OVERVIEW

Heavily corroded steel pipes and flanges required a corrosion protection system with minimal surface preparation and no disruption to a busy production area.

CHALLENGE

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.

OUTCOME

BENEFITS

• 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
