Trelleborg Announces Expansion of HiMod Slydring Wear Ring Range (Available in the Americas)

High-quality wear rings offer one-stop shopping for hydraulic cylinder manufacturers.

STREAMWOOD, IL — January 16, 2018 — Trelleborg Sealing Solutions announces an expansion of its HiMod® Slydring® HC wear ring range. It is introducing over 180 additional part numbers in outer diameters from 1 to 12 inches. The enhanced range becomes available early 2018, serving various fluid power applications including off-highway, material handling, industrial machines, mobile hydraulics, agricultural equipment, and other industries.

Tom Zozokos, Engineering and Product Manager at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: “Trelleborg’s expertise with injection molding means that HiMod® Slydring® HC wear rings have been engineered to meet the demanding requirements of hydraulic applications.”

HiMod® refers to a range of high-modulus plastic materials developed internally for applications demanding high wear and chemical resistance performance. The configuration of the HiMod® Slydring® HC absorbs transverse forces and prevents metal-to-metal contact between components.

Beth Figliulo, Fluid Power Segment Manager at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions says: “HC wear rings deliver reliable performance and offer our customers a chance to experience Trelleborg quality at a great price point.”

HiMod® Slydring® HC rings are ideal for use in a variety of operational conditions. They have high compressive strength and wear resistance even at elevated temperatures, provide low friction performance in lubricated settings, and are easy to install due to their simple closed-grooved design. The wear rings also eliminate local stress concentrations, fretting, and seizure, while damping mechanical vibrations and protecting against dieseling and hydrodynamic pressure problems.

The consistent parts quality and performance of HiMod® Slydring® HC wear rings mean faster installations and increased wear life between changeovers, making these products ideal for manufacturers of hydraulic cylinders. This extended range is a strong complement to Trelleborg’s other fluid power sealing products, giving customers one-stop shopping when it comes to ordering complete sealing systems.

Lubrication Management Technology Revolutionizes Hydraulic Sealing

Effective sealing in today’s demanding hydraulic applications requires seals and lubricant to work together. Trelleborg’s new Lubrication Management technology transforms hydraulic sealing by adjusting lubrication conditions of all single sealing elements within a sealing system.

Hydraulic cylinder

In this technology, adequate lubrication reduces the load on each sealing element, optimizing the performance of the hydraulic system in terms of friction, wear and lifetime.

To demonstrate this new technology and highlight its benefits versus conventional sealing systems, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed a series of tools and resources including a whitepaper, film, webinar and a comprehensive brochure.

Stick-Slip Solution – The Importance of Damper Integration in Dynamic Sealing

In a series of white papers, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions experts provide an in-depth look at technologies related to sealing and engineered products.

Check out our latest addition to the Technical Library on the website: Stick-Slip Solution – The Importance of Damper Integration in Dynamic Sealing

In this whitepaper, Trelleborg takes a closer look at the problem of stick-slip and how dampers can combat or otherwise minimize it. It must be noted that, academically, there exists very little consensus as to the underlying principles of stick-slip – so, this paper will take a practical perspective, addressing how engineers can use dampers to reduce resultant noise and vibration; once again mastering the force of friction.

As the oil and gas industry moves to recover more challenging reserves and enters the development of High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) fields, the risk of fire is increasing. There is therefore a move to the use of water-based hydraulic fluids, which present significant sealing challenges. This whitepaper takes an in-depth look at sealing materials and testing in HPHT environments.
