O-Ring failure can lead to disastrous effects. Why do they create such impactful effects if they alone aren't prone to failure? Because the extenuating circumstances in which they are used create an environment where mere degrees or micrometers matter. From Outgassing to Compression Set, learn more about the 4 most common causes of O-ring failure below.
No matter what industry you’re in, chances are you’ve used (or needed to use) an o-ring. And if you’ve used an o-ring, chances are it was from Parker. That’s because for years Parker has been the industry standard in developing, manufacturing, and supplying high quality o-rings, both standard and customized.
Working at extreme high temperatures will put a strain on any product, from large machinery to o-rings. For years, when manufacturers were stuck with high-cost materials if they had any hope of finding success at such high temperatures. This was especially true when working with rubber compounds such as fluorocarbons, or FKMs.
