Replacing metals with composites in demanding applications
Reduce maintenance, capex, opex and extend life
The operating conditions common to the Oil and Gas sector can readily be referred to as arduous. Asset owners regularly face challenges from these extreme environments, such as ensuring equipment is maintained and in optimal working condition.
It is in these circumstances that composite materials really prove their worth. Composite materials can provide a low maintenance and hard wearing alternative to stainless steel, aluminium and other similar materials.
Below are some of the key requirements Insulect regularly addresses through the application of composite materials in place of metal:
- Chemical and corrosion
- Mechanical strength
- Water permeability
- Temperature extremes
- Thermal flow
- Electrical resistance and strength
The composites materials advantage
Insulect has partnered with Rochling - one of the leaders in the world of engineering plastics - allowing us to provide our customers with a wealth of application knowledge and the custom development of materials to suit the many demanding of applications.
Rochling have a wide range of materials that are designed around specific applications - electrical, thermal, mechanical, chemical or combinations of these - to ensure they meet the needs of the end user and deliver substantive advantages.
