Parker O-rings for fluid sealing
o-rings from parker OES seals fluids and gases
O-rings from Parker O-ring and Engineered Seals division and Chomerics are available in standard and metric sizes and compounds including Viton® O-rings, silicone O-rings, fluorosilicone O-rings, perfluoroelastomer FFKM O-rings, buna O-rings, aflas O-rings, buna O-rings, metric Viton® O-rings, neoprene and encapsulated O-rings.
Parker o-rings protect and seal against fluids, liquids and gas loss. Parker O-rings are available in standard o-ring and metric sizes.
Custom O-Rings fit your engineered gland and will seal against high temperatures (high temperature o-rings) and cryogenic conditions. O-rings and seals are used in static and dynamic (rotary or reciprocating) applications to complement gaskets and other sealing devices. What is an o-ring? How an o-ring works.
Compounds for o-rings include Viton FKM o-rings, buna o-rings, silicone o-rings, fluorocarbon o-rings, nitrile o-rings (NBR), EPDM o-rings, butadiene o-rings, chloroprene and fluorinated o-rings. O-rings sizes are found in the Parker O-Ring Handbook and fit most sealing applications . Sealing Devices is an authorized Parker Sealing Technology Center.
The Parker o-ring chemical compatibility chart lists elastomer chemical resistance, and the O-ring Handbook lists properties for Viton, Fluorosilicone, Silicone, Aflas, Butadiene, Butyl, Chlorinated Polyethelene, Epichlorohyrdin, Ethylene Acrylic, EPDM Ethylene Polypropylene, Fluorocarbon, Isoprene, Neoprene, HNBR, Nitrile, SBR and silicone. Compression set is an important consideration in choosing the seal and design of o-rings after having been compressed. Critical factors of compression set include squeeze over time, temperature variations and fluid contact.

- Operating temperature. A gland operating at high temperatures may require increased volume to compensate for thermal expansion of o-rings. Conversely, when low temperature sealing is required, a more shallow gland depth might result in producing the proper squeeze for an effective seal.
- Pressure is important in determining the required hardness (durometer) of an o-ring. Durometer specifications are in the Parker O-Ring Handbook.
