OVERVIEW

High temperature ducting located at the Longannet Power Station required a new protective coating system capable of being applied and operate at high temperatures.

CHALLENGE

The ducting would be operating at 150ºC during application. There could be no operational shutdown and no grit blasting was permissible.

OUTCOME

The project was completed on time, within budget and to the complete satisfaction of all concerned.

BENEFITS

• Wet & rust tolerant properties of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF
• No grit blasting
• No operational shutdown
• No disruption to others working in close proximity
