Mineral oil is one of the most important resources in the world because of its versatile uses.
Not only is it the basis for numerous fuels, simultaneously it is the basis for plastics, dyes, paints and pharmaceuticals.
Crude oil is extremely corrosive and heavily affects the inside wall of steel pipelines. Particularly gathering pipeplines from extraction wells to pump stations and refineries are therefore very susceptible to damage. Primus Line® not only functions as a rehabilitation but also a preventative solution: The inner layer of the O-Liner consists of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that acts as a corrosion barrier to the steel pipe.
Primus Line® is especially suited for the following conditions
Type of pipeline
Primus Line® is best-suited for crude oil lines, product lines (for example diesel, kerosene, heavy oil and many more) as well as jetty offloading pipelines. Our engineers examine the suitability in every individual case on the basis of operating parameters and conduct tests under real conditions.
The Primus Line O-Liner is utilized independently from the host pipe with the following materials that are often used in the oil sector.
- Steel (coated and uncoated)
Location of the pipeline
- Gathering pipelines
- Jetty pipelines
- Firefighting lines
- Cooling water lines
