Custom molded O-rings are specialized sealing solutions designed to meet the specific needs of various applications across industries. These O-rings can be tailored in terms of size, material, and design, ensuring optimal performance under different operating conditions. Below is a description of the types of custom molded O-rings, including their unique features and applications:
Standard O-rings are the most common type of seals used for static and dynamic applications. They are available in various materials such as Nitrile, Silicone, and Viton, catering to a wide range of temperature and chemical resistance requirements. These O-rings are designed to meet international size standards, making them suitable for a multitude of sealing tasks.
Metric O-rings are designed to fit the metric dimensions commonly used in international machinery and equipment. These O-rings come in various cross-sectional diameters and inner diameters, providing precise sealing solutions for applications requiring metric specifications.
Quad rings, also known as X-rings, have a four-lobed design that offers twice the sealing surface compared to standard O-rings. This unique design provides better sealing efficiency and reduces the risk of twisting and rolling in dynamic applications. Quad rings are ideal for high-pressure sealing situations.
Splicing kits are designed for creating custom-sized O-rings on-site. These kits include lengths of O-ring cord, adhesive, and cutting tools, allowing for quick and efficient production of custom sizes that are not readily available. Splicing kits are perfect for emergency repairs or applications requiring unique O-ring sizes.
Kalrez O-rings are made from a perfluoroelastomer material that offers exceptional chemical resistance and can withstand extreme temperatures. These O-rings are designed for demanding applications in the chemical processing, semiconductor, and aerospace industries, where other materials may fail.
Backup rings are used in conjunction with O-rings to prevent extrusion in high-pressure applications. These rings are typically made from harder materials than the O-ring itself and are placed in the gland on the low-pressure side of the O-ring. Backup rings are essential for extending the life of O-rings in harsh conditions.
Encapsulated O-rings feature a core of elastomer, such as Silicone or Viton, encapsulated in a jacket of FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) or PFA (perfluoroalkoxy). This design combines the elasticity and sealing properties of the elastomer with the chemical resistance of the fluoropolymer jacket. Encapsulated O-rings are ideal for chemical and pharmaceutical applications.
Miniature O-rings are designed for sealing applications in small assemblies and precision instruments. These O-rings are available in a wide range of materials and offer the same variety of properties as their larger counterparts but are tailored for the unique challenges of miniaturized applications.
Each type of custom molded O-ring serves specific purposes, catering to different industry requirements, from standard sealing tasks to highly specialized applications requiring advanced materials and designs.
