The Best Piping Solution for Oil and Gas Operations

The oil and gas industry faces demanding environments and rigorous operational requirements, driving the need for innovative piping solutions that enhance durability and efficiency. Durable polyurethane pipe systems, with a proven track record in various industries, have emerged as a game-changer, particularly in replacing traditional materials prone to wear and tear. Our Durastatic pipe exemplifies these advancements, offering superior performance tailored to the harsh conditions of oil and gas operations.

A Legacy of Durability and Innovation

Originally developed in 1979 for the US coal preparation industry, our Durastatic Pipe made from advanced thermoset polyurethanes has showcased unparalleled durability and performance. This first installation involved a 20' gravity feed drop into a 45-degree elbow, through a distributor box, and onto a vibrating, ribbed 8'x17' polyurethane cover, replacing carbon steel pipes that failed within weeks. Decades later, these original Durastatic Pipes remain in place, demonstrating their long-lasting resilience.

Expansion into Dry Applications 

Following its success in slurry applications, Durastatic Pipes were tested in dry (pneumatic) environments, particularly in abrasive blasting. The results were so impressive that manufacturers of abrasive blasting equipment started incorporating cast polyurethane pipes as OEM equipment, highlighting their outstanding performance and durability.

Advancements in the Oil and Gas Sector

The latest frontier for polyurethane pipe systems is the oil and gas industry, where they replace aluminum pipes in sand transport trailers. The specially formulated urethane material is incredibly wear-resistant and somewhat self-healing, making it ideal for the harsh conditions encountered in oil, gas, and mining operations. Our Durastatic Piping systems are engineered to withstand intense abrasion, such as that caused by frac sand, significantly outlasting plain aluminum or steel alternatives.
