Belzona® 'S Proven Performance In Separator Protection



Oil & Gas (OILG)



Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)


Customer Location:

International Oil Producer


Application Date:



Application Situation:

Production Oil/Gas Separator



Previous experience indicated that the lower 1/3rd of this new vessel would be subjected to sand erosion and Sulphate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) attack.



Belzona® 1321



Duplex steel


Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet TCC-5. A three-coat system of Belzona® 1321 was applied as the operating temperature was 85°C.


Belzona Facts:

Despite the use of corrosion resistant Duplex, SRB attack and sand erosion induced by the jet wash system in the base of the tank was expected to cause shell damage without protection. Previously used glass flake systems had been unable to resist the sand erosion and required regular refurbishment necessitating hugely expensive interruptions to oil production. Since application the vessel has been routinely inspected and the coating is still in excellent condition and no un-scheduled shut-downs have been incurred.
