The O-ring is used to prevent the leakage of vapors from Breathing Circuit Gas (BCG) in an anesthesia delivery machine. A common cause of vapor leakage is an absent or damaged O-ring. It is the most common type of seal used in a wide range of static or dynamic applications. It is seated in a groove and it is compressed between two or more parts to create an excellent seal. It is generally made of rubber due to which it returns to its original shape upon compression. The O-ring is made of Fluorocarbon Rubber (FKM) which acts as an excellent leak barrier in medical equipment. FKM is one of the most versatile and widely used sealing materials. Viton® is a brand of Fluoroelastomer (FKM) rubber, a synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer commonly used in O-rings.
