Steel Pipes & Flanges Refurbishment
Client: Marathon Oil
Scope: Steel Pipes & Flanges Refurbishment
Date: March 2009
Products: RL 500PF
Heavily corroded steel pipes and flanges required a corrosion protection system with minimal surface preparation and no disruption to a busy production area.
Working in a very restrictive area, minimal surface preparation, extreme weather conditions and limited timescale, combined with live hot pipe work.
Two coats of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF wet & rust tolerant epoxy system was applied @ 150µ per coat by brush and roller.
The major technical benefits offered by utilising this system ensured that the work was carried out safely, on time and with no delays to the programme.
• No blasting
• No delays
• Application carried out on hot pipe work without shutdown
• Reduced H&S and Fire Precaution
• Reduced cost of plant and equipment
• Chemco system will protect the steel substrate in excess of 10 years
