Belzona® Protects Platform Seawater Caisson

 
 

Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Oil Platform, UK North Sea

 
 

Application Date:

July 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

Seawater Caisson

 
 

Problem:

Inspection of a Seawater Caisson revealed defects, requiring a section to be replaced.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1391S

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

New caisson section was fabricated for replacement and was grit blasted to SA 2.5 before coating with B1391S. The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-2.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Continuous immersion in seawater and difficult access conditions means that caissons can be exposed to corrosive environments without any protection. Belzona 1391S was chosen for this problem due to its effective corrosion resistance in wet environments. It can be easily sprayed onto substrates which can reduce downtime.
