SEALS CT O-RING RED SILICONE
An O-ring, also known as a packing or a toric joint, is a mechanical gasket in the shape of a torus; it is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section, designed to be seated in a groove and compressed during assembly between two or more parts, creating a seal at the interface. O-rings are one of the most widely utilized sealing products because they’re inexpensive, reliable and have simple mounting requirements. O-rings can be used in a variety of static (non-moving) and dynamic (moving) applications. O-rings are frequently supplemented with a lubricant to assist in installation and sealing asperities.
A mechanical seal is a device that helps join systems or mechanisms together by preventing leakage (e.g. in a pump system), containing pressure, or excluding contamination. The effectiveness of a seal is dependent on adhesion in the case of sealants and compression in the case of gaskets or o-rings.
