Belzona to show CUI coating at Offshore Europe
Belzona 5841 coating
Belzona Polymerics will be launching its Belzona 5841 at Offshore Europe.
Belzona 5841 is part of a range of coatings for the repair and protection of metal surfaces which suffer from Corrosion under Insulation (CUI).
The solvent-free coating can be applied directly to surfaces operating between 30-80C (86-176F), with minimal surface preparation, avoiding production downtime.
It expands the current online application temperature cover of Belzona CUI products to 5C-150C (41-302F) offering protection to systems operating between -40 and 200C (140 to 392F).
Its adhesive- and corrosion-resistant properties ensure extended life of the asset and minimal inspection requirements.
Once application has been completed, the asset can be reinsulated with minimum delay.
Applications for 5841 include: pipework, vessels, columns, heat exchangers, strippers and hot wells.
Belzona is offering a solution for the prevention of corrosion and future deterioration in splash zones.
A customer with a view to switching an offshore asset from oil to gas production has asked Belzona Polymerics to protect nozzles from the resulting accelerated erosion rates.
Belzona's polymer technology gives the oil and gas industry vessel-coating systems which are suitable for use at temperatures up to 180C.
Ithaca Energy has selected the Matrikon-powered digital well performance monitor (WPM) from Honeywell Process Solutions to help monitor the operational performance of its Athena oilfield in the North Sea.
Sensotech has introduced its Liquisonic measuring technology, which is designed to optimise the manufacturing process related to plant security, product quality and operating costs.
