Oil and Gas – Compressor Valve Materials

Compressor Valve Plate

Compressor Valve Plate

Imagine compressor plate and poppet valve compounds specially designed for reliability and efficiency to meet ever-evolving performance expectations of compressor manufactures and operators. At RTP Company, we not only imagined them, we’ve made them a reality.

Compressor plate and poppet valves are used in a wide range of compressor applications across different gas compositions, temperature ranges, chemical environments, and differential pressures. Material characteristics to consider when selecting a compressor valve material include: temperature capabilities, chemical resistance, impact properties, wear performance, and fatigue resistance.

To achieve the appropriate/required characteristic requirements, thermoplastic materials have become the material of choice. Unlike metal compressor valves, thermoplastic materials provide improved corrosion resistance, reduced wear on mating surfaces, improved sealing capabilities, and lighter weight (higher lift capabilities).
