Rubber O-rings have the following advantages compared to other types of seals:
1. Suitable for a variety of sealing forms: static sealing, dynamic sealing, suitable for various materials, size and groove have been standardized, strong interchangeability
2, suitable for a variety of sports: rotary motion, axial reciprocating motion or combined motion (such as rotary reciprocating combined motion)
3, suitable for a variety of different sealing media: oil, water, gas, chemical media or other mixed media
Effective sealing of oil, water, air, gas and various chemical media through the selection of suitable rubber materials and appropriate formulation design. The temperature range is wide (-60 °C ~ + 220 °C), and the pressure can be up to 1500Kg/cm2 in fixed use (combined with reinforcing ring).
4, simple design, compact structure, easy to assemble and disassemble
The rubber O-ring cross-section structure is extremely simple, and has a self-sealing effect, and the sealing performance is reliable. Since the rubber O-ring itself and the mounting structure are extremely simple and standardized, installation and replacement is very easy.
5, many varieties of materials
Can be selected according to different fluids: nitrile rubber (NBR), fluororubber (FKM), silicone rubber (SIL), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), neoprene (CR), natural rubber (NR) hydrogenation Nitrile rubber (HNBR), butyl rubber (IIR), silicone rubber (FLS), etc.
6, low cost
