Precision Polymer Engineering (PPE), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance moulded elastomer seals will be delivering a series of seminars at the OMC (Offshore Mediterranean Conference) in Ravenna, Italy, between 20th and 22nd March alongside key Italian specialist sealing distributor Fridle Sistemi di Tenuta.

PPE and Fridle are also jointly exhibiting at the show, showcasing their range of specialist O-Rings and sealing solutions for the offshore oil and gas Industry, focussing on key PPE brands Perlast and Endura.

The three seminar sessions will take place on Wednesday 20th March between 10am and 1pm in room “Sala Verde” (1st floor Hall 6) and will cover topics including;

  • Elastomer seals in high concentration sour gas (H2S) – what you should know,
  • Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) tests for offshore sealing: the good, the bad and the just plain inappropriate,
  • Low temperature elastomers for the oil and gas industry – how low can you go?

These seminars will aim to address the key sealing issues affecting the oil and gas industry in an ever more demanding marketplace. Places at the seminars are free to attend but are limited to only 40 delegates and both PPE and Fridle are anticipating strong demand for the tickets. 

PPE has experienced significant growth in recent years providing specialist seals for the oil and gas industry and attendance at OMC is viewed as an excellent opportunity to meet new and existing customers to enable them to discuss technical issues surrounding effective sealing technologies. PPE are especially interested in talking to valve manufactures and manufacturers of other specialist flow control equipment that supply the oil and gas industry. Italy is a hotbed of specialist valve manufactures and PPE has identified this as a significant opportunity to penetrate the European manufacturing market further. 

Paul Gillyon, Managing Director, PPE said “we have a number of excellent partner distributors around the world who do a superb job of communicating our value proposition and in a market as important to us as Italy, we are delighted to work together with Fridle on joint promotional projects. We expect demand for the seminars to be very strong, in 2011 there was standing room only so we are advising that people pre-register for these sessions to avoid disappointment.”
