Precision O‑rings are used as static radial or axial seals in all sectors of mechanical, plant, automotive and equipment engineering.
The sealing action of the O‑ring is achieved by elastic deformation of its cross-section in a suitably designed housing. The pressure of the fluid being sealed also squeezes the O‑ring. The elastomer transfers the pressure evenly in all the effective directions.
Compounds and coatings
ManoyDetect® – Metal detectable materials
In food processing and packaging industry applications ManoyDetect® enhanced materials will allow detector equipment to identify foreign matter in the processed material resulting from a damaged seal. Depending on the sensitivity of the metal detector fitted this offers a high degree of safety and will prevent contamination of the processed material.
ManoyCoat® – Anti-friction coating
ManoyCoat® coated O‑rings offer special assembly and disassembly advantages due to their anti-friction properties. For automated assembly, the coating provides smooth feeding. Various coating types are available for static applications (103, 105 and 110). Coatings 101, 102 and 106 are suitable for O‑rings in dynamic applications.
ManoyPerfluor® – For aggressive chemicals
The ManoyPerfluor® O‑ring combines the typical properties of elastomers with the almost universal resistance of PTFE. ManoyPerfluor® compounds are suitable for use with aggressive chemicals and vapours and at temperatures up to +320 °C. Also ideal for aseptic applications.
