Application - Engineered Rider rings are available for all operating conditions. They
provide excellent sealing capabilities & piston support, preventing
piston-to-cylinder contact. We fabricate these rings in a variety of styles ranging
from a conventional segmental straight, angle cut, step cut design, to more complex
configurations like two & three piece segmental, grooved outer face and beveled
edges & including the twin ring design.
Rider rings are manufactured from various composites of PTFE - Glass fiber, Glass graphite, Glass molybdenum-disulphide, Carbon, Graphite, Ceramic, Bronze & Bronze molybdenum-disulphide for applications in low to high pressure & continuous duty air and gas compressors. These rings are available for cylinder sizes 2" to 34".
