PTFE Energized Seals with PEEK Back-up Ring: Match Made in Heaven for High Pressure Applications

Posted On February 05, 2016

PEEK Back Up Ring Oil & Gas:

One of the popular choices for seals for the intense, high pressure, corrosive, high temperature environments found in the oil and gas industry is a combination of a PTFE spring-energized seal with a PEEK back-up ring (BUR) installed on the downstream side of the seal gland.  Why?
