Torlon® and PEEK in Action – Oil and Gas

 

PEEK components survive the HPHT conditions present in the most aggressive downhole environments.  Torlon offers unmatched strength at temperature for replacing metals for improved drill-out.
  • Glass and carbon reinforced PEEK back-up seals prevent softer elastomers from extruding under pressure
  • PEEK and PEK connector bodies isolate conductive pins in highly engineered electrical connectors
  • High strength Torlon 5030 cement flappers deliver the strength of aluminum with greater ease of drill-out
  • Drillable Torlon valve seats for downhole use.
  • Drake’s Cannonball® Frac balls made from Torlon enable more zones and faster pump-down than general purpose composites
  • Glass and carbon reinforced poppetslift buttons and valve plates for compressor valves.

TORLON FRAC-BALLS

OIL AND GAS: TORLON FRAC BALLS

Drake Plastics offers a full range of machined Torlon® frac-balls from .800″ to 4.00″ diameter under the Cannonball® trade name. Its high compressive strength, creep resistance and toughness are only a few of Torlon® impressive properties that make it an exceptional choice for frac-balls.  Drake’s precision processing means ball to ball and lot to lot consistency.  Diameter tolerances are held to within +/-.002”.

Why Torlon?

 

  • None Tougher…
    Torlon has the combination of high strength, high toughness and unmatched heat resistance meaning it out performs all competing materials
  • Faster…
    Torlon balls and darts can withstand seating at normal pumping velocities reducing cycle time without impact failures common with thermoset composites
  • 12% lower…
    Torlon has a lower specific gravity and is more easily drilled out after use than metals such as aluminum and magnesium
  • Aerospace roots…
    From subzero to 500°F, Torlon remains the toughest and strongest of all melt processable polymers
  • Chemically resistant…
    Torlon is unaffected by hydrocarbons and most wellbore fluids, including H2S. Water absorption is slow resulting in almost no dimensional or mechanical change in completion tools
