Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Oil production platform, UK North Sea

 
 

Application Date:

June 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

Water Storage Tank.

 
 

Problem:

Tank was suffering localised pitting and coating breakdown on deck plates and beam edges. Superior erosion resistant coating required to protect the vessel from further corrosion.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

Belzona 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal)

 

Substrate:

Carbon steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona system Leaflet TCC-5. After preparing substrate by grit blasting, Belzona 1111 was used to rebuild the areas of pitting and corrosion, and then coated with Belzona 1321 to provide erosion-corrosion protection in the lower section of the tank. .

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona products safely protected the tank from corrosion and allowed a fast and easy back to service with an in-situ application. This avoided replacement of the equipment, making significant savings. Belzona 1321 is suitable for potable water use, making it the ideal coating for this scenario.
