TICO has served the Oil & Gas industry for over 60 years. The TICO range of products are used upstream and downstream, and are commonly specified on a number of projects including most recently 2 projects, namely the Hebron and Shah Deniz. We have developed a range of anti-vibration, high temperature and fire retardant Pipe Support products for use within the Oil & Gas industry including Pipe Supports, Clamp Lining Clip Strips and Sliding Bearings.
Tico is designed to help eliminate pipework fatigue caused by excessive vibrations and is also used to reduce Vibration and Noise transmission from pumps, generators and compressors within Refineries and Petrochemical plants. Our products are backed with full support from our Technical Support Team who are able to advise on the best solutions to any vibration problem specific to the Oil & Gas Industry.
Oil & Gas Applications
Deep Water Exploration and production in hostile environments demands the highest quality equipment. That equipment is only as good as the component parts from which it is built, when Tiflex worked with leading offshore specifiers to develop an isolated pipe hanger this philosophy was our starting point.
Utilising our TICO materials and drawing on many years of experience in the design of load bearing elastomeric components, we have designed this range of products to provide the highest level of shock and vibration isolation between pipe-work and hanger. Available in a comprehensive range of sizes, TICO Clip Strips provide an effective and economical answer to the problem of pipe isolation and anti-vibration.

The most commonly used resilient anti-vibration pad for mounting general plant and machinery. Suitable for the majority of applications where ease of installation and flexibility of plant layout are prime factors on installations.
This anti-vibration pad is compatible with all types of machine base - individual feet, cast skirts or flat base. Operational temperature range -40˚C to 100˚C (-40˚F to 212˚F) and a high load bearing capacity covers virtually all mounting applications.
Slide Bearings - Bondslips
Tico Slide Bearing units accommodate large movements in pipework installations as well as many other types of structure. They are usually comprised of two separate components that act together to provide a plane sliding surface with a low coefficient of friction.
Typical application for a Tico slide bearing is as a pipe support where its low friction characteristics cater for pipe movements, e.g. due to thermal expansion and contraction, without a build up of stress. Tico slide bearing units can also be used as guide stops to restrain movement in one or more directions.
Originally developed to absorb shock loads under drop hammer anvils, replacing timber packings which would break down unevenly over time and cause the anvil to take on an uneven set. It can also be used as a heavy-duty machinery mounting pad to reduce vibration from large plant, acting as a heavy duty buffer.
