Rider Rings

Rider RingsRider rings/bands are provided to prevent contact of the compressor piston with the cylinder wall. Such contact could cause problems such as scuffing or more serious and costly problems such as piston and/or liner replacement. Rider rings/bands are normally made of a low friction material such as a Telfon(tm) blend but they can also be supplied in bronze and/or PEEK(tm) for harsh applications with high temperatures.

Riders are available in solid, angle cut, butt cut or step cut designs.

Riders can be manufactured to customer specifications or cross referenced from our extensive library of OEM part numbers.

Solid Rider bands can be manufactured to "on-size" or "oversized" dimensions. Oversized dimensions give the customer the ability to install and recut rider bands to specified clearances.
