BELZONA® 1591 FAST TRACK PROTECTION
Industry: Oil & Gas (OILG)
Application: TCC-Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)
Substrate: Carbon steel
Customer Location: Oil producer
Application Date: April 1997
Problem: There was insufficient time available to construct vessels with internal metal cladding.
- One of the separators mounted in applicators workshop on rotator to make application easier.
- All exposed areas of vessels are coated, including nozzles.
- Completed application.
The Oil/Gas Separators (Production and Test) and Flare Knock-Out vessels for installation onboard a Floating Oil Production and Storage vessel (an FPSO) being fast track built for operation in the North Sea.
Application was carried out at a Specialist applicators workshop in accordance with Belzona Know-How Leaflet TCC-5. They were then transported for fitting out and installation on the FPSO.
This project is to develop a small oil field and so costs and particularly timing were critical. Belzona® 1591 was seen as the only coating available to protect the equipment at the operating temperatures expected (up to 150°C).
