Do you need high-quality oil seals in a range of imperial and metric sizes? Simply Bearings stocks a comprehensive range of O rings designed to make a tight seal whatever the application. These doughnut-shaped rings are designed to prevent the passage of fluid or air and are used in anything from underwater cameras and scuba gear to a range of static and dynamic mechanical applications.
O rings are one of the most common oil seals used in modern machinery. These loops of elastomer rubber are designed to fit seamlessly into a groove and are then compressed to form a seal at the interface between the two parts. Affordable, reliable, easy to manufacture and a snap to use, they can be used in hydraulic pistons and hydraulic shaft applications. They are suitable for use in the automotive industry, in heavy plant and agricultural machinery, and in marine applications.
Straightforward in design and use, O rings can be specified in a wide range of materials that must be matched to the application to provide the best fluid compatibility. In this way, your oil seals can be expected to withstand extreme temperatures and operating environments. Choose the right seals for your application and they will deliver long life and trouble-free use.
Simply Bearings makes it as simple as possible for you to select the right seals. We also provide the lubricants required to ease assembly and ensure your items are not damaged during this phase. Our rubber O rings are manufactured from Viton and Nitrile rubber, each with their own distinct qualities.
Viton O rings are manufactured from fluoropolymer elastomer and rubber and are better able to withstand high temperatures while maintaining decent mechanical properties. They are also resistant to degradation from a wide range of fluids, including most mineral acids, oils, lubricants and fuels. This type of seal is commonly used in automotive and aerospace applications and in the oil and gas industry.
Nitrile rubber produces general purpose seals that are designed to withstand tearing and abrasions. They can cope with a wide range of operating temperatures; in addition, seals made from this type of rubber have good wear resistance and good short-term resilience. Suitable for use with some hydraulic fluids, petroleum oils and water, these seals are commonly used in gearboxes, engines and pumping applications.
Our handy chemical resistance table enables you to access our searchable database so that you can find the right seal for your application. We can supply O rings for every budget, from affordable alternatives to reputable brand names such as INA, FAG and SKF.
We also stock rubber O rings as part of our oil seal kits. These are a handy way to purchase a range of metric and imperial sizes so that you will always have the right O ring at your fingertips or be able to create a custom spliced O ring for trickier applications. We also supply a range of V ring seals for agricultural machinery and heavy plant, and Nilos rings that can be used to seal an outer roller bearing ring.
