- Case Studies
One of the most versatile, robust, and well-established sealing technologies. Careful consideration needs to be given to optimal gland sizing & surface finish, static vs dynamic service adjustments and workmanship standards matched to the application. Darcoid stocks millions of o-rings in most elastomer family types and creates dozens of new custom size/material combinations each year.
To extend the operational pressure rating backup rings are available. These act as anti-extrusion devices. Standard size and profiles are available in split or solid configurations depending on your use case. Brand names include "Parback" from Parker. Work with our applications engineers to confirm the modifications necessary to your gland sizing and determine the best backup material and profile for your application.
Materials and workmanship standards including FDA White List, USP Cl VI, WRAS, NORSOK, NSF 61, UL, NSF 51, EC 1935, NAS 1613, AMS3304 (VMQ), MIL-R-25988 (FVMQ), AMS-R-83248 (FKM), AMS7257 (FFKM)
