Future exploration and recovery of hydrocarbons will become ever more difficult. This will result in even higher temperatures, pressures and more aggressive fluids used in the extraction and refining processes. It is therefore imperative for the oil and gas industry to source the most durable and reliable oil and gas sealing solutions to execute these types of high-stake applications. This is where TRP Polymer Solutions can give you that extra edge.
Our TRPlast™ Perfluoroelastomer FFKM is the ideal material for oil and gas seals destined for the most severe downhole conditions. With leading chemical resistance to sour gas and other fluids, in combination with Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) resistance, TRPlast™ perfluoroelastomer is our material of choice. We use it to produce exceptional oil resistant ‘O’ rings and RGD resistant rubber seals for the oil and gas storage industry.
Oil and gas seals are typically used in harsh working environments, including oil exploration, extraction and refining. They can also be found in the petrochemical, gas transmission and chemical processing industries. There are numerous sealing challenges faced by the Oil and Gas industry on a daily basis. These apply to both critical processes and components.
Oil and gas sealing solutions must therefore comply with various national and international approvals – notably Norsok M-710 – to ensure operator safety, equipment reliability and minimal costly downtime. TRP Polymer Solutions has many years of experience producing high-quality oil resistant ‘O’ rings for the Oil and Gas industry, having worked closely with numerous industry exponents to develop high-performance sealing solutions.
We are experts at developing specialist oil resistant ‘O’ rings and RGD resistant rubber seals for the oil and gas storage industry. Our high-performance oil resistant rubber ‘O’ rings and other custom oil and gas sealing solutions are designed to perform exceptionally well in the harsh environments associated with oil exploration and extraction. All of our oil and gas seals are also designed to comply with all the necessary safety approvals.
Our TRPlast™ ED105 FFKM material is the ideal choice for oil resistant ‘O’ rings, quad rings, t-Seal, backup rings, plug packers, valve stem packers, rotating equipment and sampling apparatus. In addition, we can also supply grades with full Norsok M-710 approval, either as custom moulded parts or high-performance oil resistant rubber ‘O’ rings. TRP Polymer Solutions also offers a range of RGD (AED) materials – certified to Norsok M-710 – available in HNBR seals, AFLAS seals, FKM and FFKM seals.
