O-Ring Selection and Groove Design Assistance.
The engineering design guides developed by Ace Seal are intended to provide assistance with gland design static axial applications. These developmental design guides make it easier for the user to install and manipulate O-rings with a standard axial squeeze gland design. Contact Ace Seal today.
Groove design guide for static o-ring face seals provides default recommendations on width, depth, diameter and more for basic applications. O-ring face seals are used in a variety of applications, including bolted flanges or removable lids. Simple selection tool to easily order online today.
Due to the fact that there are literally dozens of O-Ring standards globally, finding a single recognized standard for metric O-Ring tolerances is virtually impossible. After extensive research, we have adopted the tolerances shown in the following table, which are based in ISO 3601-1, Class B, Annex A.4. For those sizes not specified in this table, please contact our Customer Service.
O-ring groove design is a key consideration in the o-ring selection process. Browse design considerations and recommendations for static face seals, metric o-rings, static dovetail o-rings, static rod-piston o-rings and dynamic rod-piston o-rings. Once you find the right o-ring groove design you can easily order online from the world's largest o-ring inventory network. O-Ring Size Charts O.
Face Type Seals. The face seal design chart below explains the hardware dimensions to use for an O-ring seal when the groove is cut into a flat surface. For designing systems which contain internal pressure, like the example below, the groove's outside diameter (OD) is primary, and the groove's width then determines the inside diameter.
O’ring Groove Design. As important as the o’ring seal itself is the groove that the o’ring seats into. The groove must be designed to accommodate not just the o’ring size, but also its intended usage; be it dynamic or static operation, radial or axial loading, vacuum or high pressure. The following information is a guide for o’ring groove dimensions for both static and reciprocating.
O-ring Cord Cut Length Calculator. Below are three calculators, the first using the outside and inside diameters, the second using the outside diameter and section and the third using the inside diameter and section. All calculators give the cut length of cord used to manufactured the o-ring of the sizes selected. Use either millimeters or inches for input, results should be interpreted in.
