Quad ring factors

Different Quad Ring Factors for Static and Non-Rotary Dynamics Applications

Our quad rings are used for a wide range of applications including static and Non-rotary applications. Below are the following factors to consider:

  • Cross-section
  • Clearance
  • Groove dimension
  • Grove with
  • Percent Gland Fill
  • To calculate the seal squeeze
  • To detail the groove
  • Calculate the seal stretch and more.

YOSON Quad Ring Features

Our quad ring offers four definitive sealing features including:

  • Offers great lubrication retention. The grooves on the inside and outside diameter of the quad ring retain lubricant, meaning the quad ring can lower the friction and help to extend seal life.
  • Less compression force to seal.YOSSON quad ring has a multi-lobed design to provide more sealing surfaces. Less squeeze is required by the use of the quad ring to provide an effective seal, offer Less friction, reduce downtime, and increase service.
  • Hidden parting lines. The hidden parting line is the excess material where the compression mold tool comes together. The hidden line in a quad ring is on the inside of the two outer lobes meaning it does not affect the sealing lips.
  • More stable in dynamic applications. We manufactured a quad ring the commonly used for dynamics applications. It is more resistant to rolling in a wider footprint and takes up the corners of the groove.

X ring

X ring is the most commonly used seal in hydraulic cylinder, it is a typical lip seal, whether used for piston or piston rod can get a good sealing effect.

As the pressure rises, the elastic deformation of the lip increases, the tensile, compressive and bending stresses increase, the radial compression force of the X ring automatically becomes larger, and the length of contact with the sealing surface increases until the entire axial length of the X-ring is in contact with the sealing surface, thus ensuring a good seal under high pressure sealing.

Principle of action

X ring is a double-action seal with its own elastic sealing capability. The initial installation of the pre-compression generated by the radial or axial The sealing function is achieved by superimposing the contact stress in the radial or axial direction with the system pressure.

The superimposed sealing force increases as the system pressure increases. Under pressure, X ring acts like a fluid with high surface tension. like a fluid with high surface tension. The pressure is transmitted evenly to all sides.

Quad Ring X ring

How to choose X ring?

If the diameter of the shaft or hole is known, the appropriate quad rings is selected based on the following guidelines.

Static seal or reciprocating linear motion.

Seals for bores

The inner diameter size of quad rings should be compatible with the groove, or less than about 2% of the groove bottom diameter size. Because the pre-compression generated by the pre-compression force can effectively prevent the X ring-shaped seal from twisting and tumbling.

Shaft seal

The inner diameter size of quad rings should be equal to or appropriately larger than the outer diameter size of the shaft by about 0.2 to 0.3mm, or about 1% larger relative to the outer diameter size of the shaft. As a result, the seal will be easier to install, while obtaining a longer service life.

By using suitable rubber materials and appropriate formula design, effective sealing of oil, water, air, gas and various chemical media is achieved. Wide range of temperature use (- 60 ℃ ~ + 220 ℃), the pressure can reach 1500Kg/cm2 for fixed use ( with reinforcing ring).

Can be selected according to different fluids: butyl cyanide rubber (NBR), fluorine rubber (FKM), silicone rubber (VMQ), ethylene propylene rubber (EPDM), chloroprene rubber (CR), butyl rubber (BU), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), natural rubber (NR), etc.

X ring and O ring

NBR – good resistance to oil, water, solvents and high-pressure oil, with good compression distortion, anti-wear and elongation.

EPDM – heat resistant to 150 degrees, chemical resistant, corrosion resistant X-seals, not oil resistant.

Silicone material (SIL) – heat resistant to 250 degrees, oil resistance in general, not wear-resistant.

Fluorine rubber (FKM)) – heat-resistant 240 degrees, good oil resistance, wear resistance, high pressure chemical resistance.

Polyurethane (PU) – heat-resistant 120 degrees, oil resistance, wear resistance.

Neoprene (CR)-heat resistant 120 degrees, oil resistant, good low temperature resistance, ozone resistance

What is the difference between X ring and o-ring?

Star seal is the full name of the X ring, also known as quad rings, interface for the X shape, is one of the most commonly used seals in hydraulic cylinders, both as a piston seal can also be used to seal the piston rod.

O-ring is the abbreviation of O-ring seal, the interface of O-ring is round shape.

Differences in interface structure

X ring seal has X ring-shaped cross-section, also known as an X-shape, while an O-ring has an O-shaped interface, also known as a circular ring.

Cost

Quad rings has high manufacturing cost, which leads to high cost of use. O-ring is invented early, has wide application, and has lower cost of use.

Applicable environmental speed of X ring seal

reciprocating motion: ≤ 0.5m/s. Rotating motion: ≤ 2m/s

O-ring applicable environmental speed: reciprocating motion: ≤ 0.5m/s. Rotating motion: ≤ 2m/s

Working environment

Quad rings because of the structure of the non-molded line, and O-ring molded line is relatively obvious, so the X ring can be applied to both liquid media, but also for the sealing of gases, while O-ring is more suitable for the sealing of liquid media.

Specification size standard

The X ring seal is applicable to the standard size of AS568 series, and the number of specifications is limited.

O-ring size specifications are numerous, including the American Standard AS568 series, the Japanese Standard JISB2401 standard (P series, S series, G series, SS series), in addition to the Chinese national standard GB3452-92 and GB1235-76 series, ISO-3601/1 international standard, the German DIN3771 standard.

The same points of X ring seal and O-ring

Relative to the oil sealX ring seal and O-ring are relatively low cost of use.

X ring and O-rings are most commonly used materials are NBR nitrile rubber, FKM fluorine rubber, HNBR hydrogenated nitrile rubber

X ring without blocking ring working hydraulic pressure is 5Mpa, while with blocking ring working pressure can reach 30-40Mpa, O-ring without blocking ring working pressure can reach 5-10Mpa, with blocking ring O-ring working pressure can reach 40Mpa.

Conclusion

The sealing effect of X ring is better than O-ring.

Perhaps you may ask, since the X ring effect is so good, then why choose O-ring? Because O-ring use low cost, so the selection of seals is very complex, both to consider the sealing environment, but also to consider the cost of use.
