Consumable Exploration & Production Parts
Pistons, Valves, RCDs, Seals
Since its founding in 1961, Whitefield Plastics has provided high-performance consumable parts for the energy exploration and production sector. The many years of experience has resulted in the ability to provide high performance parts that exceed customers expectations for durability, quality, and economic value.
Piston and Valves
Whitefield Plastics introduced the first bonded on steel dual durometer mud pump piston in the mid-1980s. Over the intervening 30+ years, there has been continuous improvement in chemistry, processes, and design, which has resulted in the ability to produce pistons ranging from the traditional dual durometer piston to single durometer high-temperature high-pressure pistons. Recent improvements include new piston geometry and the integration of high abrasion materials into blunt nose pistons.
The same material improvements that have been successfully incorporated into pistons are now being applied to valves. There have been substantial performance increases by addressing abrasion, cut, hysteresis, high temperatures, and aggressive mud chemistry issues.
Rotating Control Devices and Seals
As the drilling environment has become increasingly hostile from abrasion, heat, pressure, and chemistry, Whitefield Plastics has responded with materials and technology that have resulted in greatly improved service life for these highly stressed parts. In addition, there has been a continuous investment in the latest processing equipment and custom test cells to guarantee the highest level of quality and performance.
