The Natural Gas Processing industry is challenged with sealing failures that are caused by the extreme cold temperatures found in compressing and liquefying natural gas.
Given our decades of experience in delivering innovative PEEK thermoplastic solutions for the Energy industry, Victrex understands the need for reliability and efficiency in harsh environments. VICTREX CT™ 100 polymer is an alternative to fluoropolymers and has been tailor-made for performance in cryogenic environments (-196°C). Its benefits include:
Up to 2.5x more reliable seal due to improved thermal conductivity
Up to 60% greater sealing load capacity because of a higher compressive strength
Up to 25% less load required to seal due to a lower compressive modulus
Let's discuss other performance benefits such as resilience across a broad temperature range, wear resistance and cost savings via lower force actuation elements.
