Sealing systems - avoid costly downtime

Effective sealing is often the difference between a safe, long-lasting, efficient operation and costly downtime. VICTREX™ PEEK has been a material of choice in this industry for 40+ years as a primary seal, back-up ring where reliability is critical. Proven 450G™ PEEK-based sealing solutions can extend the lifetime of installations and improving recovery in corrosive, HPHT environments .

Electrical connectors - greater reliability and performance

VICTREX HT™ and VICTREX ST™ polymer materials are increasingly being selected by connector OEMs to improve application performance, achieve more design freedom, and reduce downtime and system costs.

  • Higher insulation resistance than glass 
  • Insulation integrity to negate electrical leakage
  • Great impact resistance for longer service life

Electrical insulation - greater integrity and durability

As operating conditions become more extreme, with unparalleled electrical, mechanical chemical and humidity resistance properties,  energy engineers are choosing APTIV thermoplastic film as a reliable technical solution for electrical insulation. 

  • Improve safety and reliability with an electrical relative thermal index of 240°C (464°F)
  • Reduce integrity losses with excellent humidity and chemical resistance
  • Design thinner insulation that can handle a high power density

Wear ring components - less energy consumption with more uptime

Traditionally, wear ring components have been made from metallic materials such as bronze, stainless steel and cast iron, but VICTREX PEEK polymer-based composite materials can be use as a metal replacement resulting in enhance process reliability, greater energy efficiency and a consequent cost saving. 

  • Better wear resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Non-galling or seizing

MAGMA M-PIPE®

The World's First DNV GL RP F119 Qualified Thermoplastic Composite Pipes Made from VICTREX™ PEEK

Wear Component 

The use of Victrex’s APTIV™ film for the slot liner material has enabled Equipmake to improve thermal management and produce an indirect water-cooled stator in our APM 200 with the same high performance as the previous direct oil-cooled design. Equipmake will be bringing this motor to production in 2020.
