Oil and Gas Industry
The oil and gas sector operates in a harsh and challenging environment. Thus, rubber components are an essential part of the industry. These components are important for sealing and gasket application in equipment, valves, and pipelines. It also provides reliable barrier against leakage of crude oil, natural gas, and other hazardous fluids. You can assure that it contributes in environmental safety and preventing spills that may lead to devastating results.
Rubber parts also offer exceptional resistance against chemicals, temperatures, and abrasions. They are used as protective linings for tanks, pipes, and equipment that come into contact with corrosive substances. Therefore, equipment and machines in this industry have prolonged service life. This significantly reduce downtime and maintenance cost.
Requirements of Oil and Gas Industry
Working in the oil and gas industry means being exposed to a tough and demanding environment. Therefore, rubber materials should meet the strict requirements including:
- High-pressure resistance
- Corrosion resistance
- Chemical stability
- Vibration resistance
- Stability under pressure
- Thermal resistance
Rubber Component Characteristics Required in the Oil and Gas Industry
Abrasion Resistance – This is needed so the machine can withstand wear and tear.
Chemical Resistance – It assures reliability even when the machine comes in extended or incidental contact with harsh chemicals.
Tensile Strength – Rubber parts should have high tensile strength to resist stretching.
Corrosion Resistance – When rubber components are resistant to corrosion, they can withstand corrosive substances such as hydrogen sulfide gases.
Tear Strength – This property helps the rubber parts to resist cutting and tearing.
High-Pressure Resistance – The rubber parts should have high resistance to pressure during down-hole installations, deep well drilling, and more applications.
