A Race Against the Clock

Jul 21, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

A shipping company asked Corrocoat Hellas to repair and refurbish a 900mm diameter condenser tube cover where an epoxy coating had failed. The cover was abrasive blast cleaned in accordance with ISO8501-1 Sa2½, high pressure water washed and then blasted for a second time to ensure the full removal of the original coating. This revealed significant corrosion and meant a rebuild of the cover and division plates was required. This work was completed using laminating techniques and Corroglass 600 series materials.

As a result, the cover was restored to a better-than-new condition within the 48 hour time period stipulated by the vessel’s tight schedule and the satisfied customer found it hard to believe that it was the same cover that had been delivered to Corrocoat just two days earlier.
