In an oscillating o-ring application, the shaft moves in an arc within the gland and in contact with the I.D. of the seal. Because there is a tendency for the shaft to twist, self-lubricated o-rings with a hardness of 80 to 90 durometer are most often employed. Caution should be used, however, with graphite-containing compounds as they tend to pit stainless steel alloys.
