Such a harsh environment requires a range of materials that can withstand extremely high working temperatures, brine solutions, chemicals and oil residue.
We have a wide range of fluoropolymer products that are widely used in oil and gas applications for fluid delivery (umbilicals), encapsulation, temperature and level detection as well as battery packs designed for harsh environments.
The oil and gas industry benefits our lives in many ways, supplying energy, heating homes, and fueling transport. Yet in the oil and gas industry, the combination of powerful equipment, chemicals and processes creates an extremely hazardous environment – danger is almost always present.
These harsh environments require rigorous safety measures and a range of materials that can withstand extremely high working temperatures, brine solutions, chemicals and oil residue. Fortunately, Adtech’s fluoroplastic materials do just that.
We encapsulated in FEP a free-issue stirring paddle. Used for off-shore field development work, the bespoke fluoroplastic component needed to follow tight tolerances and as such, proved challenging.
For this one-off project, we quickly supplied a proto-type for testing and once this proved successful, produced the small quantities required.
