Why are PEEK polymers ideal for the energy industry?
Some of the most challenging situations exist in the oil and gas sector. To deliver the performance and dependability required, special materials are needed. PEEK is one of the materials that performs admirably, so please take a closer look at some of the diverse uses for PEEK in the oil and gas industry.
Additionally, logging equipment, surface pumps, submersible pumps, and reciprocating compressors all contain PEEK components. As an illustration, PEEK would be used for the piston rings, motor end plates, rider bands, and rod packing in reciprocating compressors. Labyrinth seals made of PEEK are also frequently used, as was previously mentioned.
PEEK is also utilized in cables, wireline, wire, and tubes. Another common use for PEEK is in insulating components. It is also very effective for electrical connectors in down holes.
The choice of PEEK for so many petrochemical applications is justified (even deepwater drilling and unconventional oil and gas operations). PEEK is extremely resistant to chemicals. One of the few polymers that can withstand exposure to environments with sour gas is this one. Both its specific stiffness and strength are extremely high. This means that components lighter than steel or titanium can still achieve excellent strength and stiffness.
Furthermore, PEEK itself has negligible adverse effects on the environment. This covers its development, use, and disposal at the end of its useful life. You can solve many of the issues faced in the oil and gas industry by combining low friction, extreme temperature performance, and excellent wear properties.
