I-Rod experience list

Major facilities using I-Rod

I-Rod has been installed many thousands of times worldwide since we began offering it in 1989. Most I-Rod products are sold through OEM companies, supply houses and distributors, so end-users are not always known to us. This is a partial list of positively identified major refineries and plants using I-Rod pipe supports.
