Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

(OP)
Is there a difference between an internal o-ring groove/gland sealing and external o-ring groove/gland sealing?
Whether from performance or installation wise? or any other.

RE: Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

Reference the Parker Oring Handbook.

RE: Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

(OP)
I did a search in the handbook, but didn't find what I'm looking for.
can you refer to the section or page?

RE: Difference between an internal and external o-ring groove

Look at section 4, static seals.
An internal or female gland tends to put a slight compression fit to the oring OD to keep it in place during assembly.
An external or male gland tends to slightly stretch the oring ID to keep it in place during assembly.
