• Pile of X-Ring Seals

    What Makes X-Ring Seals Better?

    • 

    Twice the Sealing Surface — Multi-lobed design provides more sealing surfaces than standard O-Rings.

    • 

    Prolonged Seal Life – With multiple seal points, less squeeze is required to provide an effective seal. Less friction and wear will increase seal life and lower maintenance costs.

    • 

    Prevents Spiral Failure – The “X” profile creates a stable seal that is more resistant to rolling in a groove than an O-Ring when used in a dynamic application.

    • 

    Reduced Leakage – Parting lines of X-Ring seals are located in the valley between the lobes away from the critical sealing surface.

    • 

    Better Lubricant Retention – Grooves on the inside and outside diameter of these rings retain lubricant thereby lowering friction and extending packing life.

    • 

    Less Force, Better Seal – Lower breakaway forces and reduced operating pressures make them ideal in reciprocating applications.

    • 

    The Right Fit – X-Rings will fit in standard O-Ring grooves for most applications.
