Abstract:

Tests were conducted to determine the suitability of a Parker Ring Seal for use as a closure gasket in buoy pockets. The gasket assembly consists of an aluminum flat ring having a 24-inch I. D. and 30-12-inch O. D. with a neoprene rubber ring insert. The ring seal was installed in a mock-up buoy pocket and air tested to one atmosphere. Fire hose and water submergence tests were also performed. It was concluded that the Parker Ring Seal gasket was adequate for use in Coast Guard buoy pockets. Author
