Rubber for the Oil, Gas & Renewable Industry
Ever since the UK offshore energy industry emerged from the oil crisis of the 1970’s, Walker Rubber has supported this constantly changing industry supplying mouldings, extrusions, gaskets and seals to customers throughout the UK and beyond. Materials designed to withstand the harshest environments and our legendary service and response times are highly valued attributes appreciated by our loyal customers in this sector.
Extrusions for Oil, Gas & Renewables
The Oil, Gas & Renewable industries are often at the forefront of creativity and innovation. Our production capacity and capabilities allow us to manufacture and supply a wide range of replacement parts or develop new components for innovative projects in the following energy markets: Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Petrochemical and most notably Renewables.
Renewable energy applications use rubber gaskets to protect components from various contaminants including dirt, dust, moisture and humidity. The performance and wear rate of components and parts unique to this industry is vital to the security of the supply of energy and fuels. Rubber components that are subjected to prolonged sun exposure and solar radiation, gale force gusts of wind or high temperatures from geothermal heat pumps often protecting sensitive electronic components, must be highly effectively for optimal performance. The severity of these extreme environments makes the selection of the right material and precise manufacturing processes essential to the long-term performance of the whole system.
Walker Rubber understands the importance of choosing the right material and method of manufacture. Given our wealth of experience in this field, we are well placed to help you select the most fitting material and manufacturing method for your application.
