Working in partnership with Parker Hannifin Seals, Ceetak offer a variety of seals manufactured in a range of compounds that have been NORSOK M-710 approved and specifically designed for the Oil and Gas Industry.
The intent of NORSOK M-710 standard and qualification process is to assure that non-metallic sealing material manufacturers have sufficient understanding and experience with the applicable materials to provide them with acceptable performance characteristics in the specified environment.
The standard defines the requirements for critical sealing for permanent subsea use including:
• Well Completion
• “Christmas” Trees
• Control systems & Valves
The testing was conducted by Element (formally Merl Ltd, a leading independent UK laboratory) and the technical requirements for the testing of the compounds was divided into 2 sections; the effects of sour gas ageing and rapid gas decompression (explosive decompression).
Positive results passed a total of 24 compounds in the following groups of elastomeric and thermoplastic materials:
• Nitrile (NBR)
• Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR)
• Carboxylated Nitrile (XNBR)
• Fluorocarbons (FKM/FFKM)
• Polyetherketones (PEEK)
• Polytetrafluoroethylenes (PTFE)
These compounds are available for manufacture in a range of different products and seal types.
