Oil & Gas (OILG)

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Oil refinery in New Zealand

 
 

Application Date:

2001

 
 

Application Situation:

Corroded pipework and columns.

 
 

Problem:

CUI (Corrosion Under Insulation) was causing costly shutdowns to under-take repairs.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 5851 (HA-Barrier)

 

Substrate:

Steel and stainless steel

 
 

Application Method:

Manual surface preparation was done with high pressure water blasting. Belzona® 5851 (HA-Barrier) was applied directly to hot pipework while in service.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Lost production during shutdowns is very expensive. Also, maintenance and management services are stretched thin during shutdowns, whereas carrying out maintenance outside of normal shutdowns allows for more effective use of resources.
