Encapsulated O-Rings

O-ring failure is very common in many fluid power applications. Swelling and chemical attack are two of the most common causes of their failure. Encapsulated O-rings are a special type of O-rings, which are designed for overcoming these causes. These sealing solutions provide reliable performance in many critical process applications. SSP Seals provides encapsulated O-rings, which have properties of recovery, as well as elasticity, which are important in many crucial applications.

Beneficial Features of Encapsulated O-rings provided by SSP Seals

Following are some feature highlights of the encapsulated O-rings provided by us:

  • These O-rings can easily match the temperature and chemical resistance of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) rings.
  • Our encapsulated O-rings allow easy cleanup of various viscous materials. Also, these rings are chemically inert.
  • The O-rings can become an easy replacement for various exotic O-ring components as well as Kalrez.
  • These O-ring seals help increase the profitability of equipment that uses corrosive fluids and gases by improving its uptime.
  • The encapsulated O-rings are available in metric, as well as AS568 dash sizes and are phthalate free.
  • Available in diverse material configurations, these O-seals work perfectly across a wide range of temperatures.
    • PFA Encapsulated Silicone: -80ºF to 500ºF
    • FEP/PFA Encapsulated FKM: -10ºF to 300ºF
    • FEP Encapsulated Silicone: -80ºF to 400ºF
    • FEP Encapsulated EPDM: -65ºF to 300ºF

Benefits of Encapsulated O-rings

Following benefits of these special O-rings make them ideal for various industrial applications:

  • Low permeation and contamination
  • Excellent resistance against all media (except for some fluorine compounds)
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • FDA compliant, and suited for use in food and beverage handling applications
  • High-performance sealing for various critical applications.
