High-Performance Polymers for the Oil and Gas Industry
The oil and gas industry relies on numerous essential components that serve different purposes, such as preventing leaks, decreasing friction, and offering maintenance and durability. These components are constructed from diverse materials and utilized in various applications. BARplast LLC specializes in High-Performance Polymers which meet these requirements.
AURUM™ Thermoplastic Polyimide from Mitsui Chemicals, which BARplast is a distributor, can also be used as dry bearings in equipment such as pumps and compressors to reduce friction and improve efficiency and as connectors to connect electrical cables and sensors. It is also used for pipeline coating; this helps protect against any damage by increasing the longevity of the pipeline.
PEEK can be used in Electrical components like cable insulation, connectors and insulators because PEEK's ability to withstand high temperatures of about 240°C (464°F) makes it suitable for use.
Our Plavis N & S Series Thermosetting Polyimide Sheets and Rods are applied as Washers and sealings, used in pipe connections and valves to prevent leaks and ensure a secure closure. Meldin® 7000 Series Thermosetting Polyimide from Saint-Gobain, with its high-temperature resistance from 600 °F (315 °C) and low wear rate, can withstand thermal shock in addition to its dimensional stability and its tensile strength ranging from 72.4 MPa (10,500 psi) to 86.2 MPa (12,500 psi) is used in the oil and gas industry for Pump Parts such as impellers, wear rings, and shaft seals.
Piston rings play a crucial role in engines and compressors by creating a seal between the piston and cylinder wall, which helps to avoid leaks and withstand pressure. To strengthen the seals and block seal material from being forced out under intense pressure, backup rings are frequently used along with them.
Gears transfer power and enable movement in various equipment, including compressors and pumps. To ensure structural stability and support in diverse applications within the oil and gas industry, screws, nuts, and bolts are used for securing components Simultaneously.
BARplast has High-Performance Polymers that cater to the specific requirements of the Oil and Gas industry.
