Working with OEM equipment manufacturers, distributors and MRO organisations throughout the Oil & Gas industry, we supply a range of specially developed products such as bespoke seals in low-temperature materials such as Epichlorhydrin, HNBR and Fluorosilicon; HVP-flapper seals and slipper seals; Viton®, Aflas®, and silicone rubber O rings.
Working in conjunction with our rubber compounding experts, we have materials suitable for NORSOK product compliance, with other grades suitable for downhole “swelling rubber” applications, whether water swellable or oil swellable. This novel technology uses the attributes of specially compounded swellable elastomers to create products such as swellable packers for down hole operations where the short lifespan of a given well means that more traditional sealing methods are not cost effective.
In partnership with our customers we help to design and manufacture custom designed parts and materials specific to particular applications in the oil and gas industries.
We currently supply ranges of rubber valve seals to a number of customers, and the inside diameter requirements of such seals can range from 3” to 84”.
The larger items are manufactured by moulding sections of profiled seal and then vulcanising in a specially developed jig in order to provide the correct curvature, or taking an extruded profile and vulcanising a joint to create a continuous rubber seal.
Products include rubber to steel bonded joints, moulded end caps, sheave wheels machined from engineering plastic and large rubber clamp pads with internal steel reinforcement. Many of these products are manufactured in materials such as bisphenol and peroxide cured FKM Fluorocarbon grades such as Viton®, FEPM grades such as Aflas® and HNBR , which can withstand the rigours of down hole operations such as explosive decompression (also known as RGD or ED) and exposure to a huge variety of aggressive chemicals and gases.
Polyurethane rubber parts supplied into the oil and gas industry include moulded pigs for flushing pipelines, foam ball ends and fenders. As seal manufacturers we also machine seals to specification or for prototyping and testing, not only in rubber materials such as Silicone, Viton and Nitrile, but also in engineering plastics such as Polyurethane, PEEK, virgin and filled PTFE, modified TFP PTFE, Ekonol and Rulon for example.
Products that are currently in demand within the industry include Slipper seals, Flapper seals, Vee packings, cable packers, wiper seals, piston rings and bypass check valves.
