The oil and gas industry involves some of the harshest, most aggressive environments. It takes special materials to provide the performance and reliability that is demanded. PEEK is one of the materials that rises to the occasion, so in this blog post we are going to look at some of the many applications there are for PEEK in the world of oil and gas.

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?

PEEK (polyether ether ketone) Maximizing Efficiency:
As stated in the previous articles in this 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 third article in the series looks at how PEEK (polyether ether ketone) contributes to the continuing effort of engineers to maximize efficiency.
