WTE flange question


(Richard) #1

@Rusty-What is the purpose of the two interior O-rings? I assume they are a leak barrier in shallow depths where outside pressure is insufficient to compress the single rim O-ring.

Richard,

The face-seal O-ring on the outside only seals the end-cap to the flange. The two radial O-rings inside are needed to seal the flange with the clear acrylic tube. See the attached diagram of the enclosure.
