Get a Proper Seal with Quality Profile Rings

In the industry world, there are many different parts and equipment that each play a vital role in the operation of a machine. Some parts are very different from each other, but many are quite similar in terms of the shape, such as sealing rings or O-rings. One of the many variations of O-rings is the profile ring.


What Is a Profile Ring?

Profile rings are generally small, circular rings made of various materials. Some of these include:

  • PEEK
  • Carbon PEEK
  • MT
  • Nylon

These thermoplastic rings are made using lathes, mills and only with the latest in technology. Because of the method in which they are created, profile rings are able to work exceptionally well, even into extremely high temperatures. They perform their proper jobs in this high heat in both chemical and mechanical fashions.


What Do Profile Rings Do?

With profile rings being made to order and custom cut to any needed size, they can accomplish many different functions. Their aerodynamic design enables them to create a superior seal in many hydraulic applications, such in hydraulic presses, construction machinery, valves and many other connections that involve threaded tubing. With their innovative shape, profile rings are able to withstand intense pressure which makes them ideal in uncompromising situations. This also gives them the edge to accommodate for flaws in the machinery that they create the seal between, effectively keeping out steam and other liquids. This helps to ensure that the parts you are running will operate efficiently.


Finding the Right Profile Ring for You

Profile rings are generally made to order with the person ordering giving exact specifications. The rings are then formed in an exceedingly precise manner to ensure the perfect fit, no matter what you are using them for. Finding the size that you require can really only be done by someone with suitable knowledge and equipment experience. Having accurate and detailed measurements will get you the correct dimensions and will guarantee a flawless seal for whatever you might need.
