Coated steel.


Application Method:

The flange faces were then reformed using equivalent weldneck flanges in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-13.


Belzona Facts:

A total of ten flange faces were reformed, and saved using this Belzona technique. The work was completed over several days without the need for any type of hot work, thus saving the customer significant costs in welding time, quality control as well as eliminating much of the risk associated with hot work offshore.
