ERIKS North America to Highlight Solutions, Capabilities at the Offshore Technology Conference 2019

PITTSBURGH, April 23, 2019 – ERIKS North America, a leading industrial distributor, will exhibit a wide variety of innovative, reliable, and cost-effective solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry at booth #2872 during the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2019. The event will take place May 6–9, at NRG Center at NRG Park in Houston.

“ERIKS North America has served the offshore energy industry for decades in different capacities,” said Shawn Courtney, President and CEO of ERIKS North America. “As ERIKS North America has grown, so have our product offerings, as we strive to be complete problem solvers for our customers, providing them with reliable solutions and trusted services they need for the oil and gas industry’s most demanding applications.”

Visitors to the booth will have opportunities to talk with specialists in multiple product groups within ERIKS North America, including ERIKS Seals and Plastics, gaskets, industrial and hydraulic hoses, and loading arms.

Product specialists from the ERIKS Seals and Plastics group will be onsite to discuss a variety of high-performance, advanced elastomers and engineering plastics. Attendees can learn about ERIKS Seals and Plastics’ engineering capabilities and technical support, including complete application, design, development, testing, and analysis services.

Featured products on display at the ERIKS North America booth will include:
· The MARINE-ONE™ gasket, which is the latest breakthrough in sealing technology to prevent crevice corrosion on super-duplex stainless steel flanges on offshore drilling platforms in saltwater locations. The MARINE-ONE™ gasket is the industry’s only gasket featuring a triple-seal design that seals tighter than spiral-wound gaskets in both liquid and gas applications.

· FLEXION ™ hydraulic hoses, which are proven to handle 50% more pressure than required by industry standards and to provide a superior bending radius over alternative hoses. In addition, FLEXION™ hoses offer increased abrasion and ozone resistances that are 10 times better than industry standards, making FLEXION™ hoses one of world’s highest-quality engineered fluid connector solutions available today.

In addition, attendees will have an opportunity to learn about ERIKS North America’s Hose Maintenance Management program, which has been documented to save customers a total of $9.7 million over three years. The unique program enables plants to improve operational productivity and safety, while reducing the total cost of ownership for hoses and related coupling products.

Specialists from ERIKS North America’s loading arms group will be on hand to discuss a variety of products, such as loading arms, rack systems, gangways, pumping stations, liquid level probes, dry-break couplers, and more. In addition to providing extensive technical expertise and co-engineering services, ERIKS North America also works directly with leading manufactures, including OPW Engineered Systems.

Visitors to ERIKS North America’s booth also can participate in raffles for Maui Jim and Costa sunglasses.
