Across all heavy industrial sectors, getting longer lifespans out of pipelining and other wear materials is critical to your operation’s success. Today, many operations use unlined or metal-lined steel pipes for fluids and slurry transportation processes. While these options are inexpensive and effective in the short-term, both unlined pipe and metallic liners have poor wear performance, leading to increased downtime, repairs, and maintenance costs.
Iracore’s polyurethane pipelining and wear products are a cost-effective solution to these problems, outperforming unlined and metal-lined pipes in terms of lifespan and performance.
Read on to learn more about Iracore’s full polyurethane lining solutions to today’s wear challenges.
Top-Performance Wear Materials
Polyurethane-lined pipe has several properties that make it superior to unlined pipe, metallic pipe liners, and even natural and synthetic rubbers. Its resistance to bitumen and other hydrocarbons, as well as its resilience to slipping and tearing abrasion, make it ideal for high-wear areas in oil and gas, mining, and aggregate processes.
Field and laboratory testing has repeatedly shown polyurethane’s superiority to other lining solutions. Multiple trials have shown Iracore urethane-lined pipe to be up to six times more durable than unlined steel pipe, resulting in a 50% lower cost-per-foot in many industrial applications.
Engineered for Optimum Performance
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 clients’ specific requirements. Currently, Iracore has 20 unique proprietary compounds engineered for specific applications and use cases across all industries. Partnering with Iracore ensures that your operation will receive top-quality urethane components engineered to meet your process’s unique needs.
