Visaflush, A range of specialist fibres environmentally approved for the global oil industry

Oil and Mining

Sweeping, Filtration and Sealants

Goonvean Fibres offer short cut fibres and flocks that can be used for bore cleaning, as a case cleaning agent and for filtration. Aramid fibres are also used in sealant compounds for high temperature and pressure seals in aggressive environments where production down time is not an option.

Filtration

Fibres & Flocks

FiltrationFibre flocks are used as pre-coats in wet filtration systems. They mask and bridge the open mesh in metal screens and loosely woven filter cloths. Our filtration aids provide a number of benefits. For example, flocks must be easily dispersible, able to coat the mesh evenly and handle strongly acidic or alkaline conditions. Cellulose flocks are also resistant to cold weak acid and hot alkaline filtration liquors, and are suitable for filtering alumina plating solutions, silicates and caustic solutions. Cellulose flocks also absorb microscopic impurities and 100% of the emulsified oil in boiler condensates. Because the flock has virtually no ash content, burning allows the metal and metal catalysts trapped within the filter flock to be reclaimed. Precision or short cut fibres also reinforce non-woven mats and papers used in oil, air and specialist filters such as dust masks and aircraft filters.

Goonvean Fibres can offer precision cut fibres (in continuous filament form) using rotary and guillotine cutters. Capable of cutting from 0.25mm up to 50mm. For further information please contact enquiry@goonveanfibres.co.uk

Natural ground olive stones are odorless organic materials ground to fine flours, granules and pits. These inexpensive natural materials are used in a variety of applications such as paints, cosmetics and non slip coatings.

Goonvean Fibres offers a polyethylene flock for use in a variety of applications including filtration, sealants, paints and rubber compounds.

Viscose rayon is most commonly used in the production of paper and packaging but has also found applications in filtration, hygiene and oil well drilling. The fibre has an exceptional dye affinity making it invaluable for use in speciality papers such as bank notes. As the material is 100% biodegradable it is globally accepted for use in applications which demand environmental control.

Viscose Rayon is a manufactured regenerated cellulose fibre. As it is produced from naturally occurring polymers, it is neither a truly synthetic fibre nor a natural fibre; it is a semi-synthetic or artificial fibre. It usually has a high lustre quality giving it a bright sheen.

Viscose rayon is most commonly used in the production of standard paper and speciality papers. As the material is 100% biodegradable it is also globally accepted for use in environmentally friendly applications. It has been used in oil well drilling operations to replace non-biodegradable synthetic fibres.

Oil Drilling

Sweeping Agents

Oil DrillingGoonvean Fibres manufactures a range of environmentally friendly products for the Oil Industry. When grease is used on drilling pipes it can leach out into the centre or 'core' of the drill pipe. Before the reservoir is reached the core has to be cleaned through with an abrasive fluid to take out the grease residue. Lab results have shown that the product VisaFlush® increases the effectiveness of this cleaning fluid.

Sealing Compounds

Leak Repair Systems

Sealing CompoundsFor aggressive environments where immediate maintenance is not immediately possible, e.g chemical transfer pipework, sealing compounds containing short cut aramid and acrylonitrile fibres provide a sealing compound that will withstand extremely high temperatures and levels of abrasion and corrosion.

Short cut aramid fibres and flocks are widely used as reinforcement and process aids (pre-form production) in friction products where high temperature and wear resistance are important. Aramid fibres are also used by gasket and seal manufacturers for use in aggressive environments.

Acrylic fibre flock is a polyacrylonitrile fibre used as an alternative to asbestos for the manufacture of brake pads and clutch plates. The fire resistant properties of the material also make it an ideal choice in intumescent applications such as paints and sealants.

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is a synthetic resin prepared by the polymerisation of acrylonitrile. A member of the important family of acrylic resins, it is a hard, rigid thermoplastic material that is resistant to most solvents and chemicals, slow to burn, and of low permeability to gases. PAN fibre is therefore used in many different applications where these attributes are specified.
