  1. MAEON LABORATORY Comparison of O-Ring Materials

  2. • While choosing an O-ring for your application, a ton

    of significance ought to be set on the material of the seal being utilized. Since an appropriate fixing activity is exceptionally subject to the state of your O-ring, it is significant that an O-ring Testing in Chennai material be picked to best suit the working climate of your application. A portion of the normal materials used to make O- rings are nitrile elastic or Buna-N, Viton(r), silicone elastic, neoprene, and PTFE or Teflon(r). • Picking an O-ring material is reliant upon various variables, however two of the most basic elements are the working temperature range that O-rings are exposed to and the various synthetic substances they might be presented to. Some extra factors that assume a part in the choice of an O-ring material incorporate protection from tearing and scraped area, and daylight or maturing. Since most O-ring materials respond distinctively to different conditions just as synthetic compounds, every material enjoys its own benefits and drawbacks. •
  3. Nitrile Rubber: • Perhaps the most well-known material used to

    make O-rings is nitrile elastic or Buna-N, which is a manufactured elastic copolymer. This material has superb protection from water, pressure driven liquids, solvents, oils and other oil based goods. This component, combined with its working temperature scope of between - 65 degrees F to +275 degrees F, has made nitrile elastic one of the most generally utilized elastomers to make O-ring seals. • Nonetheless, this material has its limits; nitrile is for the most part not suggested for applications where it very well may be presented to daylight and ozone, just as specific synthetics, which incorporate ketones, esters, and sweet-smelling hydrocarbons. • Moreover, its defenselessness to ozone additionally makes it important that nitrile elastic seals are not put away close to electric engines that regularly produce ozone. Its high protection from oil based commodities and sensible protection from temperature has prompted Nitrile elastic O-rings turning into the best option for different applications in the vehicle business. • •
  4. Silicon Rubber • Silicone rubbers are an assortment of elastomeric

    polymers created from silicon, hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. Silicones for the most part have helpless protection from scraped spot and tearing, just as low elasticity in addition to high co-productive of grating - highlights that make them unsatisfactory for dynamic fixing applications. • Notwithstanding, its outstanding protection from outrageous temperatures, going from as low as - 150 degrees F to as high as +500 degrees F, makes it ideal for applications where seals are presented to high dry warms, as in car parts and cookware. Viton(r): • Viton(r) is one more engineered elastic usually utilized for making O-ring seals, which is a sort of FKM elastomer. This present elastomer's amazing protection from solvents and oils, just as its protection from expansive working temperature ranges, has made it a well known for use in various applications. • However its working temperature goes from - 10 to +400 degrees F, seals produced using this material are referred to withstand temperatures as high as +600 degrees F for brief time frames. • This mix of properties settles on Viton an optimal decision for high temperature applications just as applications presented to a wide range of liquids. One such application that has embraced Viton O-rings is SCUBA plunging, where the O-ring seals are utilized in the jumper's air tank. Be that as it may, however Viton is viable with most hydrocarbons, it is by and large not viable with ketones and natural acids.
  5. PTFE • One fluoropolymer regularly used to produce O-rings is

    PTFE, or Teflon(r), as it is normally known. PTFE is perhaps the most artificially idle material used to make O-rings and very impervious to oils, solvents, bases, acids, steam, and different synthetics. Its unrivaled protection from scraped spot and tearing makes it ideal for dynamic fixing applications. • Nonetheless, there are not many disadvantages to utilizing PTFE O-rings. The first is their powerlessness to be compacted as successfully as other generally utilized O-ring materials, which converts into wasteful fixing. The other significant burden of this material is its helpless virus stream attributes under consistent strain. • All things considered, its substance obstruction and low coefficient of erosion has made it a famous fixing choice in numerous valves and different applications. • Neoprene: • Neoprene is one more manufactured elastic that is routinely used to make O-ring seals. This elastomer is impervious to creature and vegetable fats, just as most oils and solvents. In any case, O-ring seals produced using this material are for the most part not prescribed for applications that include openness to ketones, esters, fragrant hydrocarbons, and solid oxidizing acids. •
  6. Regular Rubber • As of now, normal elastic O-rings are

    infrequently utilized because of the coming of manufactured elastomers, for example, Nitrile elastic and Viton. Regular elastic can be utilized with creature oils, vegetable oils, and most oxidizing synthetic compounds. In any case, it isn't suggested for use with oils, oil solvents, sweet-smelling hydrocarbons, and in applications that request openness to daylight or ozone. • These recorded materials are ordinarily utilized elastomers for making O-rings, yet different materials, like Kalrez, are likewise utilized in specific extraordinary applications. Kalrez is an ideal trade for Viton in applications that have working temperatures of up to 500 degrees F. Additionally, there are different elastomers utilized for explicit fixing purposes. Whatever the material you decide for your application, care ought to be taken to guarantee its similarity with working temperatures, liquids, and climate. • The criticality of picking the best material for your application is immediately evident when we consider the reason for Space Shuttle Challenger calamity. This misfortune was brought about by the disappointment of an O-ring that lost its versatility and became weak because of a surprising drop in surrounding temperature. However most O-ring disappointments probably won't prompt the death toll at standard with this fiasco, there is no denying the unmistakable monetary misfortune brought about by a bombed machine or gadget. •
