EOG – Norsok approved compounds
Ceetak Ltd offer 24 Norsok approved Parker Hannifin polymeric seal compounds
Ceetak Ltd is one of the UK’s leading elastomeric sealing solutions providers, offering standard catalogue items alongside a full bespoke design service from experienced application engineers. Working in partnership with Parker Hannifin Seals for over 30 years as their accredited UK Distributor, Ceetak can offer a wide range of materials and design support from Parker’s world class manufacturing facilities to satisfy the demanding application requirements of the Energy, Oil and Gas industry.
Parker’s complete range of special compounds for the Energy, Oil and Gas market include; Nitrile (NBR), Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR), Carboxylated Nitrile (XNBR), Fluorocarbons (FKM/FFKM), Polyetherketones (PEEK) and Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) formulations.
Following on from this, Parker’s proprietary compounds (developed from these polymer families) have been approved after passing the strict NORSOK M-710 rapid gas compression (RGD), and sour gas tests.
The NORSOK standards have been developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry to provide adequate safety and cost effectiveness for petroleum industry developments and operations.
The NORSOK M-710 standard defines the requirements for critical non-metal (polymer) sealing, seat and back-up materials for permanent subsea use, including well completion, subsea and surface trees, controls systems and valves, and also applies to topside valves in critical gas systems.
The NORSOK M-710 standard includes both rapid gas decompression (explosive decompression) testing, and the effects of sour gas (H2S) ageing on polymer materials. The results from these tests allow engineers to predict the performance of polymers over the life of the seal in challenging oilfield applications.
Ceetak’s Sales and Marketing Director, Jeff Panovic says, “The NORSOK testing was conducted by MERL Ltd – an independent test laboratory in the UK. The qualification of these materials validates Parker Hannifin’s position as a leading supplier of oilfield sealing materials, and we are pleased to be able to offer these compounds to our existing, and potential Energy, Oil and Gas customers”
