Wire forming snap ring

Product Description


Constant section retaining rings feature a uniform, constant section. This means that the material used to make the ring is the same width at any point along the circumference of the ring. These cost less than tapered and spiral retaining rings and provide only three point contact with the groove.


When purchasing a retaining ring, most customers will buy according to the sample size, but this alone may not be enough to select the right product. GJP Bearing has sorted out some key points for purchasing retaining rings, hoping to help you improve the accuracy of purchasing retaining rings after reading.

The main points of choosing a retaining ring

  1. Movement direction: First determine the movement direction of the position of the retaining ring, such as reciprocating, rotating, spiral or fixed, etc.
  2. Key points of sealing: For example, it is determined that the active point is the tie rod seal of the inner diameter or the active point is the piston seal of the outer diameter, etc.;
  3. Temperature grade: consult the original mechanical operating instructions or evaluate the working temperature in relation to the actual working environment to determine the necessary materials.Please refer to the precautions for the description of the temperature grade, please refer to the precautions;
  4. Pressure level: verify the relevant data from the original long mechanical operating instructions, or infer the working pressure level by observing the hardness and structure of the original retaining ring, and refer to the precautions for the pressure level description.
  5. Size: Most users will choose the old samples that have been used, but the retaining ring will be greatly affected by factors such as temperature, pressure, and wear after a period of use. The original size can only be used as a reference. A better method is to measure the size of the metal groove where the retaining ring is located, and the accuracy will be higher.
