Rubber and Plastic Compound Development
The Alpine team will work with you to determine the chemical & physical properties of your material. We will then work with you to develop a plan that will allow you to optimize your material: increase performance, reduce cost, meet or exceed specifications, and give your company the solutions you need to win in the marketplace.
Alpine can assist with the validation of
FEA and seal designs through
Example #1 - A seal gland on a large
wellhead tree can be recreated with a
small test fixture so that the seal system
can be validated at a variety of
temperatures and pressures. One can
then confidently send that seal system
to the customer for full scale
Example #2 – Packer elements can be
set and pressure tested using a two
foot long test fixture to identify the
setting force, and the pressure holding performance envelope as a function of temperature. One can then confidently send that packer element stack to the customer for full scale qualification.
