Coatings and Linings for the Oil and Gas Industry
Belzona epoxy-based metal repair composites, coatings and linings are specifically formulated to repair and protect equipment in the Oil and Gas industry.
Belzona's wide range of epoxy-based metal repair composites and high temperature coatings and linings has been used in the Oil and Gas industry since the late 1980s. Our materials are specifically designed to provide outstanding erosion and corrosion protection and chemical resistance for equipment operating at high temperatures and pressures. Belzona offers cost effective solutions, which reduce downtime and labour costs while eliminating the need for equipment replacement.
Internal and external protection of process vessels
Separators and absorbers suffering from erosion, corrosion and chemical attack can be repaired using Belzona elevated (up to 90oC) and high temperature (90oC - 180oC) linings, designed to operate in immersed conditions. Other types of repairs such as reforming of corroded flange faces and repair and protection of small bore nozzles can be achieved using materials such as Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) and Belzona 1391 (Ceramic HT).
Storage tank and secondary containment area repair and protection
Belzona provides solutions for damaged storage tanks including emergency leak sealing and cold plate bonding, using fast cure epoxy materials that will eliminate the need for hot work, therefore reducing health and safety concerns. Tank bases can be sealed with our solvent-free coatings such as Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane) that will allow trapped moisture to escape whilst preventing water ingress at the tank base for long-term protection.
Concrete floors and walls of secondary containment can be repaired and protected using the range of Belzona concrete repair composites and coatings, which will greatly reduce downtime. Concrete repair materials such as Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz) are ideal for the repair and resurfacing of damaged secondary containment areas. Epoxy coatings such as Belzona 4311 (Magma CR1) and Belzona 4341 (Magma CR4) are designed to provide long-term chemical protection against a wide range of substances including acids and alkalis even at high temperatures.
Pipework repair and protection
Pipes in the Oil and Gas industry suffer from erosion and corrosion including corrosion under insulation (CUI), which can result in loss of containment. Protective epoxy coatings such as Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade) can be used to provide corrosion protection preventing loss of wall thickness.
In order to seal leaks, plate bonding can be implemented using Belzona metal repair composites as bonding agents. Additionally, Belzona offers pipe insulation protection using fire retardant Belzona 3211 (Lagseal) which is easy to use and it will bond to almost any surface. Belzona SuperWrap is an ISO and ASME compliant repair solution, which is ideally suited for weakened or holed pipes. It can be easily applied in-situ eliminating the need for traditional cut and weld hot work.
Risers repair and protection
Corrosion resistant repair composites and coatings can be used to repair rubber sheath and pitting corrosion damage and will ensure long-term erosion and corrosion protection of risers. Belzona's flexible sealing solutions such as Belzona 2111 (D&A Hi-Build Elastomer) can be used for repairs, creation of fillets and rubber rebonding. Belzona's surface-tolerant protective coatings such as Belzona 5831 (ST-Barrier) can be applied in-situ on splash zones and below the waterline.
Belzona provides cold bonding solutions as an alternative to welding for deteriorated equipment such as decks, tanks, pipes and flanges, which can be safely and easily carried out in situ. Metal repair composites allow a rapid restoration of the damaged areas such as pipework or vessels, while epoxy coatings such as Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade) can be injected to return strength to larger areas such as lay down decks.
Our metal repair composites, high temperature coatings and linings are suitable for other areas, including:
- Fenders and hoses
- Heat exchangers
- Seawater filters
- Centrifugal and vacuum pumps
- Chemical containment
- Separator vessels
