  • Debond Rubber Seal from Steel Oil Seal Ring (.pdf)
    Induction heating provides highly accurate placement of heat (no effect to surrounding components), faster and more efficient process and even distribution of heating
  • Ask the Expert - Installing Retaining Rings and Laminar Seal Ring Application
    Unlike salespeople, Sales Engineers are engineers first. Smalley Sales Engineers use their technical expertise to steer you in the direction of the products that will best suit your needs instead of the ones that are simply more expensive.
  • O-Ring Lubrication
    In all dynamic applications, proper lubrication and good heat dissipation are essential to long seal life and performance. In pneumatic applications, supplemental lubrication should be provided. Lubricants should be selected on the basis of the material of which the O-Ring is made and the type
  • Handbook guides O-ring design
    O-ring seal materials and how they react to the roughly 2,000 media listed in the table. Their compatibility is classified as satisfactory, fair, doubtful, and unsatisfactory. More tutorial chapters include O-ring elastomers, applications, and static
  • Accurately Predicting O-Ring Swell
    New design tools make arbitrary rules of thumb obsolete. O-ring Div. Simrit Div. of Freudenberg-NOK * Conventional seal-designs rules are obsolete. * Simrit has developed a design tool that predicts O-ring behavior in real-world applications. For more than 60 years, engineers specifying seals
  • Calculating Minimum and Maximum O-Ring Compression
    information see Section 12 Formulas in the Seal Design Guide). Full Line O-Rings MicrOrings Custom Molded Shapes Composite Seals Silicone Parts and Seals ExpresSeal Silicone Housing (Face) Seals Filter Seals EMI-Shielded O-Rings & Seals
  • Odd-Shaped Seal Stops Random Leaks
    confirmed that random seal loss or failure was the cause, engineers at Parker Hannifin 's Tube Fittings Div., Columbus, Ohio, recommended a different O-ring that would virtually eliminate the possibility of seals misaligned or popping out during assembly. Parker 's Trap-Seal, a trapezoidalshaped
  • Structural Applications
    The job of a face seal ring is to plug the gap between the housing and the rotating shaft so tightly that no liquid or gas may escape. This leakproof seal is achieved by means of a rotating sealing surface at the point of shaft entry.
  • Ask the Expert - Linear Springs and Laminar Seal Rings Requirements
    We are back with another Ask the Expert Blog entry. This week, our retaining ring, spring and snap ring experts answer a couple questions about Linear Springs and Laminar Seal Rings. If you have your own question please submit them on our Ask the Expert page!
  • Ask the Expert - Small Wave Springs and Seal Rings
    Welcome back to the Ask the Expert Blog, where our engineers answer commonly asked ring and spring design questions. This week, our experts field some questions about different uses of Smalley springs and rings. We discusses various applications for our line of retaining rings, how they can
  • Technical Innovations Regarding Housed Rotating Unions for Machine Tools
    , the well proven floating seal with Viton membrane and the seal ring from silicon carbide; besides, the absolute novelty is the two-step labyrinth. Behind all this is one main thought: The "POP-OFF" rotating union produces a minimum leakage during the switching operation, i.e. between dry run and coolant
  • Important Considerations for Selecting O-rings
    an O-ring for your application. These include: Sealing Pressure - Sealing pressure is the force exerted by compression of the seal between the mating surfaces forming the gland itself and external forces (i.e. the fluid being sealed) transmitted through the seal. A physical barrier is formed when
