Special Applications

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.

More Information

Sizing standards
AS568-xxx, Parker 2-xxx, Parker 3-xxx, Parker 5-xxx, JIS B2401, BS1806. Custom cross sections (CS), custom inside diameter (ID) and tight tolerancing are available. Darcoid has access to many thousands of non-standard sizes for which tooling is already in place. Sizing for homogenously molded o-rings is limited by press platen size. Where larger seals are needed, we can utilize a variety of fabrication hacks, including surpentine molding, continuous molding, and splice joined from extruded cord.
Backup rings - anti extrusion devices

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.

Regulatory and compliance

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)
