Gland Design, Elastomeric O-Ring Seals, General Considerations
This document establishes general gland design criteria for static and dynamic O-ring seal applications used in fluid systems and at fluid pressures common to the aerospace industry. Detailed discussion of design criteria and tables of recommended gland dimensions are contained in the documents listed in Table 1. SI unit conversions for U.S. customary units have been provided for reference purposes.
Figures 1 and 2 redrawn for better clarity, Reference to ARP1235, ARP1236, and ARP1237 deleted as documents never produced, table 2 redrawn to remove metric dimensions, section added to show reference documents and MIL-H-5606 corrected to MIL-PRF-5606.
