Design and mode of operation for advanced corrosion protection systems

In the September edition of Pipelines International, DENSO’s Michael Schad explained a variety of coating technologies available to the industry to protect pipelines against corrosion, including factory-and field-applied coatings, tape systems and shrinking materials. Here, Mr Schad further discusses the long-term experience of these protective materials and the considerations required when selecting the right corrosion protection.

Corrosion protective coatings: rehabilitation of buried steel pipelines

In 1595, the oldest known industrial pipeline in the world was constructed in Austria. It transported saline solution for 40 km from Hallstadt to Ebensee. At that time, rehabilitation was a relatively simple affair – as the pipeline was made of 13,000 tree trunks, one only had to cut down a tree, hollow it out, and replace the defect section.

Going with the flow: internal coatings (expanded version)

Thin film epoxy coatings have long been known to reduce the internal roughness, and hence the friction factor, of natural gas flow lines. A new generation of high solids materials provide environmentally sustainable solutions without increased coating thickness or loss of performance.
