THERMOCASE® offers the highest level of thermal insulation available in a down-hole tubular.
* Special Mill Order required
Vallourec Tube-Alloy Vacuum Insulated Tubing performance is stated as a 'k' value, which is expressed as BTUs/hour-foot-degree Fahrenheit. Currently, the product is capable of a joint-averaged "k" value of 0.004-0.006 in deepwater applications, and 0.006-0.02 in higher temperature applications such as steam flooding.
VIT is capable of temperature isolation in deepwater applications, and in high-
temperature applications such as steam flooding.
This thermal efficiency offers several advantages:
