WHAT IS A O-RING

An O-ring is a type of mechanical seal commonly used in various industrial applications, including those in the electrical industry. It is a circular ring made of elastomeric material, typically rubber, which is designed to create a secure and tight seal between two mating surfaces or components. O-rings are widely used to prevent the leakage of fluids, gases, or other media in a broad range of applications, including pumps, valves, hydraulic systems, and electrical devices.


In industrial electrical applications, O-rings play a crucial role in providing sealing solutions to ensure the integrity and safety of electrical components. These applications often involve sensitive electronic circuitry, connectors, and housings that need to be protected from external elements, such as moisture, dust, and contaminants, to maintain optimal performance and prevent failures.


WHY VITON O-RINGS ARE DIFFERENT

Viton O-rings are distinct from traditional rubber O-rings due to their unique material composition. Viton is a fluoroelastomer brand known for its exceptional chemical resistance and temperature capabilities.

Viton O-rings guarantee strong chemical resistance: to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, and various industrial fluids. This property makes them ideal for sealing applications in environments where exposure to corrosive substances is a concern.

Viton O-rings can withstand a broad temperature range, without losing their sealing properties. This characteristic is crucial for electrical devices (ie. luminaires) that operate in diverse environments, such as those found in the automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas industries.

They offer longevity, durability, and insulation: the excellent chemical and temperature resistance of Viton O-rings contributes to their extended lifespan.


WHY SHOULD YOU PICK A MACHINE LIGHT WITH VITON O-RINGS?

Using Viton O-rings to seal the side caps of industrial machine lights offers a combination of superior chemical resistance, temperature tolerance, durability, and protection against environmental factors. These qualities ensure a secure and long-lasting seal, ultimately enhancing the reliability and performance of the machine light in demanding industrial environments.


WHERE ARE VITON O-RINGS USED IN CCEA PRODUCTS?

We decided to use these rings in products that need a particular sealing arrangement.

For example, Trackalpha PRO performs at its best in industrial machines where the conditions are very hard and has a high IP.

This feature guarantees perfect sealing from the most aggressive substances used during some production processes. They help prolong the life of the machine light, by preserving its integrity and components.
