With the greatest strength-to-weight ratio in flexible pipe, Thermoflex® is a low-cost alternative to steel. It features up to five proprietary layers - including aramid fibers for reinforcement, a Nylon PA12 liner for higher temperatures and a Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) layer for extremely corrosive environments - all of which can be configured to accommodate specific operating requirements for unmatched corrosion & chemical resistance.
Maximum operating pressure: 2,000 psi
Maximum operating temperature: 180°F
Ultra-low permeation: resistant to H2S, CO2, paraffin, bacteria and harsh chemicals.
Easy installation: lightest weight and longest length among spoolable pipe solutions, it installs with less manpower in less time. Improve installation & well connection time by 60% at a cost typically 1/5 vs steel.
Harsh terrain: Being a flexible pipe with excellent bending radius, Thermoflex can be maneuvered in all sorts of harsh terrain; Mountains, dense bush, desert, and rocky regions.
Offering major advantages over conventional HDPE pipe, PE Flex Plus is ideal for low-pressure fluid transport. It features a nylon liner for protection against hydrocarbon contamination and requires no pressure derating for hydrocarbons, even at higher temperatures. It’s also available with a PE-RT backer to withstand higher temperatures up to 180°F.
Maximum operating pressure: 300 psi
Maximum operating temperature: 150° F
Hydrocarbon and paraffin resistance
Our field service technicians are certified to ensure that every pipe installation project runs safely and smoothly. We’ll oversee pipeline deployment and installation ourselves or will train and certify your crew. Equipment available for short- and long-term rental, our custom deployment trailers allows for loading and unloading without a forklift or crane.
Bring new life to aging steel pipelines for a fraction of the cost. With Thermoflex Enhanced Rehabilitation Technologies®, spoolable Thermoflex is simply pulled through existing lines, eliminating the expense of trenching and minimizing disruption. Ideal for onshore and shallow offshore applications, the process requires less manpower and is safely deployed.
Every pipe project comes with a unique set of requirements. We have state of the art engineering and technical expertise to ensure successful execution. Our in-house pre-job planning includes line modeling and pressure curve analysis to ensure proper sizing, application, and installation. We also provide a range of options for pressure drops and flow rates.
With unmatched corrosion resistance and a lower friction coefficient, Thermoflex® pipe is ideal for downhole applications including velocity strings and submersible tubing. These advantages allow applications for smaller-diameter tubing and higher fluid velocities. Available in lightweight, continuous rolls, it installs faster and more affordably.
