High Performance Polyurethane
Vertebrae Bend Restrictors
Whitefield Plastics offers the cutting edge in VBR technology. Combining lightweight, field-proven, and high strength materials, the new generation bend restrictor leverages mechanical properties for maximum performance.
Onshore Energy Products
Whitefield Plastics manufactures high performance polyurethane products for onshore energy applications. Onshore denotes three sectors of energy production: oil, natural gas and wind. Some common products include RCDs, Custom thread protectors, and power transmission urethane roller components.
Jar Safety Clamps
Whitefield Plastics makes a wide range of safety clamps for drilling jars. The safety clamps are placed around the exposed chrome area and prevents damage while transporting to the rig. The safety clamp also keeps the jar from activating while installing.
Whitefield Plastics also designs safety covers for rotating control devices to protect workers on the rig floor and to prevent tools from contacting the rotating drilling head.
Whitefield Plastics produces mux lines/clamps to secure lines or cables to a drilling riser. We offer off-the-shelf clamping systems or we can design a project-specific clamp for you. Whitefield Plastic’s engineering team has designed clamps based on specific customer requirements, including a full 360 degree rotating clamp and a clamp with no steel components. Please contact us to discuss your specific clamping needs.
Traditional polyurethane formulations can be used in temperatures ranging for -80F to 190F (-62C to 88C). Once 190F is exceeded, the performance of a tradition system will rapidly degrade.
Patents guard valuable and useful intellectual property. Issuance of a patent is warranted only when an idea or system is unique and new, to the extent that there is nothing else like it in existence. Whitefield Plastics owns several patents.
The use of metals, bolted, and welded connections have been the most common design detail used to attach, connect, join, or interface components in mechanical systems for over 200 years. This method of design is easy to use and is a proven performer but comes with inherent limitations.
