Pipe Refurbishment – Flotta Tank Terminal
Client: Talisman Energy (UK)
Scope: Pipe Refurbishment – Flotta Tank Terminal
Date: August 2008
Products: RL 500PF
Large number of pipe work with external coating damage to be refurbished without shut down, grit blasting or weather protection.
The harsh weather condition, no grit blasting, live pipe work in a very damp and wet condition added to the difficulties of the job.
A single coat of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF wet & rust tolerant epoxy primer finish system @ 200µ was applied by brush, roller and spray. Minimal or no surface preparation was carried out.
The technical benefits offered by this system ensured that the work was carried out on time, within budget and with no delays. Since this project has been completed, other similar areas within the terminal have been specified using Epo-chem™ RL 500PF.
• No blasting required
• Single coat application
• Application carried out in high humidity
• No delays to programme
• Reduced cost of plant and equipment
• Reduced H&S and Fire Precaution
• Chemco single coat system will protect the substrate in excess of 10 years
