Merkel Guide Rings

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The task of guides is to guide the rods and pistons of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders and prevent them from coming into direct metallic contact with the cylinder housing. The guides of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies are able to take up high shearing forces even in case of a short guiding distance and, at the same time, low frictional losses. They are also available as guide rings. Depending on the load, various materials may be used: PTFE, polyamide and laminated fabric. For every type of cylinder and application, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers the right guide with maximum reliability and durability from this portfolio.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Slit, non-metallic Merkel Guide Ring EKF.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

Non-metallic guide element for pistons.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Slit, non-metallic Merkel Guide Ring FRA.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

As a non-metallic guide element for pistons, for standardised housings, amongst others, according to ISO 10766.

  • No seizure due to metal/plastic materials combination
  • Medium load-bearing capacity
  • Chamfered profile edges prevent pressing of edge into the corner radii of the housing groove
  • Simple snap-in fitting

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Non-metallic Merkel Guide Ring KB.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

Non-metallic guide element for pistons, also for standardised housings according to ISO 10766.

  • Metal/fabric-base laminate materials combination prevents "seizing"
  • High load-bearing capacity, elastic (not plastic) behaviour up to break point
  • Chamfered profile edges prevent pressing of edge into the corner radii of the housing groove
  • Simple snap-in fitting (d ≤300)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Profiled Merkel Guide Ring Guivex KBK made from fabric-base laminate. Patented product design (patent-no.: PCT/EP95/03874).

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

Merkel KBK guide rings offer clear advantages over conventional guide strips/rings, designed for standardised housings according to ISO 10766 amongst others.

  • Interchangeable to existing operating environments of the types KB and KF
  • High radial load
  • Very good utilisation of the guide length through even distribution of stress
  • Improved drawing-in of lubricating medium through optimised distribution of stress in the contact zone between guide bush and counter-acting surface
  • Reduced stick-slip tendency
  • Outstanding running behaviour with short guide distances (no clamping)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Non-metallic Merkel Guide Strip KF, available ready to fit cut to size or by the metre.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

Non-metallic guide element for pistons, also for standardised housings as per ISO 10766.

  • Low friction, free of stick-slip
