A large process vessel, operational temperature at around 55ºC, required to be completely refurbished without any disruption to other contractors working adjacent to this area. It also had to be carried out in a very tight timescale in cold and very damp conditions during the plant shutdown.
Working within a very tight timescale, severe pitting and corrosion, high humidity, confined space and other contractors working adjacent to the vessel refurbishment added to the difficulty of the project.
First coat of Epo-chem™ RA 564 solvent-free glassflake epoxy system @ 500µ DFT by airless spray. All deep pitting were filled with Ceram-chem™ RH 500 solvent-free, ceramic epoxy putty. Second coat of Epo-chem™ RA 564 solvent-free glassflake epoxy system @ 500µ by airless spray. Total DFT: 1,000µ
The major technical benefits offered by utilising this complete system ensured that the work was carried out on time, within budget, with no major delays to the programme and no impact on other contractors working in close proximity.
• No delays
• Reduced cost of plant and equipment
• Reduced H&S and Fire Precaution
• Chemco system will protect the steel substrate
