O-rings can, if needed, be recalled off the shelf. You may find similar items within these categories by selecting from the choices below:.

Since O-rings encompass the areas of chemistry and material scienceany advancement in nano-rubber will affect the O-ring industry. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

The first patent for the O-ring, is dated May 12, as a Swedish patent. With our expertise we can closely define and control seal tolerances and surface characteristics.

Retrieved from ” https: News Desk Case studies, images and news. Dynamic examples include rotating pump shafts and hydraulic cylinder pistons. The use of nano-PTFE in fluoroelastomers and perfluoroelastomers improves abrasion resistance, lowers friction, lowers permeationand can act as clean filler. No O-ring issues have occurred since Challengerand they did not play a role in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster of The shape can have different profiles, an x-shaped profile, commonly called the X-ring, Q-ring, or by the trademarked name Quad Ring.

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.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There are also rings with a square profile, commonly called square-cuts, lathe cuts,tabular cut or Square rings.

301-1 materials may be subjected to high or low temperatures, chemical attack, vibration, abrasion, and movement. 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 capacitor electrostatic dissipative.

This style of seal is sometimes less expensive to manufacture with certain materials and molding technologies compression moldingtransfer moldinginjection moldingespecially in low volumes. Seal rings ISO standards. We use cookies to make our website easier to use and to better understand your needs.

Despite his legal efforts, his intellectual property rights were passed from company to company until they ended up at Westinghouse. For other uses, see Oring. For example, Isp seals can crack when exposed to ozone gas at very low concentrations, unless protected. Fluid power systems – O-rings Part 1: Now two parts have been added to the standard 36011- define these, while still in revision is a section on elastomer materials. io

Standards and sizes

July Replaced By: Spiral Failure — Found on long-stroke piston seals and — to a lesser degree — 36011-1 rod seals. This allows a high local stress, able to contain high pressure, without exceeding the yield stress of the O-ring body. The most common failure is extrusion through the mating parts. As long as the pressure of the fluid being contained does not exceed the contact stress of the O-ring, leaking cannot occur.

The documentation issues and details are continually being revised and updated according to demands from individual customers and the industry in general. 3601-11 control of all aspects of seal manufacture ensures that we always comply with recognised standards applied by the industry.


Limits of size for surface imperfections for Grade N o-rings Click the image to enlarge Quality control: This contrasts with the standard O-ring’s comparatively larger single contact surfaces top and bottom.

Elastomers are sensitive to ionizing radiation. Click to learn more.

Quality is an integral part of the Superior customer service philosophy. The pressure of the contained fluid transfers through the essentially incompressible O-ring material, and the contact stress rises with increasing pressure.

BS ISO 3601-1:2008

Archived from the original on Transmissions hydrauliques et pneumatiques. But, there are new advances that may take some of the burden of critical sealing away from the O-ring. Square rings can also be more difficult to install than O-rings. Lundbergthe inventor of the O-ring, received the patent.

ISO 3601 Metric O-Rings

However, the temperature of the rubber O-rings remained significantly lower than that of the surrounding air. Square rings are usually used only in dynamic applications as energizers in cap seal assemblies. Already, there are elastomers filled with nano-carbon and nano- PTFE 361-1 molded into O-rings used in high-performance applications. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Synthetic rubbers – Thermosets:. This twists the O-ring as the sealed device is cycled and finally causes a series of deep spiral cuts typically at a 45 degree angle on the surface of the seal.

This was blamed on a failed O-ring seal.
