Trelleborg to Showcase High Integrity Sealing Solutions

TrelleborgVisitors to the OTC show will be able to view groundbreaking oil & gas technologies developed by Trelleborg’s highly-skilled specialist engineers for the oil & gas industry.

Eric Bucci, Global Technical Manager, Oil & Gas for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: “Innovations from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions continue to address the needs of the oil & gas industry by providing technically appropriate solutions coupled with industry knowledge and compliance to global standards. Our solutions drive our customers’ competitive edge and provide the highest level of safety for the industry, environment, and personnel. By using the latest software analysis, as well as material and product testing, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions provides a leadership position relative to challenging sealing demands with the most comprehensive product and service portfolio on the market.”

One of the products set to be unveiled at the four-day event, is the Medium-Duty Rotary Gate Valve, which was developed in conjunction with LB Bentley. LB Bentley specialises in creating small bore subsea valves for subsea applications. The gate valve incorporates a custom version of the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Turcon Variseal MC that demonstrates pioneering stem sealing technology that reduces the risk of contamination and failure. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions engineered the seal specifically for LB Bentley’s compact and robust subsea valve and has already achieved field-proven success.

Other recent innovations from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will also be on the booth, including: The XploR range of sealing materials, an entire family of advanced elastomers especially developed for oil and gas applications, will also be shown at the conference. They all feature low compression set characteristics and were made specifically for oil and gas applications. The latest addition to the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions product portfolio for the oil & gas industry, is the Metal End Cap Sealwhich was specifically engineered for High Temperature / High Pressure (HTHP) wellhead tubing and casing hanger sealing environments. It offers the pressure and extrusion resistance of a metal-to-metal bonded component with the flexibility of an elastomer. Combining Trelleborg’s proprietary XploR Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) and sour gas-resistant elastomers with corrosion-resistant metal end caps, a customised sealing solution can be developed that meets specific oil field requirements.
