This document establishes standard gland design criteria and dimensions for dynamic radial O-ring seal applications and provides recommendations for modifying these glands in special applications. There are no provisions in this document for anti-extrusion devices.
SI unit conversions for U.S. customary units have been provided for reference purposes.
The criteria set forth here are similar to but not identical with those in MIL-G-5514. This document is not intended to replace MIL-G-5514 for hydraulic applications.
The purpose of this document is to provide the aerospace industry with standardized dimensional criteria for dynamic radial elastomeric O-ring seal glands. It is intended for use in conjunction with ARP1231, "Gland Design, Elastomeric O-Ring Seals, General Considerations."
