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.
