Chemicals coatings protect systems against aggressive media
Product-contacting parts of chemicals systems must resist great challenges. Corrosive and abrasive media and high reaction temperatures put a great strain on the system parts. This would increase wear and clearly reduce service lives without the corresponding protection. Coatings increase the corrosion and temperature resilience of components, thereby extending service life. Purity plays an important role for chemical processes as well. Even the smallest contaminations by rust particles can reduce efficiency and influence the end product's quality.
Main benefits of coatings for the chemicals and petrochemical industries
Chemicals factories process extremely aggressive media. The facilities must be protected against these with special systems such as polysiloxanes or thermal metal spray systems. They help economically and ecologically service pipelines, tank facilities and containers. They clearly reduce maintenance and repair effort by protecting them against corrosion in the long term. Outer coating and inner coating alike are very important in pipeline construction. Pipes in which aggressive media flow specifically require high-quality protection to achieve sufficient service lives. Since coatings significantly increase the resilience of cost-efficient steels, they help avoid the use of more expensive metals. This saves a lot of costs. Product loss from disintegration of the workpiece and adhesions is reduced, and contamination of the medium in the pipe by rust particles that would form during materials disintegration is prevented.
