In the last piece, we learned the irreplaceable advantages of non-metal hose in oilfield. This time let’s see other advantages.
Small heat conductivity coefficient
This means it has great heat preservation property. The heat conductivity coefficient of metal pipe could be 1400W/(m.k). While it is just 50-400W/(m.k) for non-metal hose. Therefore, it helps reduce the heat loss.
Non-metal hose is much lighter than metal pipe, which could be just 1/5. Therefore, it’s easy to transfer, to operate and to install. Thus, you need less workers and equipment, then the cost will be down. Besides, the connection methods of non-metal hose is various and flexible.
From these we can see non-metal hose has unparalleled advantage compared with metal hose. However, non-metal hose also has some disadvantages.
1. The production equipment, technology level and service quality are quite different from different suppliers. Therefore, the production standard is not unified. The non-universal products may cause huge problems to the operation of oilfield.
2. The stiffness of non-metal hose is not that great as metal hose. Therefore, it has poor mechanical damage resistance and it’s easy to break.
3. The construction team lacks of experience and the acceptance is not that standard. Therefore, this cause defect in construction. Then it brings security risk to the safe running.
We can see the non-metal hoses also have some defects. However, they still play an important part in oil industry. Moreover, the technology is developing and the engineering experience will be more rich. Therefore, the quality of non-metal hose will be more and more better. The advantage will also be more obvious.
