O Ring

O Ring seals are unlike many other materials that design engineers confront. Metal or plastic parts, for example, are probably failing if visibly distorted. But an O-ring must be deformed to function properly. In fact, an O-ring that is not compressed in its application is the wrong O-ring. The following list provides some “rules of…

O Ring Failure Analysis

O Ring Failure Analysis When o-rings fail, there are clear traces that allow conclusions about the damage-causing mechanisms. Even the fact that there are no traces can be seen as a valuable hint to the future proceeding.The damaged seal itself is examined thoroughly to find the damage-causing mechanisms. Therefore, first of all its dimensions are…
