In Response To: Re: O-Rings (SVP Neon Equipment)


Thanks for that tip. Since I use your merc traps, there seems to be about 6 of this size in my vacuum chain. Replacement solves the problem quickly, but they are pretty valuable if you buy them from the wrong place.

Some of the o-rings are in places that an old one (in my opinion) just shouldn't be re-used, especially when coated with expensive grease.

A Transco technician emailed me saying to make sure the tubulation glass is fire polished first, which you have also said to save the rubber from getting sliced when joining them together.
