BELZONA PROTECTS HOT PIPEWORK
Industry: Chemical & Petrochemical (PETR)
Application: TCC-Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)
Substrate: Mild Steel
Customer Location: Refinery, Germany
Application Date: September 2010
Belzona® 5851 (HA-Barrier)
Problem: Original paint system was failing allowing pipework to corrode. New protection required to be applied whilst system remained operational.
- Surface preperation underway
- Temperature reading of the hot pipe
- Application of coating
- Finished application
Hot pipework (aprox. 110°C) in the refinery
Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet TCC-5. As the pipe was in hot service only minimal surface preparation could be carried out to remove the exsisting coating. Once the pipe was returned to a sound substrate, the product was applied by brush to the hot pipework.
Although this was a successful trial the major work which was intended has yet to proceed.
