Evaluation of operational stability polymer materials used in oil production
Data on polymeric materials used as isolation and containment electrical cable for submersible centrifugal pumps is analyzed. A new method for testing resistance of polymer materials for petroleum products, which simulate real operating conditions the cable is proposed and tested. Polymer compound based on a thermoplastic vinyl elastomer with high resistance to petroleum products was developed. The material passed through the advanced technological tests and is recommended for use as a protective sheath power cable installations of centrifugal pumps in the oil industry, with operating temperature up to 140 C.
