The Best Oil and Gas Injection Tubing: Injectorplex

The oil and gas industry has been a critical industry for the development of the modern society we enjoy today. It has given us numerous opportunities and products that would be hard to live without. Plastic is one of these products, and it’s also one of the products that help keep the oil and gas industry moving. Inplex manufacturers custom plastic tubing that is industry-changing. Today we cover why Inplex offers the best oil and gas injection tubing: Injectorplex.

What is Injectorplex?

One of the best injection tubing options available on the market is Injectorplex oil and gas injection tubes. Injectorplex is a custom plastic tubing that replaces steel tubing used previously. Why use expensive stainless steel tubing when you could be using state-of-the-art Injectorplex oil and gas injection tubing that is cheaper and maximizes the throughput of your drilling site?

Injectorplex is a cutting-edge solution to improve the Oil and Gas Industry. Learn more about how Injectorplex is a unique Inplex product in our blog: How is Injectorplex Unique to Inplex.

Injectorplex not only replaces but surpasses stainless steel oil and gas injection tubing. Injectorplex is tough and versatile, getting the job done regardless of drilling conditions. The versatility and durability of Injectorplex offer a longer life cycle, easy convertibility, lower cost, and a greater return on investment than traditional stainless steel oil and gas injection tubing.

Stainless steel oil and gas injection tubing has long been a significant bottleneck in the extraction process. Stainless steel is both expensive and unreliable — an awful combination. Even when stainless steel oil and gas injection tubing is working as intended, it has a woefully short life cycle and requires near-constant replacement.

With Injectorplex, oil and gas drilling companies can cut costs and improve the quality of their drilling equipment, in even the most extreme drilling conditions.

Custom Plastic Tubing Manufacturing

Inplex has been manufacturing extruded custom plastic tubing and profiles for over 50 years. We consistently exceed expectations, holding ourselves to impossible standards as we manufacture incredible products with a focus on dependability and responsibility. Our tubes are made of up to 25% recycled materials!

The Injectorplex oil and gas transport tubes are manufactured with finite-precision for each individual purpose. Speak with our custom plastic experts to determine the tubing size or reel lengths you require, and then we will custom manufacture Injectorplex tubing to your exact specifications. Count on Inplex to exceed your project expectation, whatever they are! You’ll quickly understand how the Inplex process is superior through our continued focus on quality and customer service. We will show you why Injectorplex tubing is the solution to reduce both your costs and your carbon footprint.

Once you’ve received and installed your product, Injectorplex will greatly improve your site operations without affecting the environment. It will increase your profit while decreasing your carbon footprint. It performs in whatever harsh drilling conditions you face with a much longer lifespan than the previously used steel injection tubing.

Incomparable Oil and Gas Injection Tubing Features

Injectorplex’s feature list is extensive. Injectorplex oil and gas injection tubing can:

  • High temperature of continuous use (300°F)
  • Excellent chemical resistance to solvents, acids, bases and
    oil fluids on high temperatures
  • Excellent resistance to permeability to hydrocarbons
    and other fluids
  • Resistance to or accumulation of paraffin
  • Excellent mechanical properties and resistance to flow (creep)
  • High hardness and rigidity
  • Excellent resistance to hydrolysis/water absorption
  • Dimensional Stability
  • Resistance to all types of fuels, solvents, acids,
    bases at high temperatures
  • Excellent resistance to permeation of fluids
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Resistant to H2S and CO2
  • High resistance to paraffin buildup
  • Excellent dimensional stability and mechanical strength
    and impact at high temperatures
  • Inherently flame retardant (UL 94 V-0 at 0.4mm)
  • Significantly lower specific density than metal
  • Chemical resistance with a minimal attack or swelling even
    under high temperatures
  • Resist: acids / bases pH 2 to 12
  • 3Resists: automotive fluids – refrigeration, transmission
    and brake
  • Resist: alternative gases and fuels (methanol, ethanol)
  • Resists: Hydrolysis

Injectorplex injection tubing is also extremely rigid. Mechanically, it provides optimal dimensional stability, mechanical strength, and impact resistance. Injectorplex comes in two different types of capillary tubing depending on your oil and gas injection tubing needs.

kryptonite capillary injection tubing Kryptonite Capillary Tubing

Injectorplex Kryptonite capillary tubing is a linear, semicrystalline, impact-modified engineering thermoplastic with excellent thermal stability, steadfast toughness, and brilliant chemical resistance. Kryptonite also offers impact resistance, substantial mechanical strength, unmatched dimensional stability, a low coefficient of friction, low shrinkage, creep resistance at high temperatures, a maximum continuous use temperature of 300° F, low moisture absorption, and solid electrical properties.

Compared to other materials, it is relatively impermeable to both liquids and gasses. Kryptonite’s high tensile elongation, hardness, rigidity, and resistance to hydrolysis, heat, corrosion, oxidation, and paraffin buildup will keep it running long-term under the most onerous conditions.

While Kryptonite’s maximum continuous use temperature is 300° F, it still has high chemical resistance to solvents up to 340° F — including acids, bases, alternative and conventional fuel sources, and petroleum. Kryptonite is well-suited to replace metals and complies with RoHS, PFOS, and PFOA regulations. It also will not kink and weighs a fraction of stainless steel strings. Kryptonite can also be milled without balling up.

 

 Specific Gravity 1.264 g/cc
 Density .0452lb/in3
 Water Absorbtion .0300%
 Hardness Rockwell M 41.0
 Tensile Strength at Break 7250
 Coefficient of Friction, Dynamic 200
 Flexural Strength 11,500 PSI

 

Kryptonite Capillary Tubing provides even more protection against environmental threats. When you are drilling in the harshest environments, you want to choose Kryptonite Capillary Tubing for your oil and gas injection tubing material.
