API BOP Hose is made with high quality components to operate under harsh crisis oil field conditions. It is designed to maintain its required operating pressure in the event of severe fire exposure. This type of BOP control hydraulic hose is specified by API 16D, suitable for high pressure hydraulic applications on drilling control equipment and capable of containing its rated operating pressure in flame temperatures up to 1300degF(700degC) for 5 minutes.

High Pressure

BOPs are designed to contain the erratic pressure (known as a formation kick) and uncontrolled flow of oil, gas and drilling fluid that occur when drilling a well. These systems control the pressure of the drilled hole and prevent tubing, drill pipe, tools and the drilling mud from being blown out of the well, which is known as a blowout. API 16D BOP control hoses are manufactured with superior components to operate under tough crisis oil field conditions. These hoses are capable of maintaining their rated working pressure in the harshest fire exposure environment for a minimum of five minutes. Rig operators must submit accumulator precharge pressures for District Manager approval prior to BOP stack deployment and calibration to OEM specifications. However, this requirement would be burdensome for most equipment owners. Chamber pressure tests are already required at a minimum of yearly, and when equipment is repaired or remanufactured. Using these tests to determine accumulator precharge pressures would be more efficient and cost-effective.

High Temperature

BOP control hoses are manufactured with superior components that allow them to operate withstand tough crisis oilfield conditions such as high temperature and fire exposure. These hoses are designed to hold full working pressure and allow the system to continue operations even in the most severe fires. Blow-out prevention (BOP) systems are a vital part of the overall safety and operational capability of oil drilling rigs. The system is responsible for sealing the well in case of a blowout. This is accomplished with a combination of mechanical and hydraulic control devices that can be activated when primary well control fails or when the situation calls for emergency well control measures. API Standard 53 requires that a Class 5 BOP stack arrangement be installed for 15K and higher pressure rated systems. This includes one or more blinding shear rams and a pipe ram. The decision to use one or more rams is based on a risk assessment of the well to be drilled.

Fire Resistance

Blowout prevention systems rely on high-pressure hydraulic applications for control equipment. Consequently, they must be able to operate in the harshest oil field conditions, including fire exposure. BOP control hoses are manufactured with superior components to allow them to hold their rated operating pressure even in the presence of flames and heat. The BOP hose assembly is flexible through extreme temperatures for easy handling and the abrasion-resistant cover holds up to rough treatment in the field. It can be supplied with a range of accessories, including quick disconnects, self-sealing unions and exterior armor to protect against extreme environmental damage. Each hose is tested at 22500psi for 15 minutes and a pressure test graph, test certificate and letter of conformance are issued.

Heat Insulation

Designed according to API 16D, the BOP hydraulic hoses are ideal for high pressure applications on drilling well control equipment. They are capable of retaining the rated working pressure while exposed to flame temperature of 1300degF (700degC) for a minimum of five minutes. The hose has a stainless steel armored outer covering that protects it from damage caused by abrasion, cutting, gouging and weather. It also has a rubber inner wall that is resistant to abrasion, ozone, oil and corrosion. The hose has a high level of heat insulation, anti-flaming and fire resistance. It is used for Blowout Preventer Hydraulic control and for hydraulic transmission at high-temperature and flammable places in the metallurgical industry.
