O-ring seals are torus-shaped rings, meaning they are circular with a round cross-section, used to ensure the tightness of a sealed joint between two elements that transport fluid.
Although the most common type of O ring are those with a round cross-section, O ring manufacturers have created square cross-section O rings for use in specialized machines. The sealing performance of an O-ring is typically determined by its ability to undergo compression deformation to snuggly adapt to its housing. This deformation is the result of the crushing force exerted by the joint created between the components being connected. We are the leading supplier & distributor of O ring seals, we believe it is imperative to correctly design the joint housing, both in terms of shape and dimension, according to the specific characteristics of the materials used, and follow to the letter the manufacturer’s instructions.
