When designing your equipment, choosing the right connectivity solutions with the right type of sealing early in the process is critical for the commercial success and durability of your product. So make informed decisions during your connectivity design project: guaranteeing extreme sealing allows you to maximize reliability and reduce risks.
Sealing is a complex science, involving physical aspects such as mechanical design, materials & surface science and fluid behavior.
There are three main sealing levels and solutions:
- Environmental sealing, for equipment used outdoors and exposed to rain, dust or other aggressors for a limited time and limited pressure
- Hermetic sealing, for vacuum applications, pressurized vessels or equipment used underwater, exposed for a longer time
- High pressure sealing, for applications exposed to high pressure for extended periods
