Compounds specifically formulated for oilfield applications

O-Rings

Overview

The upstream sector of the oil and gas industry poses unique challenges for sealing companies. It’s not unusual to see applications where temperatures can reach 260°C (500°F), pressures can exceed 10,000 psi, and the environment can be highly caustic. That’s why working with a sealing organization with experience in oilfield applications is crucial, as they can be extremely challenging. Our O-Ring materials are oilfield-proven and have been specifically formulated for these types of harsh environments. This includes compounds that offer resistance to temperature, extrusion, H2S, rapid gas decompression, and superheated steam. We also provide compounds that are both NORSOK M710, API 6A certified and Simriz, which are high-performance materials rated to 325°C (620°F).

Measurement 

All parts are measured on our Zeiss O-Machine and/or Keyence CMM, which utilizes optical and contact measurement technology in a comprehensive analysis. The O-Machine includes multi-sensor coordinate measuring, white light sensors for non-contact assessments and extremely accurate 3D scanners.

We follow AQL 2.5 levels 1 and 2 sample size quantities, and all molded parts are manufactured to RMA A2 tolerances. 

What comes with your orders:

  • Every order is sent with a paper or digital QC document that includes ID, OD, C/S, Height, angles, and any other dimensions your organization considers critical. 

Materials

Our rubber and plastic materials supply is diversified amongst the top compounders in North America. Each polymer has been qualified to meet typical exploration and production well conditions, including mechanical, tribological, thermal, and specific immersive properties.

What comes with your orders:

  • Every order comes with an MTR that includes a batch number, cure dates, and a set of mechanical properties.
