Belzona® Stabilizes Gas Pipeline On Bridges

 
 

Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Gas transmission company, Slovakia

 
 

Application Date:

First repair in 1998

 
 

Application Situation:

Pipe bridges supporting gas pipeline over waterways.

 
 

Problem:

Customer needed to keep pipe line in fixed position. To achieve this several sliding supports between bridge and pipe had to be installed. Welding was not possible as gas line was active. Each bridge has 16 such supports.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Repairs were completed in accordance with Belzona Know-How System leaflet VPF-15.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Every support is "connected" with pipe line via the slide assembly. The slide assembly needed to be fixed to the pipeline. Belzona® 1111 provides high strength bond without the need for hotwork, allowing work to progress without disrupting gas supplies. Since 1998, 5 such bridges have had supports bonded with Belzona without a single problem in that time.
