Sealing Solutions for Oilfield Equipment (OFE)
Precision Polymer Engineering is your chosen Baker Hughes strategic supplier of elastomer seals for the Oilfield Equipment sector (OFE) including Subsea production and drilling systems, flexible pipeline systems and surface pressure control systems.
For over 10 years, we have worked alongside multiple companies that now form Baker Hughes and can offer a proven track record in supplying ultra-reliable elastomer seals for equipment like subsea trees, manifolds, blowout preventers (BOPs), flexible risers and advanced control systems.
- 24-hour technical support when and wherever you need it. From a phone call to a face-to-face meeting, we are here to provide you with the best in class technical support.
- Time saved sourcing seals for your project, with dedicated elastomer team here to advise you on which material and seal geometry will match your project requirements.
- Reduce cost of ownership through purchasing high quality, advanced elastomers seals that last longer in application, and minimise the risk of equipment downtime and maintenance intervals.
- Elastomer materials are approved to Baker Hughes specifications as well as being tested to the oil & gas industry standards, so you can feel confident in our products safety and manufacturing quality.
Together, we are focused on significantly lowering the total cost of ownership through bypassing conventional offerings and delivering innovative sealing solutions that stand the test of time.
With no two projects alike, we aim to support you with our in-depth understanding of how different elastomer materials behave in offshore environments. We will leverage our skills in FEA simulation technology, CAD design, advanced laboratory testing and the latest in manufacturing techniques, to provide you with the highest quality sealing components.

OFE Sealing Products
O-Rings and Packers are the two most common sealing products supplied to the Baker Hughes Oilfield Services sector. However, we can mould infinite seal geometries, with profiles and sizes to suit your given oil & gas application.
Our custom-engineered OFS seals are manufactured to fit the exact requirements of your hardware, protecting against explosive decompression (ED), sour gas (H2S) and the aggressive chemicals associated with oilfield media. This includes chemicals used to aid extraction of produced fluids through extension processes.
From HNBR to FFKM material grades, our innovative range of elastomer materials improve seal performance and reliability, with service life expectancy in excess of 25 years – even in the temperature and pressure extremes associated with upstream operations.
Our elastomer materials have been specially developed to deliver superior sealing solutions for the Oilfield Services sector. Many of Precision Polymer Engineering's EnDura®, Perlast® and Perlast ICE® elastomer material grades have been tested to international standards such as NORSOK, TOTAL, NACE, ISO 10423, API 6A/6D and ISO 23936-2.

Seals for Oilfield Equipment
Below is a selection of the most common products we supply to the Baker Hughes Oilfield Equipment sector. Click on a specific product to find out further information.
A double acting static seal designed for use as casing and tubing hanger seals in wellheads. Larger cross section than a Spring Seal and the recess in the seal back controls the radial compression on the seal by allowing it to deflect more.
Metal End Cap Seals
Designed for high pressure casing and tubing applications, our metal end cap seals are custom engineered elastomer-to-metal seals that provide maximum extrusion resistance in wellhead sealing environments. Corrosion resistant, chemically-bonded metal
Spring Seals (S-seals)
A double acting static seal, comprising of a high modulus elastomer and two integrated anti-extrusion springs. Also known as S-seals and all-in-one T-seals.
Custom Rubber Seals
PPE designs and manufactures custom molded rubber parts and bespoke engineered components in infinite shapes and profiles to meet any sealing requirements.
