3 Reasons You Should Consider PEEK for High Pressure Polymer Seals

Posted On April 15, 2016


Polyetheretherketone PEEK

There are many applications that require high-pressure seals, such as down-hole safety valves, water jet intensifiers, and oil and gas valvesPEEK, short for polyetheretherketone, is a high performance engineering polymer that’s a common choice for high pressure seals.  Let’s see why …

Tribological Properties for PEEK: Bushing and Bearing Applications

Posted On February 18, 2016

PEEK Increasingly Popular

Polymer bushings have found widespread acceptance because they are typically low friction, light weight, relatively inexpensive, have an extended service life, and can be self-lubricating.  Most polymer bearings and bushings are made from a form of PEEK, PTFE, Nylon, or UHMW PE PEEK is becoming increasingly popular because it offers a good balance of chemical, heat, and wear resistance; and is, versatile when it comes to manufacturing.

Labyrinth Seal for a Reciprocating Compressor Selection Process: Four Key Thermal Properties

Posted On November 27, 2015


Torlon and PEEK Polymer Labyrinth Seals Choice?

When selecting the material for a labyrinth seal to be used in a reciprocating compressor, thermal properties can be a major concern.  Since plastics behave differently from metals, there are certain thermal properties that you need to consider when using a thermoplastic labyrinth seal.  In this article, we are going to look at four key thermal properties you need to investigate, focusing on two of the most common choices for polymer labyrinth seals:  Torlon and PEEK.

Take a PEEK: Oil and Gas Industry New Sources

Posted On September 28, 2015


PEEK Polymer in Oil and Gas

As stated in the previous post Environmental Impact of PEEK in Oil & Gas in the "Take a Peek" series, the oil and gas industry of today is focusing on three main challenges:

  • minimizing environmental impact,
  • finding new sources for depleting oil and gas resources, and
  • maximizing efficiency.  

This second post in the series looks at how PEEK (polyether ether ketone) contributes to the search for new sources of oil and gas.

Take a Peek: Environmental Impact of PEEK in Oil & Gas

Posted On September 23, 2015


PEEK (polyether ether ketone) Contribution

There are three major priorities in the oil and gas industry today:

  1. minimizing environmental impact,
  2. finding new sources for depleting oil and gas resources, and
  3. maximizing efficiency. 

This is the first in a series of three articles discussing how PEEK (polyether ether ketone) contributes to meeting the modern goals of the oil and gas industry.  In this article, we will focus on how PEEK can be used to minimize the environmental impact.
