Trelleborg will showcase its vast product portfolio for the offshore industry at this year’s Offshore Technology Conference May 2-5 in Houston.
The oil and gas industry is a key focus for Trelleborg . The Sealing Solutions,Offshore and Industrial Hose businesses will demonstrate a number of new technologies in Booth 5217 at the exhibition, including the vortex induced vibration (VIV) system and a range of Explosive Decompression Resistant (EDR) materials.
“Our commitment to the oil and gas industry can be further demonstrated through our new Brazil facility, planned for completion this year, which will be dedicated to the production of a wide range of syntactic, buoyancy and polymer-based solutions for offshore topside and subsea oil and gas exploration,” says Phil Walsh, global marketing manager for Trelleborg Offshore.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will showcase its unique XplorR™ range of EDR materials formulated for the oil and gas industry, along with its new FlexiMold™ technology, which enables the production of giant high-quality seals that meet the high-integrity needs of the oil and gas industry. The Trelleborg Sealing Solutions team will be demonstrating its online and mobile apps designed to make seal specification easier.
Trelleborg Offshore’s vortex induced vibration system has been developed to reduce VIV fatigue in pipelines. The unique modular design of the T-Strake enables more efficient transportation and installation than traditional solutions.
