The Flare Stack required a corrosion protection to withstand temperatures of up to 120⁰C (250⁰F). The Flare Stack is approximately 1 m (3.2 ft) in diameter and 100 m (328.1 ft) in height.
The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-5. After a high pressure jet-wash, the surface was prepared with spin-blasting and followed by 3 coats of Belzona 1523. The spin spray application of approximately 300 L of product was monitored via screens.
A mock-up test was initially set-up at a location in Singapore, which was used to develop the setting up of the spin-spray equipment in order to determine the travel speed, number of passes and required film thickness, as well as to demonstrate how the application would be conducted during the shutdown.
