Retainers, (Back-Up Rings), Hydraulic and Pneumatic, Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin, Single Turn, Static Gland
<p>This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers scarf-cut polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) retainers (back-up rings) for use in static glands in accordance with AS5857. They are for use in hydraulic and pneumatic system components as anti-extrusion devices in conjunction with O-rings, packings and other elastomeric seals.</p> <p>Because of the construction of groove dimensions, back-ups specific to rod applications are designated “R” - Rod (Female), back-ups specific to piston applications are designated “P” - Piston (Male).</p> <p>Retainers specified herein have been designed for a temperature range of -65 to 275 °F (-54 to 135 °C) and a nominal operating pressure of 3000 psi (20.7 MPa) for code 09 material and 5000 psi (34.5 MPa) for code 10 material. Material codes are based on AMS3678 material types.</p> <p>Consideration has been made to accommodate cylinder breathing on piston applications, calculated at 0.002 inch/inch diameter/1000 psi (0.051 mm/mm diameter/6.9 MPa) to ensure a minimum 50% lap at -65 °F (-54 °C). This has required an increase in the diameter on certain larger sizes and a slight overlap at ambient will therefore be apparent. These parts have been designed such that the overlap at 275 °F (135 °C) will not result in axial compression of the O-rings, even in the worst tolerance stack-up situation.</p>
