Aavolyn # 53-43901-610, AVA45 TY430 Butt Cut Rider Ring

The rider split or wear ring is part of all piston designs where there is no lubrication or the possibility of loss of lubrication exists during operation. New process compressors have rider rings included whether the compressor is lubricated or non-lubricated. The rider supports the weight of the piston and prevents contact with the cylinder wall. It is designed taking into consideration the weight of the piston and rod, the physical properties of the ring material, the operating conditions and the desired ring life. AAVOLYN engineers have considerable experience in designing Teflon® rider rings for all pressures, temperatures and gases. The Type 430 split rider ring is recommended unless the ring travels out into the counter bore area. Side and face grooves can be added to ensure the rider ring does not act as a piston ring. The large surface area would generate significant frictional heat. Therefore grooves are necessary to prevent the ring from sealing. The split rider is available in step, angle or butt cut design.

Material Description

AVA45 performs exceptionally well in non-lubricated applications where operating temperatures are a major factor in the performance of the seal. AVA45 combines the strength and thermal conductivity of the bronze with the frictional properties of the Moly Disulfide for both cryogenic and high temperature air service. Wear tests performed by the US Navy for their high pressure non lube compressors showed AVA45 to have the best wear properties of all standard Teflon® tested.
Recommended Applications: High Temperature Air Cryogenic Service
