Our high performance fluoroelastomer (FKM), hydrogenated nitrile (HNBR) and Aflas based (FEPM) elastomers are specified worldwide by customers who need top quality materials that are validated and proven to operate under extreme conditions including rapid gas decompression, chemical attack and extremes of temperature.
These products form the core of our oil and gas industry ranges.
Our high pressure sealing components range from O-rings in a vast range of materials, to special ranges developed for dynamic or static duties on down-hole, wellhead, surface equipment, valves, pipelines and riser systems.
Manufactured by API-licensee James Walker Moorflex, these metal seals conform to both ASME and API standards. Products include R, RX and BX ring joints, as well as lens, convex, wedge, double-cone and weld ring metal gaskets.
Dedicated to the precision manufacturing of high-performance metallic components for use in industry’s most demanding applications. Our machine shop specialises in the high-precision machining of geometrically complex components in exotic alloys.
Our Devlon® materials are amongst the toughest and hardest-wearing thermoplastics - ideal for manufacturing components such as valve seats, ROV buckets, pipe centralisers, riser and umbilical clamps. By monomer casting and machining to exacting specifications, we produce complex components from 10mm to over 2500mm OD, and weighing up to 1000kg.
RotaBolt® stud and bolt tension monitoring systems are accurate to ±5%. These are used across all industry sectors where the failure of a bolted system could have serious health and safety, environmental or financial consequences. RotaBolt tension monitoring with visual, tactile or wireless monitoring options is recommended for critical structural, mechanical and flange tightening applications.
James Walker companies supply industry worldwide with professional flange management and joint integrity programmes and services that go well beyond the accepted norms in terms of professional advice and planning, quality of on-site and off-site workmanship, standards of safety and care and customer satisfaction from initial survey to completion and beyond.
