O-Ring Groove Design for Packing Preformed, Elastomeric O-Ring Seals, Static, Axial Compression, Metric
|Publication Date:||1 November 1989|
This recommended practice provides the design criteria for static elastomeric O-ring seal applications, axial compression (face type) groove dimensions for aerospace metric O-ring sizes specified in MA2010. The conditions considered to formulate the design criteria are also described, e.g., seal squeeze and groove volume to accommodate O-ring swell.
The following static, axial compression O-ring groove categories have been incorporated:
a. Internal pressure
b. External pressure
Tables of O-ring groove dimensions are included based on the design criteria specified herein. Dimensions in this document are in millimeters, unless otherwise specified.
