Saint-Gobain Seals, Saint-Gobain Seals, a leader in designing and manufacturing polymer critical parts that protect core systems in extreme conditions, has developed a technical engineering manual that provides selection guidelines for polymer lip seals in oil and gas API 6D isolation valves for a major United States oil and gas end user customer.
Their engineering team was approached by the valve subject matter expert from the key oil company with the guidance document request as part of an effort to improve the awareness of the importance of seals as critical parts making the difference in severe service operations. Their engineering team created the technical manual with a focus on trunnion-mounted ball valves and covering the following conditions:
• Pressure: class #150 up to #2500
• Temperature: -120°C up to +200°C
• Size: up to 20”
