Western Falcon liners have successfully proven the use of thermoplastic liners in down-hole applications since 1992. Operators are experiencing drastic reductions in operating costs associated with rod-on-tubing wear and tubing corrosion failures. The liner material incorporates proprietary lubricants to aid in mitigating wear and corrosion failures in beam-pumped and progressive cavity pumped wells. Benefits can be realized in highly deviated and dog-legged wells without additional costs for slim hole rod boxes or rod guides. The liners have been equally successful in controlling tubular corrosion in other artificially lifted wells and disposal wells. The extremely smooth liner surface is helping many operators experience decreased pressure drops, electrical cost savings, and increased production due to fundamental hydraulic benefits. The liners have also proven resistant to wire line, acid, and chemical damage. Additionally, a unique mechanical bond allows reuse of used and lower quality tubing saving on steel costs. The bonding procedure allows lining pipe with surface imperfections including the ability to line over damaged used internal plastic coatings without the additional cost of removal. The connection system is the most reliable and easiest to install in the OCTG corrosion control industry.
Polycore High Density Polyethylene Liner
Polycore™ is a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) liner. This patented product is highly abrasion resistant which accounts for its success in the mitigation of rod on tubing wear, wire line, mechanical, and handling damage. HDPE is chemically inert to corrosive materials enhancing its use as a corrosion barrier. The mechanically bonded seamless tube is tolerant to minor surface imperfections of pipe and eliminates concerns with holidays or voids as in adhesive or thermally bonded liners and coatings. Maximum Temperature 160° F (71° C) Oil, 180° F (82° C) Aqueous.

Modified Polycore High Density Polyethylene Liner
Falcon Modified Polycore™ is a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) liner. This patented product is highly abrasion resistant which accounts for its success in the mitigation of tubing rod wear, wire line, mechanical, and handling damage. HDPE is chemically inert to corrosive materials enhancing its use as a corrosion barrier. The mechanically bonded seamless tube is tolerant to minor surface imperfections and eliminates concerns with holidays or voids as in adhesive or thermally bonded liners and coatings.

Enertube Polyolefin Liner
Enertube™ is a liner manufactured from a specially formulated blend of polyolefins. This liner is similar in mechanical properties to the field proven Falcon Polycore™ liner with a moderate increase in tensile strength and temperature resistance. This second generation of Falcon liners is specifically designed to operate in wells too hot for Polycore™ and is a seamless mechanically bonded liner providing a smooth tubing surface. Maximum Temperature 210° F (99° C) in all services.
Higher Temperature Water Wells
Ultratube Engineering Thermoplastic Liner
Ultratube™ is a high performance liner manufactured from a proprietary blended polyphenylene sulfide thermoplastic resin specially formulated for use in downhole oil and gas production environments. This third generation liner has a significant increase in temperature stability, tensile strength, abrasion and chemical resistance over the other proven liners. The innovative polymers in this liner offer the broadest range of resistance to solvents, steam, strong bases, fuel, and acids. The new polymers are specifically designed to limit (not prevent) the permeability of acid gases such as CO2 and H2S. Maximum Temperature 350° F (175° C) in all services.

Extremetube Engineering Thermoplastic Liner for Extreme Conditions
Extremetube™ is a high performance liner for the most extreme operating conditions. This unique liner is made from PEEK Polymer and is the highest tensile strength and highest temperature liner available. Extremetube™ is an excellent alternative to corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) tubulars and offers protection against corrosion and wear problems under the most severe environmental conditions. Maximum Temperature 500° F (260° C).
