Industry:

Oil & Gas (OILG)

 
 

Application:

Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)

 
 

Customer Location:

Glasgow, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

June 2017

 
 

Application Situation:

A section of pipework had an exposed flange that was deemed to be susceptible to corrosion.

 
 

Problem:

The Customer required a solution that would protect the flange from corosion whilst still allowing access for inspection at a later date. 

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3411 (Encapsulating Membrane)

 

Substrate:

Mild Steel Flange

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-11. 

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona solution allows the flange to be protected and then accessed when required for maintenance or inspection. Traditional painting of the flange would leave it inaccessible and may not completely encasulate the flange potentially allowing corrosion to still occur.
