3 Key Factors For Spring-Energized PTFE Seals as First Choice in Oil & Gas Industry

Posted On May 13, 2015


Design and Selection of Appropriate Oil & Gas Seals:

As competition for natural resources increases, petrochemical companies have begun to look to new locations that pose new challenges – from arctic operations with low ambient temperatures to subsea equipment with high pressures and extreme temperatures.

In addition, companies face higher demands for safety, reliability, and environmentally-friendly designs and processes.  There is also the challenge of reducing the footprint of structures and equipment for exploration and production of oil and gas.  All of these factors combined have driven up the costs involved in exploration and production, and made the design of oil and gas systems far more complex. 

The design and selection of appropriate seals is key to many of these issues...

Bear the Wear and Tear with Versatile, Durable Plastic Flange Bushing

Posted On October 01, 2013

The Sacramento Bee published an industry news update on its site regarding the bearings industry in America. Things are looking good as the country's numerous industrial sectors are all in need of the vital components that this field provides. The article points out that the market has a lot more room to expand.

Ball, roller, and plain bearing demand in the US is forecast to increase 4.4 percent per year to $12.9 billion in 2017. This will be a notable improvement from the growth registered during the 2007 to 2012 period. Market advances will be supported by improved conditions in motor vehicle manufacturing, the largest market for bearings. The trend toward "insourcing" US durable goods manufacturing will create opportunities in a variety of markets.

Manufacturers of Non-Hazardous Polymer Seals Say EPA wants to Phase Out PFOA by 2015

Posted On September 15, 2013

Some Teflon manufacturers have announced that they will be phasing out non-stick coatings on pans and other cookware by 2015 or earlier, reports Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss of E-The Environmental Magazine. The decision was made after these manufacturers received reports of serious health effects that resulted from exposing Teflon to high heat. High heat exposure releases a constituent chemical known as PFOA in gas form.

How an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) Can Sustain Quality of Production and Operations?

Posted On July 23, 2013

Intense competition makes it imperative for industries to arrange the best of material and equipment. Any room for maneuverability is just not there. If they move their stance a bit, they will only create space for competition. Pressure for sustenance of quality is more acute if you are an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in sectors like energy where investments are huge and businesses are eager to break even.
