Injecting DRA

Our main goal at PLUS is simple: to inject DRA.  However, achieving this goal is part science, part art.  Our core business is making DRA skids and we have a U.S. Patent on our design.  We have over 30 years experience in the DRA industry and our knowledge and experience translate to value for our customers.

Polymeric slurry DRA is a unique chemical that takes expertise to properly store and successfully inject into your pipeline.  Slurry DRA is a non-Newtonian fluid.  It is an unstable suspension of DRA polymer, surfactants, stabilizing compounds and a non-solvent (soy oil, alcohol, water, etc.)  One of the most important functions of a DRA injection system is the way the chemical is handled and stored.   With PLUS’ injection skid and tank, our customers are able to pump DRA when they need it, at the dosage they want.

Unbundled Approach to DRA

The “unbundled approach to DRA” refers to a business strategy by which the customer procures their injection equipment independent from the chemical supplier.  It takes the slurry DRA from a traditionally high margin specialty chemical to a more reasonable commodity by eliminating the restrictive uses on your injection equipment.  You control the use of the equipment—they don’t.   In other words, the chemical manufacturers increase their per gallon price when they provide the injection equipment and further restrict the user from pumping competitors DRA through their skid.  Whereas, with PLUS, the customer has control of the injection skid, thus eliminating any barriers for the chemical competition which lowers the DRA price.  The customer enjoys the benefits of the PLUS skid AND has the most cost competitive chemical pumping through that skid.  

The customer has more freedom; for example, you are able to split your chemical purchases between suppliers, change suppliers without removing/replacing equipment, and insure chemical supply in case your primary supplier has a manufacturing disruption.  This approach virtually eliminates the cost of change when testing, evaluating, and using different chemical vendors. 

The customer enjoys best in class for both equipment and chemical under this model.  You received superior service from PLUS because we are dedicated only to the equipment functions, and the chemical supplier would be free to focus on their strengths—R&D, formulation, manufacturing, quality control and logistics.

Our skids pump ALL slurry DRA on the market and can stay in place while you test different products or use multiple suppliers.
