Self‑aligning gland rings

Designed for use with heavy‑duty hydraulic packings where conditions are particularly arduous.

  • Heavy-duty
  • Hydraulic sealing

Each set of our self-aligning gland rings comprises two triangular section rings of wear-resistant engineering thermoplastic. Under system pressure, these slide apart from each other in a controlled manner to absorb wear and offset in the system.

Available as optional feature with the following James Walker hydraulic sealing products:

  • Chevron
  • Lion Expanding Packing
  • Lofilm
  • Lofilm HD

They are particularly recommended for hydraulic plant with:

  • Heavily worn rams
  • Large degrees of shaft offset
  • Large extrusion gaps between the gland follower and ram

Manufactured as standard in high strength, wear resistant nylon. Special water-resistant grades of nylon are available on request.

Each set is supplied as two split rings, manufactured for your specific application.
