Sealing ring is the most important and effective method to solve the leakage problem of hydraulic system. If the sealing ring of the hydraulic system is bad, the sealing ring may cause unacceptable external leakage, and the leaked oil will pollute the environment; it may also allow air to enter the suction chamber, affecting the performance of the hydraulic pump and the smoothness of the movement of the hydraulic actuator. Therefore, it is very important to choose the material of the seal ring and design the shape of the seal ring reasonably in the whole process of aircraft operation.
