In the oil and gas, pipeline, and other adjacent industries, many operations rely on unlined or metal-lined steel pipes for the transportation of fluids and slurries. While these options can be effective in the short term, both unlined pipe and metallic liners exhibit poor wear characteristics, leading to increased downtime, repairs, and maintenance costs.
Iracore’s polyurethane pipelining and wear materials offer a cost-effective solution to these challenges, providing superior wear performance when compared to unlined and metal-lined pipes. If your organization is looking for value-adding solutions to wear challenges, read on to learn more about Iracore’s complete polyurethane lining solutions.
Superior Materials for Superior Performance
Polyurethane has several properties making it ideal for pipelining applications. Specifically, its resistance to oil and other hydrocarbons, coupled with its resiliency to sliding and tearing abrasion, making it the perfect solution to wear challenges in the oil and gas and adjacent industries.
Field testing has repeatedly demonstrated polyurethane’s superiority to other lining solutions. Research has shown that Iracore urethane-lined pipe can last up to six times longer than unlined steel pipe, resulting in 50% lower per-foot costs for operations.
The Leading Edge of Wear Technology
Many companies are offering polyurethane-lined pipe today; what makes Iracore different?
While many manufacturers source their lining material from third parties, Iracore engineers and manufactures our own proprietary polyurethane compounds using raw materials directly from major chemical producers. Our research and development team continuously develops new compounds, bonding agents, and manufacturing techniques to meet our customers’ requirements. Currently, Iracore has 20 unique proprietary compounds engineered for specific applications and use cases. When your organization partners with Iracore, you can rest assured that your operation will receive top-quality urethane components engineered to meet your specific needs.
