lower contact pressures in play. It is possible for a lubricant reservoir to be created between the sealing lips. Optimised sealing effect due to superior distribution of pressure over the almost square cross-section. No adverse effect created by the mould-separation ridge as unlike the O-ring, this is not located at the outer diameter but between the actual sealing lips.
