Here's a comprehensive guide on o-ring materials used for fluid sealing applications across many different industries.
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.
