Specifications and  Recommendations       

a.The sealing by means of O'ring avoids leaks and fluid or gas escapes and presents the following advantages: 
•Sealing in different pressure and temperature ranges. 
•No need of adjustments.
•Requires reduced places.
b.The inside diameter and its section diameter establishes the O'ring measurement.
c.The O'rings are stretched seals of compression . That means that have to be flattened to work. 
For Static usage: (Surfaces to be sealed that do not move between them) the flattening varies between 12 % to 25 % from the 
section (S).
For dynamic usage: (Surfaces to be sealed that move between each other) the flattening varies between 8 % to 20 % from the 
section (S).
d.To determinate which compounds must be used, it is advised to consider the types of fluid, working pressure and temperature, and lineal speed.
