Guide Elements

Guidance of Pistons and Piston Rods

Guide elements absorb transverse forces that occur and prevent contact between the piston rod and cylinder cover and between the piston and cylinder barrel in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Seven different guide element types provide maximum flexibility in usage. The variants GS01 and GS10 are suitable for light to medium surface pressures at high sliding speeds, while GS05, FRK05 and FRS05 are mainly used for high surface pressures and low sliding speeds.

Benefits at a Glance

  • GS01 and GS10 show very good friction and lubricating behavior, prevent stick-slip-effects and show a high thermal and chemical stability. Available by the meter
  • GS05, FRK05 and FRS05 permit high surface pressures and show very good wear characteristics
  • GS05 is available as metered material and a good choice for larger diameters
  • FRK01 and FRS01 (guide rings): tailored to the desired diameter
  • Good lifetime
  • Very good price-performance ratio
  • Suitable for many industrial applications

Important note: Dichtomatik products comply with common industrial standards and therefore are suitable for many applications excluding safety-critical ones like Automotive. Premium Freudenberg products are the right choice for all applications ensuring highest quality and safety standards and therefore optimal total cost of ownership.
