A complete application method for all lengths of in-situ pipeline
DragX application minimizes down times and maximizes cost savings for all flow regimes and products. Benefits include increased efficiency & throughput, reduced pressure drop & power usage, mitigation of corrosion on internal pipe surfaces, reduction in adhesion of debris & paraffin, and reduced need for inspections, cleaning & maintenance. On heavily corroded lines, DragX could reduce the pressure drop losses by a factor of 2.

Faster Pigging & Less Frequent Scrapping
DragX uses advanced pigging solutions for applying the surface treatment uniformly on long, pipeline segments - utilizing a 72-hour pot-life combined with cure times between coats of just 30-90 minutes and full cure times in 12-24 hours.
A Revolutionary In-situ Surface Treatment
In field trials, DragXTM could reduce pressure drop within a treated line by up to 25% when applied to a relatively clean, lightly corroded line. In comparison, traditional mechanical pigging and cleaning can only achieve improvement of 10% and this effect is only temporary.
