OVERVIEW

The fabricator, Eurofab, required a very quick turnaround time with 25 years life expectancy for the internal/external protection of a number of large 48″ pipe spools for Peterhead Power Station.

CHALLENGE

The client required a coating system that would last at least 25 years and could be applied very quickly to the internal/external of large 48″ spools.

SOLUTION

Two coats of Epo-chem™ RA 564 solvent-free epoxy system @ 500µ per coat by airless spray was applied to both internal and externals of the spools.

Total DFT Internal: 1,000µ
Total DFT External: 1,000µ

OUTCOME

Epo-chem™ RA 564, when applied at such high thickness, would offer a complete corrosion protection for minimum of 25 years. The system has excellent impact and abrasion resistance as well as very high gloss. The contract was completed on time and within budget to the total satisfaction of the client.

BENEFITS

• Solvent-free
• No major delays to programme
