application Using TSA to Protect Pipelines from Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

In the petrochemical industry Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) in pipeline systems consumes a significant percentage of the maintenance budget. A large portion of this money is spent on expensive items such as external piping inspection, insulation removal and re-installation, painting and pipe replacements. CUI prevention strategies provide long term and reliable prevention of CUI that […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with painting

Painting is a widely used method of protecting steelwork (and other materials) from corrosion. Most paints are organic (polymer) bases with added metal particles, corrosion inhibiting compounds or inert filler materials. They may be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying to suitably prepared (grit blasted) surfaces. Protective paint systems are multi-layer comprising a priming coat, […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with electro plating

The most common method is deposition from aqueous solutions, many of which are toxic. During electro plating, water decomposes and hydrogen is deposited at the surface being plated. This will cause embrittlement of high strength steels unless they are heat treated immediately after plating. This is only partially effective in reversing the damage. Electro deposition […]
