Overview of the Ring Max TM System What is a ring groove? An API (American Petroleum Institute) specified groove used in the oil and gas industry that is machined in the face of 2 mating surfaces (flanges) to accept a metallic ring that forms the seal when assembled.
Large Valve Bodies for the deep sea oil industry 625 Inconel weld overlay around each connection area Overview of the Ring Max TM System
R ring gasket BX ring gasket RX ring gasket American Petroleum Institute (API) standard grooves Overview of the Ring Max TM System
R ring gasket M8, Model R oval is a standard ring joint gasket designed for flanges with standard ring joint grooves. M9, Model R octagonal is a standard ring joint gasket designed for flanges with standard ring joint grooves. Overview of the Ring Max TM System
RX ring gasket M12, Model RX is a ring joint gasket for pressures up to approximately 700 bar. This model is characterized as pressure energized, the outer sealing surfaces form the first contact with the flanges. Higher pressure causes increased gasket stress, improving the efficiency of the seal. RX seals are interchangeable with the R model groove. Overview of the Ring Max TM System
BX ring gasket M11, model BX is a ring joint gasket for very high pressures (up to 1500 bar). This gasket is suited only for API-type BX flanges and grooves. BX gaskets incorporate a pressure balance hole to ensure equalization of pressure. Overview of the Ring Max TM System
Ring gaskets Ring gasket materials vary dependant on the environment they are used in. Basic materials: Carbon Steel Stainless Steel304, 304L, 309, 316, 316L, 316 Ti, 321 Nickel200 Incoloy600, 800, 825 Monel400 HastelloyB2, C276 Overview of the Ring Max TM System

First generation Ring Max TM Design 306 Different Variations!
Overview of the Ring Max TM System Reduce Ring Groove cut times in Inconel 625 clad material to less than one minute using Greenleaf ® WG-300 ceramic inserts! Available for machining Stainless Steel with carbide grade G-915 Available for machining Alloy Steel with carbide grade GA-5036 Most BX, R and RX ring groove sizes are available in multiple shank configurations. Since the beginning of the Ring Max TM program, we have sold over 700 Ring Max TM cutters.
Based on the many variations and success of this cutter design, Greenleaf ® has designed the next generation of Ring Max TM cutters for ease of use and to increase your productivity.

Greenleaf ® Ring Max TM Order Sheet
There is now an easy-to-follow system for the defining and ordering of the Ring Max System. The Ring Max 2 & 3 are redesigned for maximum security and performance to be more in line with today's technology. We can now offer a large range of cutters and shank options with the new Ring Max 3. There will now be more availability and reduced lead times with the redefined Greenleaf ® Ring Max system. With the Greenleaf ® Ring Max order sheets, you can define what the customer requires and send in the information for a faster quotation turn around. Greenleaf ® Ring Max TM System Review
GREENLEAF ® RING MAX TM 3 Technical Data International Sales Conference July 2012 GREENLEAF ® RING MAX TM 3 Technical Data International Sales Conference July 2012
Greenleaf ® Ring Max TM 3 Technical Data 2 Piece Ring Max design Allows for multiple spindle mounts Gives more versatility to smaller Sub – Contract machine shops High accuracy of repeatability More integration allowing customers to use on all available machines Cost effective, efficient solutions for shank or head replacement in event of damage.
Imagine a subcontract machine shop manufacturing Oil & Gas equipment machining API ring grooves with : 2 x VMCs with HSK-100 spindle mounts 3 x HMCs with Cat 50 spindle mount 1 x VMC with BT-50 spindle mount 2 x Turn / Mill machines with DIN Where Does This Tool Fit Into The Marketplace? Where Does This Tool Fit Into The Marketplace?
Problems Presented By The Shop Manager: Too many machines with different back ends Too much investment required to be able to run on all machines Not enough ring grooves being machined to warrant tooling up all machines
The Solution: Greenleaf ® Ring Max TM 3
The customer prepared a test block with 14 test ports welded up The Test:
Cutters Tested: BX150 & BX152 Back End – DIN Taper Cutters Tested: BX150 & BX152 Back End – DIN Taper
How We Ran The Test: BX152 – Test Nos 1, 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 BX150 – Test Nos 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 We ran the above 2 tools as detailed on the ports above We had 2 x back ends and after each groove we changed the back end We machined 1 off each size with existing tooling to bench mark ovality & tolerance

Since the Ring Max program beginning we have sold many cutters around the world which has provided proven cost savings to those global customers. With this now being a standard product offering allowing shorter lead times we will be able to get the cutters to our customers faster. The Ring Max 3 adds versatility to the Ring Max line up and testing has proven the 2 piece construction to be accurate and effective. For those who do not like the Ring Max 3 two piece construction we still offer the Ring Max 2 one piece construction. Greenleaf ® Ring Max System
