Bailey-Parks Urethane will debut an innovative, long-lasting polyurethane piping system to replace the metal systems used on trailers that transport fracking sand at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), May 6–9, 2013, at the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Representatives of Bailey-Parks will be available to share technical information and answer any questions about this exciting new development at booth number 6100.

Frac-sand is typically transported via truck using a dry bulk trailer with three hoppers. Sand is extracted from this three-part rig through a system of aluminum pipes that runs along the bottom. Because fracking sand is so abrasive, these metal pipes wear out rather quickly. The Bailey-Parks urethane piping system has been specially designed to stand up to the wear caused by frac-sand and lasts significantly longer than its aluminum counterparts.

This cutting-edge system is the latest polyurethane innovation for the oil and gas industry. Urethane has proved an excellent material for the manufacture of a number of other critical components involved in fossil-fuel extraction, including hydrocyclones, impact pads, scrapers, sheeting, and wiper blades. Incredibly wear-resistant, urethane lasts significantly longer than aluminum or steel in corrosive conditions like those encountered in the oil, gas, and mining industries.

Exhibiting at booth 6100, Bailey-Parks will make brochures, samples, and technical data for all of its products available, with a special emphasis on the new urethane piping system it has developed for the transport of frac-sand.
