Custom Molded Rubber Products for the Oil and Gas Industry

High-performance custom molded rubber products play critical roles in oil and gas applications. Parts such as rubber valves and fabric reinforced diaphragms are often required for equipment that will be submerged deep underground. And these parts can be incredibly expensive一if not impossible一to maintain or replace.

At Micro-Tronics, we know that when it comes to such parts, “I think it’s going to work” simply won’t cut it. That’s why we’ve cultivated the expertise and capabilities to supply our oil and gas customers with parts they can count on.

Molding Top Materials for Oil and Gas Applications

Micro-Tronics has extensive experience molding elastomers that perform exceptionally well in long-term oil and gas applications. We can help you choose the best material for your design and price point. These materials include: 

  • Nitriles
  • Hydrogenated nitriles
  • Fluoroelastomers 
  • Neoprenes (occasionally)

Enhancing Our Injection Molding Services

To serve oil and gas customers effectively, a shop must have the requisite capabilities to produce high volumes of parts efficiently and consistently. Micro-Tronics recently enhanced our injection molding services, enabling us to fulfill high-volume orders for custom molded elastomer parts (between 10,000-20,000 per order).

Providing Supplemental EDM and CNC Machining Services

With our in-house EDM services and CNC Services, we can create valve stems and other metal mechanical components. We have the capabilities to machine variable flow adjustable valves and custom sealing rings tailored to the type of fluid, temperature, and pressure they will encounter.  

Will your equipment process refined oil or crude oil? Purified natural gas or a mixture of gas and another substance? No matter your application, we can create an elastomer compound that promises exceptional performance and durability.

Micro-Tronics Is Your Full-Service Manufacturer for Oil and Gas Parts

When you need high-quality custom molded rubber parts that will meet your timeline and budget requirements, it’s beneficial to work with a single company like Micro-Tronics that can provide top-of-the-line elastomer molding services, machining, and EDM services.

If you choose a shop that only has machining capabilities and plans to outsource the other services, chances are they’ll send your parts to a vendor like us anyway一and you’ll pay a premium price. So why not bring your oil and gas projects to us in the first place and save valuable time and money? You’ll also benefit from better end results since just one shop will have full control of the manufacturing process. 

Did you know we also do assembly work? In addition to manufacturing the components for your valves, we can assemble and ship completed parts to you. Depending on the volume needed, vendor-managed inventory may also be an option.
