The O-ring has excellent sealing performance and high working life. The working life of dynamic pressure sealing is 5-10 times higher than that of conventional rubber sealing products, up to several tens of times. Under certain conditions, it can have the same life as the sealing base.
O-ring friction resistance is small, the dynamic and static friction forces are equal, which is 1 / 2-1 / 4 of the friction force of the "0" rubber ring, which can eliminate the "creeping" phenomenon of movement at low speed and low pressure.
O-ring is highly wear-resistant, and has automatic elastic compensation function after the sealing surface is worn.
O-ring has good self-lubricating properties. It can be used for oil-free lubrication sealing.
O-ring structure is simple, easy to install.
O-ring working pressure: 0-300MPa; working speed: ≤15m / s; working temperature: -55-250 degrees.
O-ring applicable medium: hydraulic oil, gas, water, mud, crude oil, emulsion, water-glycol, acid.
O-ring seals are suitable for installation on various mechanical equipments, and play a sealing role in static or moving state under the specified temperature, pressure, and different liquid and gas media. In machine tools, ships, automobiles, aerospace equipment, metallurgical machinery, chemical machinery, engineering machinery, construction machinery, mining machinery, petroleum machinery, plastic machinery, agricultural machinery, and various types of instruments, various types of seals are widely used element. O-rings are mainly used for static sealing and reciprocating sealing. When used for rotary motion sealing, it is limited to low-speed rotary sealing devices. O-rings are generally installed in grooves with a rectangular cross-section on the outer or inner circle for sealing. O-ring seals still play a good role in sealing, shock absorption in the environment of oil resistance, acid and alkali, grinding, chemical corrosion and other environments. Therefore, the O-ring is the most widely used seal in hydraulic and pneumatic transmission systems.
