Detailed below are some application stories based on recent projects.
Three North Sea floating platforms faced closure due to gas leaks on reciprocating compressors. Could PPE keep the platforms open with the correct choice of sealing material and geometry?
A blue chip oil and gas company urgently required O-rings, PTFE ball seats and PEEK wear seats for high temperature valves on an offshore platform.
A global leader in pharmaceutical research and manufacture undertook a review of sealing on equipment using on a single Topicals filling and packaging line. PPE consulted on this review, proposing several operational improvements.
Concerned about the risk of rubber seal contamination, a dairy in Germany has replaced its NBR elastomer seals in stainless steel pipework connections with Detectaseal® metal detectable seals.
Customers experiencing low seal lifetimes with EPDM materials on discharge ball valves are finding the chemical resistance of Perlast® offers an excellent alternative.
A new approach to the design of piston seals in a food process application resulted in a large improvement in the reliability of the component, and the efficiency of the process line.
HSE closure of three platforms due to gas leaks caused by OEM seal failure averted by switching to PPE's EnDura L-seals.
Failed cord seal on gas platform is replaced with EnDura O-ring saving £1000s in lost production and increasing seal life performance.
Hydraulic RED is first to achieve ISO14310 V1 with EnDura O-ring seals
Oil leak in hose assembly leads to concerns about OEM seal spec. O-rings replaced and standardized with EnDura V91A for all valves on topside.
