Oil & Petrochemical

oil-refiningAMI offers a full line of heat resistant textiles for the MRO applications found in the oil and petrochemical industry such as high temperature gasketing, insulating tapes for steam lines, heat resistant hose and pipe covering and the most extensive line of FM Approved hot work fabrics. AMI’s certified hot work fabrics are required by NFPA 51B and are used during plant shutdowns and turnarounds to protect adjacent areas from dangerous sparks and molten metal. AMI’s heat resistant textiles are used to create welding habitats in offshore drilling operations to safely contain hot work in areas where residual combustible gases could be present.

 

MEETING THE STANDARDS
