The function of a static seal is to prevent fluid bypass between
mating surfaces in which there is little or no relative motion when
exposed to zero, low, or high pressures. There are various profiles
used in industry with the o-ring being the most common, while custom
profiles can be used based upon equipment and operating conditions.
proper seal profile used in combination with a high performance
material has proven to create a very effective static sealing solution.
