Industrial O-rings are also known for packing which being mechanical gasket and shaped like that of tours. O-ring can be used in static applications or also in dynamic applications where the relative motion is present. Rotating pump shafts and hydraulic cylinder pistons are the common usage of dynamic applications. These rings are simplest yet highly engineered with precise dimension and designing.
Industrial O rings are commonly used in mechanical applications, such as pipe connections, and help to ensure a tight seal between two objects. O-rings are designed to be seated in a groove or housing that keeps the ring in place. Once in its track, the ring is compressed between the two pieces and, in turn, creates a strong seal where they meet.
Industrial O rings are both inexpensive and simple in design and are therefore very popular in manufacturing and industry. If mounted correctly, O-rings can withstand a very large amount of pressure and are therefore used in many applications where leaks or loss of pressure are unacceptable. For instance, O-rings used in hydraulic cylinders prevent leakage of hydraulic fluid and allow for the system to create and withstand the pressures required for operation.
