Belzona® Protects Hot Pipework

 
 

Industry:

Petrochemical (PETR)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Refinery, Germany

 
 

Application Date:

September 2010

 
 

Application Situation:

Hot pipework (aprox. 110°C) in the refinery

 
 

Problem:

Original paint system was failing allowing pipework to corrode. New protection required to be applied whilst system remained operational.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 5851 (HA-Barrier)

 

Substrate:

Mild Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet TCC-5. As the pipe was in hot service only minimal surface preparation could be carried out to remove the exsisting coating. Once the pipe was returned to a sound substrate, the product was applied by brush to the hot pipework.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Although this was a successful trial the major work which was intended has yet to proceed.
