- TL;DR Summary
- Can you use radial seals on non-circular cross section (rectangle with filleted corners for instance) for high pressure applications (subsea).

Hi everyone,

I am in the process of designing a watertight enclosure for 300m deep applications and would like to explore options of using radial o-ring seals in place of face-seals due to space-savings. However, i am unable to find any information anywhere on using radial seals on non-circular cross-sections. Basically, the shape is a rectangle with LARGE radius corners.

Any inputs or ideas on where to find information on the subject would be appreciated :).

Thanks!
