High performance seals

Published:  23 August, 2016

Dichtomatik, an approved supplier for the DuPont range of high performance O-ring seals and gaskets, has announced it has extended its stock range of sealing components, including specifically designed items for the high pressure / high temperature (HPHT) conditions as encountered in the demanding oil and gas production and development environments. High performance seals such as Viton fluoroelastomers have been used in extraction, refining and upgrading industries for over five decades.

The company says typical installations have successfully solved critical sealing problems where elastomers such as nitrile or EPDM have failed to provide an effective long-term sealing performance. Later developments have seen the introduction of DuPont Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts which can withstand operating conditions involving attack from a range in excess of 1800 chemicals, solvents and plasmas, even where incorporating working conditions up to 327°C (620°F) are utilised.

Dichtomatik says Viton outlasts nitrile rubber and other general-purpose elastomers and is ISO 9000 registered worldwide and the ability of this product to withstand both high heat and low temperatures as well as attack from aggressive fuels and chemicals, makes it an ideal medium for the production of protective coatings as well as O-rings, together with gaskets in a wide variety of custom shapes and sizes. The company says this proven versatility ensures that user customers can utilise longer maintenance intervals for production processes, ensuring budget reductions particularly for down-hole applications which can involve particularly hard access conditions.
