Polyflow BHGE’s Thermoflex® pipe products are used for a variety of surface applications in a range of pressure and temperature environments.
When used for surface applications, our composite pipe solutions deliver:
Unmatched corrosion resistance
Ability to combine water and CO2 lines
Rapid, low cost installation
Elimination of corrosion inhibitors and cathodic protection
Reduced pressure drop as compared to equivalent sizes of steel pipe
UV additive jacket tested to fight micro-cracking for up to 20 years
Thermoflex® pipe products offer lightweight, continuous spooled lengths for rapid, low-cost installations in crowded oil fields.
Thermoflex® products have a lower coefficient of friction when compared to steel, allowing a smaller diameter pipe to be used for a similar pressure drop.
Thermoflex® pipe products provide a low-cost, corrosion-resistant solution for high performance injection lines.
Whether you need to inject high pressure water, CO2 or Natural Gas, the continuous spooled lengths of Thermoflex® pipe products can be installed fast.
Thermoflex® pipe products have a lower coefficient of friction when compared to steel, allowing a smaller diameter pipe to be used for a similar pressure drop.
For gas lift applications, Thermoflex® piping provides a solution that is resistant to hydrocarbons, CO2, H2S and brine.
A wide range of available sizes make it a versatile choice for new gas lift lines or for adding gas lift through existing lines.
Salt Water Disposal
The unique polymer liners in Thermoflex® piping provide exceptional corrosion resistance for salt water disposal and injection lines.
Available in continuous, spooled lengths, Thermoflex® pipe is lightweight, flexible and easy to install.
Unlike steel pipe, Polyflow’s Thermoflex® pipe requires no corrosion inhibitors or constant pigging to keep lines clear, even with the harshest well fluids. This reduces operating costs while allowing operators to focus on opening new wells and increasing production.
Refined Fuel Transportation
Transport refined fuels confidently with Thermoflex® pipe
Thermoflex® pipe can also be used to transport refined hydrocarbon products, such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuels. Unlike standard polyethylene pipe, Thermoflex® pipe’s nylon inner layer is fully compatible with refined fuels at both ambient and elevated temperatures. Nylon materials such as these have been widely used in automobile fuel lines with great success for over 40 years.
The benefits of using Thermoflex® pipe for refined fuel transportation include:
Easy, low cost installation
Reduced maintenance and upkeep
Wide range of temperature compatibility
Proven track record of nylon materials
