Within the pharmaceutical industry, seal quality is of utmost importance. Few industries expect their seals to withstand such exacting, aggressive environments as pharmaceuticals; seal quality can affect the ultimate performance of machinery, testing procedures, and commercial packaging, as well as the quality of pharmaceuticals themselves.
O-rings are integral to almost every industrial function on the planet. While there are thousands of commercially-produced O-rings available for purchase at any given moment, sometimes only a custom O-ring will do.
Industrial O-rings come in a staggering variety of materials, shapes, sizes, and even colors.
O-rings come in many shapes and sizes, are cost-effective, and can function in a large number of settings.
When choosing to install an O-ring seal, squeeze ratios are incredibly important. Understanding the degree to which a seal is squeezed by its mating hardware is the first step in selecting the appropriate material and design for any application.
