About Us


Phoenix Piston Rings (PPR) has been specialising in the manufacturing of Industrial Piston Rings for over 50 years. Originally located in St.Kilda, the company relocated to the current location some ~35 years ago.



During this period we have built-up considerable expertise in the manufacture of original and replacement Piston Rings for a wide range of Industrial Applications.

Piston Rings are used extensively through-out Industry for the sealing of gases and liquids, as mechanical retainers and for the sealing against the ingress of dust and contaminants.

Due to varying operating conditions, specific applications, customer’s preferences and development have led considerable variations in Piston Ring design and materials to optimise performance in accordance with specific requirements.



Through past experience PPR have determined a range of the more commonly required ring sizes and types, which are kept in stock for regular Customers.

Due to the wide range of Piston Ring Sizes, Types, Joints, Materials etc. it is impossible to maintain stock of all possible ring configurations. In particular, re-furbished equipment often requires oversize rings to compensate for re-boring, honing or other re-machining operations.

Accordingly, PPR specialises in the manufacturing of rings to customers’ drawings, specifications or as per sample rings provided. We have prepared an inquiry page which explains our identification conventions and any required information.



We believe that Phoenix Piston Rings has established and maintains a sound reputation for providing a precision, quality products that conform to our customers’ specifications and are reliably supplied in the specified time.

We would be pleased to further discuss any of your requirements and welcome any feedback.
