Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (Quadrant EPP), leading global supplier of high-performance thermoplastic materials, visits the 46th Turbomachinery & 33rd International Pump Users Symposia (TPS 2017) this December to showcase the latest innovations in advanced engineering grade plastics, polymers, and composites for global Petrochemical challenges. TPS 2017 is the premier conference for Turbomachinery and Pump professionals and will draw over 5,000 attendees.
In industries that call for extreme temperatures, loads, and chemicals (including Oil & Gas; Chemical/Petrochemical; Power; Manufacturing; Mining/Metals; Water; Industrial Gas; and Refining), thermoplastic solutions can improve efficiency and reduce mean time between repair.
Quadrant is the global leader in providing polymer materials to the compressor and pump market, supplying stock shapes as well as finished part solutions. Our solutions for upstream, midstream, and downstream processes provide efficiency through tighter tolerances and lower wear materials; reduce weight and power requirements through the switch from metal to plastic; and reduce VOC emissions through superior seal elements leading to fewer leaks.
Combined with reduced friction and superior coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CLTE), Quadrant thermoplastic materials can increase equipment lifetime as well as cut down on lost production time due to repairs. Our materials comply with many industry specifications—including NORSOK, ISO, ANSI, ACME, API, and NACE—delivering reliability, safety, and efficiency.
Selected products and applications of interest to TPS 2017 attendees include:
- Duratron® PAI – Testing has shown that Quadrant’s Duratron® seals virtually eliminate the tooth deformation and mating shaft damage that is common with metal and alloy seals.
- Fluorosint® PTFE
- Ketron® PEEK
- Techtron® PPS
- TIVAR® UHMW-PE
- Nylatron® NSM
- Kyron® MAX
Inspired by the challenges faced by design engineers, Quadrant continues to meet and exceed end-user demands for performance and efficiency gains with engineered polymers. Our global technical service teams support customers around…
