This expansion causes blisters and ruptures on the surface of the seal. Swelling by contact with a low viscosity fluid causes an increase in dimensions, and also lowers the tensile strength of the rubber. News Desk Case studies, images and news.

Standards and sizes

O-rings are one of the most common seals used in machine design because they are inexpensive, easy to make, reliable and have simple mounting requirements.

Common practice was to use the principles of the ISO over a broader range of cross sections. High shrinkage compounds may require dedicated tooling to comply with ISO dimensions and tolerances, but will still allow for the principle of a more accurate cross-section.

You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or For example, carbon nanotubes are used in electrostatic dissipative ios and nano-PTFE is used in ultra pure semiconductor applications.


But, there are new advances that may take some of the burden of critical sealing away from the O-ring. Several other size specifications also exist. But it is still important to maintain good surface finish of those mating parts, especially at low temperatures where the seal rubber reaches its glass transition temperature and becomes increasingly crystalline. Other failures can be caused by using the wrong size of ring for a specific recess, which may cause extrusion of the rubber.

In 36601-1 environments, soft metal seals are used.

Square rings can also be more difficult to install than O-rings. 301-1 To receive our free weekly NewsBrief please enter your email address below: Already, there are elastomers filled with nano-carbon and nano- PTFE and 36011 into O-rings used in high-performance applications. Chemical attack can degrade the material, start brittle cracks or cause it to swell.

The first patent for the O-ring, is dated May 12, as a Swedish patent. The most common failure is extrusion through the mating parts.

The physical sealing performance of square rings in static applications is superior to that of O-rings, however in dynamic applications it is inferior to that of O-rings.

This was famously demonstrated on television by Caltech physics professor Richard Feynmanwhen he placed a small O-ring into ice-cold water, and subsequently showed its loss of flexibility before an investigative committee. Successful O-ring joint design requires a rigid mechanical mounting that applies a predictable deformation to the O-ring.

Our Chart 50 tables include suggested metric shaft and cylinder sizes for which each individual O-ring is suitable.

There are also rings with a square profile, commonly called square-cuts, lathe cuts,tabular cut or Square rings. O-rings come in a variety of sizes.

Quality Assurance – Superior Seals Ltd.

At Superior, we pride ourselves on our precision o-ring range which exceeds the cross-sectional tolerances for the following dimensional standards. For example, NBR seals can crack when exposed to ozone gas at very low concentrations, unless protected.

Self-contradictory articles from November All self-contradictory articles Izo category link is on Wikidata. Many O-rings now come with batch and cure date coding, as in the medicine industry, to precisely track and control distribution.

Using conductive carbon black or other fillers can exhibit the useful properties of conductive rubbernamely preventing electrical arcing, static sparks, and the overall build-up of charge within rubber that may cause it to behave like a 360-11 electrostatic dissipative.

Also, in Class B, the five standard cross sections are replaced with a table of tolerances using a formula. You may find similar items within these categories by selecting from the choices below:. Document Centre For industry or application.

ISO standards by standard number. Metric O-rings are usually defined by the internal dimension x the cross section. Despite his legal efforts, his intellectual property rights were passed from company to company until they ended up at Westinghouse.
