Four-Lip Seal for Statics and Dynamic Applications
X-Rings are twin-action four-lipped seals with an almost square cross-section profile. The sealing effect is achieved by being installed and compressed within an axial or radial installation housing. Under operating conditions, the pressure of the medium reinforces the sealing function. X-Rings are used for the radial and axial sealing of flanges, sleeves and covers (static application) and for sealing of pistons and rod seals, rotating shafts and helical movements (dynamic). They are often used for quasi-static applications, such as adjustment and swivelling movements. They are also applied for quasi-static applications, such as adjusting and swiveling movements.
Benefits at a Glance
- Square cross-section avoids twisting during installation
- Reduced abrasion
- Superior distribution of pressure over the cross-section
