ttv-outstanding performance for any requirements


the lord of the rings

Dichtungsringe ttv Illertissen FirmaThe classic O-ring is probably one of the most commonly processed technical products there is, and is used millions of times across countless applications.

Invisible from the outside, ttv O-rings stand out thanks to their inner values. After all, O-rings from ttv are made in compliance with current standard DIN 3601-1 and meet the most stringent quality standards.

The O-rings are predominantly made from elastomer materials with different compositions which are often customer-specific. Static seals are used in stationary machine components, whereas dynamic seals are used in rotating components.

Compression and extension
When a sealing ring is installed, it should not be compressed by more than 4% in order to prevent distortion in the groove. The extension of the inner diameter should not exceed 5% when installed. Otherwise, there could be a disproportionate reduction in the cross-section. A 1% extension of the inner diameter brings about a reduction in cord thickness of approx. 0.5%. Compression Compression refers to any percentage of the cord thickness d2 by which the O-ring is compressed when installed. There is therefore a direct correlation between the compression and the groove depth. With the same compression percentage, the deformation forces increase as the cord thickness d2 increases. To compensate for this, the compression percentage is reduced as the crosssection diameter increases.
