Our extensive stock-holding of o/rings includes inch sizes and metric sizes to a range of international, national and industry standards. These are held in a variety of general and high performance elastomers to suit the vast majority of industry applications and can be manufactured to customised dimensions.
O-rings are one of the simplest, yet most engineered, precise, and useful seal designs ever developed. They are one of the most common and important elements of machine design. O-ring selection is based on chemical compatibility, application temperature, sealing pressure, lubrication requirements, durometer, size and cost.
We supply and manufacture o-rings in sizes up to 2 100mm in the following compounds:
Basic O-Ring Groove Dimensions:
The measurement »b« which is the width of the o-ring groove, has to be larger than the deformed o/ring. Depending upon application the groove may be open on one side. However, the pressure applied to the medium to be sealed must have full access to the o/ring.
* Please note that the dimensions listed below are intended as a guide and it is recommended that you contact our technical experts for their input and assistance.
Groove Sizes – Static Application:
*In case of using back-up rings, the width of groove »b« is increased by the width of the back-up ring and in case of support on either side by the double width of the back-up rings.
