Seal Type and Shape
   Seal Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Spring-Energized       Spring-energized seals consist of a plastic jacket, flange, and elastic core. Plastic jackets are more ductile than flanges. Elastic cores include a closely wound helical spring whose coils have a specific compression resistance. During compression, pressure forces the plastic jacket to yield and ensures positive contact with the flange’s sealing faces. Each coil of the helical spring acts independently, allowing the seal to conform to the flange’s surface irregularities. 
   O-Ring       O-Rings have an O-shaped or circular cross-section. They are used as secondary seals and gaskets. 
   C-Ring       C-Rings are fully vented O-Rings that are self-energizing under pressure. Typically, C-Rings are interchangeable with O-Rings of the same free height. 
   E-Ring       E-rings have an E-shaped cross-section. 
   U-Ring / V-Ring       U-Rings have a U-shaped cross-section and V-Rings have a V-shaped cross-section. Because of their geometries, U-Rings and V-Rings are often regarded as one type. These robust seals are able to withstand a wide range of pressures and temperatures. 
   W-Ring       W-Rings have a W-shaped cross-section. 
   Wedge       Wedge seals consist of a simple metallic chamfer ring. 
   Specialized or Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary metal ring seal.

   Shape       
   Your choices are...         
   Round       Seals are round. 
   Rectangular / Square       Seals are rectangular or square. 
   Oblong / Oval       Seals are oblong or oval. Oblong seals are similar to round or square seals, but slightly elongated in one direction.  Oval seals are egg-shaped. 
   Specialized or Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary seal shape.

Performance Specifications
   Temperature       The operating temperature is the range of ambient temperatures at which metal ring seals continue to function properly without permanent changes to their sealing properties. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Cryogenic Application       Seals are suitable for cryogenic applications.  Cryogenic denotes low temperatures (approximately below -200°C) in which gases are in a liquid phase. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Pressure       This is the range of pressures under which seals are designed to operate.  
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Vacuum Application       Seals are suitable for use in vacuum applications where the environmental pressure is less than atmospheric pressure.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Physical Specifications
   Outside Diameter       This is the outside diameter of the seal. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Length       This is the largest outside dimension of square, rectangular, oval, or oblong seals. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish and silver-white metallic element that is malleable, ductile, light, and trivalent. Aluminum provides good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and oxidation resistance.  
   Copper       Copper is a common reddish metallic element that is ductile and malleable. Copper is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity. 
   Nickel / Nickel-Based Alloy       Nickel is a metallic element and a component in many alloys. Nickel levels vary by application.  
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical-resistant and corrosion-resistant. It can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon as an essential alloying constituent in an amount up to approximately 1.7 percent. Steel is malleable under some conditions and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Silver       Silver is a corrosion-resistant, metallic element used in alloys. 
   Titanium       Titanium is a light, strong, corrosion-resistant element that is widely used in the aerospace industry and medical applications. Alloys such as steel increase titanium's strength and oxidation resistance. 
   Specialized or Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary material.
