frequently asked questions

How tight should an O-ring be?

To provide an effective seal, the O-ring's inside diameter (I.D.) must be smaller than the piston groove diameter, so that the O-ring is slightly stretched, fitting snugly in the groove. This stretch should be between 1%-5% with 2% as the ideal in most applications. A stretch greater than 5% is not recommended.

What is a flexible gasket?

A flexible gasket is a tanged steel reinforced graphite laminate with sheet material of graphite foil layers mechanically bonded to a 0.1 mm (0.004″) thick 316 stainless steel tanged core. This enhances the mechanical strength of the graphite foil.
