Calculating radial load

FR = (D x L x q / v )x n

FR= maximum radial load (N)

q = compression strength at operating temperature for the given compound (N/mm)

D x L = diameter x seal width (mm)

n = number of rings

v = confidence coefficient (recommendation > 3)


Phenol resin and synthetic fabric laminated together as layers. This structure guarantees high torsion strength and elasticity. Including PTFE gives better gliding properties (Krütex200). Dimensional accuracy is improved by extremely low water absorption properties of the material (< 0,1%).

More information


- High mechanical durability

- High temperature resistance

- High wear and aging resistance

Cord length

Cord length: A = 3,14 x B - M

- Gap M from table

- B = guide ring’s effective diameter

- Piston B = øH - L

- Rod B = øH + L

- L = Depth of housing


The guide ring is stretched open when assembled into the groove


The gap behind the seal is chosen seal specifically according to operating conditions.
