Pipeline protection and rehabilitation

In the USA alone pipeline corrosion is estimated to cost transmission pipeline operators as much as $7.00B per annum. Corrosion in general >$200.00BDr. Thompson Phd – Pipeline Research Council, USA

The natural phenomenon of corrosion is every Operators nightmare and the constant battle remains endless to keep pipelines in good operating condition.

To replicate factory conditions out in the field is almost Impossible and more often the conventional epoxy coatings are not at fault but factor in poor applications and surface prep in extreme environmental conditions where chlorides are almost always present will result in accelerated coating breakdown.

But if we simply remove 1 of the corrosion triangles elements then we stop or arrest corrosion.

Basics remain the same, trends change…

Old technique…

Or it can be this simple…

( Create an impermeable barrier that adheres to ST2 = removing the corrosion triangle function )
