Gaskets and seals don’t last forever. However, they are designed, or they should be, last for a considerable period.  In this sense, it is vital to look at ways to preserve your gaskets in order to avoid any application downtime.  Downtime that involves additional...

Important Design Features of Rubber Sealings

When it comes to designing the perfect rubber sealing, there are a few design features to bear in mind to help achieve the optimum solution.  In this post, we explore these rubber sealing features further and provide information on the benefits and best uses for these...

Optimal Squeeze for an O Ring to be effective

A doughnut-shaped seal that is primarily used to stop liquids and air from escaping or getting into specific spaces is the function and role of an O Ring.  Also known as a mechanical gasket, O rings are designed to fit between a groove and a compression during the...

High-temperatures and O Rings, what you need to know

Fluctuations in temperature and indeed heat is a significant factor across many applications that make use of o rings.  However, what is well known is how destructive heat can be when it comes to compound deterioration.  You are making choosing the ideal o ring...

How to restore your damaged rubber seals

Under the right circumstances and having the right tools to hand, you can restore rubber gasket seals and have them working as good as new in no time.  Rubber gasket seals provide a seal between two separate mechanisms, providing airtight seals to keep liquids and...

The importance of backup rings to O rings

Backup rings are ultimately used to help stop o ring migration, and they achieve this in both static and dynamic fluid power applications as the pressure cycles occur, preventing the extrusion of an o ring in the gap.  Ultimately a backup ring is a rigid ring that...
