Self-aligning Gland Rings
Our Self-aligning Gland Rings are designed for use with heavy-duty hydraulic packings where conditions are particularly arduous.
Each set 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:
- Lion® Expanding Packing.
- 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
Materials of construction
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.
