INCREASING ASSET LIFESPAN


Maintenance in the energy industry is a costly challenge for asset owners; as a result, abrasion and corrosion resistant coatings for metal components are in high demand, particularly offshore locations where environmental factors heavily influence the lifespan of metal components


As an example, offshore windfarms are exposed to constant salt water and salt mist causing corrosion of moving and serviceable metal parts, thus reducing the operational efficiency and longevity of the installation.


ULTIMATE SOLUTION


The ultimate solution is a thermoplastic coating which encapsulates without adherence allowing moving parts to continue moving and access for maintenance able to take place. Thermoplastic coatings make maintenance in the field more affordable for asset owners.


Oxifree TM198 is an organic, patent protected thermoplastic coating which lasts several years and is proven to extend the life cycle of components and reduce maintenance costs by at least 40%. It protects metal components from corrosion and contamination, acting as a barrier for sand abrasion, dust ingress, galvanic pitting and atmospheric corrosion. The product has had extensive use for protection of metallic equipment in marine and offshore oil & gas platform environments from corrosion.


CASE STUDY 1


Take for instance an aging energy plant in the Dutch Continental Shelf. The plant was experiencing extensive corrosion due to its coastal location. Salt, water and changing temperatures were allowing corrosion to develop on the connections right across the plant. TM198 was applied to 204 connections in total keeping the plant both operational and safe.


All work was applied with Oxifree Polymelt ATEx/IECEx Zone 2 rated equipment, crucial for hazardous environments and no shutdown was required. A comprehensive HSE/Asset integrity solution.


CASE STUDY 2


In another coastal location, exposed bolts were causing a maintenance issue for an energy supplier, creating additional maintenance workloads and costs. TM198 was applied for protection removing the need for replacements and eliminating unnecessary expenditure.


Oxifree active anti-corrosion and contamination solutions will prolong the lifespan of asset components, reducing expenditure and the cost of both shutdowns and unscheduled maintenance caused by corrosion and accidental damage.
