Functions of Piston Rings:

  • Sealing: The primary function of piston rings is to create a gas-tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall. This prevents compressed air from leaking back down into the crankcase during the compression stroke, ensuring efficient air compression.
  • Friction Reduction: While creating a seal, piston rings also help minimize friction between the piston and the cylinder wall. They achieve this by distributing the lubricating oil (in oil-lubricated compressors) or providing a low-friction sliding surface (in oil-free compressors).
  • Heat Transfer: Piston rings also play a role in transferring heat away from the piston crown, which experiences high temperatures during compression. This helps maintain proper operating temperatures for the piston and other components.

Description

INGCO S-AC-PR-ACS224501-SP2, Air Compressor- Piston Rings( S-AC-PR-ACS224501-SP2)

product details:

In an air compressor, piston rings are essential components that reside within grooves machined around the circumference of the piston. They form a tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall, preventing air from leaking during the crucial compression stroke. Here’s a detailed breakdown of their characteristics, functions, and types:

Materials for Piston Rings:

  • Cast Iron: A common and cost-effective material for compression rings, offering good wear resistance and sealing properties.
  • Steel: Some high-performance compressors may use steel rings for improved durability and heat tolerance.
  • PTFE (Teflon): Used in some oil-free compressors, these rings offer low friction and good sealing properties without the need for lubrication.
