Corrocoat USA design durable jet nozzles for a hydro-excavator

Corrocoat USA design durable jet nozzles for a hydro-excavator

Leading supplier of cement, ready mix concrete, mortars, screeds and aggregates, Cemex approached Corrocoat uSA to design a more durable nozzle than the urethane version presently used to pump silty water. The current nozzles show wear after just two weeks and ultimately fail in as little as four months. The time required to replace a nozzle and excessive fuel consumption meant that Cemex had a strong financial incentive to find a superior solution. Corrocoat USA made a cast of a new urethane nozzle from wax, which was then duplicated in aluminum as a mold. The...

HAVE WE MET BEFORE?

Corrocoat Japan was asked to service a raw water pump that they last serviced in 2011. At that time the vertical wet-pit volute pump had been in operation since 1993 without any servicing and as a result all the internal components were found to have deteriorated. A full refurbishment was carried out and the pump returned to service. The client, a major steel plant, had been very satisfied with the results and so seven years later, as part of a maintenance program, they called in Corrocoat to inspect and service the pump again. It operates in a very aggressive...

CORROCOAT SOUTH AFRICA SCALES NEW HEIGHTS

When Corrocoat SA was approached by Eskom Medupi Power Station – one of the world’s largest coal fired power plants - to provide corrosion protection for six stainless steel flue cans, they realised that this would be a major challenge. The cans were located at the top of Eskom’s chimney stacks, so all the work would have to be carried out 220m above ground. Their solution in this oxygen depleted environment where temperatures could reach 120°C.,was based on the use of Corrothane XT, which offers outstanding chemical resistance coupled with continuous protection...

AL SABAIEA TO THE RESCUE Al Sabaiea engineers were called to an emergency at the Kharafi National Power Station. A fibreglass pipe had suffered a major leak where the collar meets the flange section and required immediate repair in order to keep the power station running. After stemming the flow, hand and power tools were employed to remove a previous repair and prepare the pipe for remedial work. L600 was used to wet out fibreglass strips to repair and reinforce the area where the leak had occurred. Once cured, Polyglass 100 was applied to internal and external...

STAINLESS TANKS AND PIPE SPOOLS GET CORROGLASS AR4 TREATMENT

Corroserve was asked by uBH International, a world-leading manufacturer of tanks and containers, to recommend a coating system for the internal corrosion protection of 10 newly fabricated stainless steel tanks and 20 pipe spool sections. The equipment would be operating in aggressive conditions - carrying Sodium Hypochlorite at 15% maximum concentration at temperature ranges between – 20°C and 50°C. Sodium Hypochlorite is used for water purification in processes such as, bleaching, odour removal and water disinfection. As such, the coating recommended had to...

EXTENDED TRIALS PROVE POLYGLASS VEF’S BENEFITS AT ENERGY FROM WASTE FACILITY

A Japanese sewage treatment facility has invested in an anaerobic digestion system to create energy from waste. one of the major components of the system is a concentric digestion tank operating between 40 – 60°C with highly corrosive contents. Corrocoat Japan was asked to recommend a coating system to protect the internal surfaces of the tank in both immersed and non-immersed service situations. Trials were arranged with test samples installed in situ in real life conditions and the results proved to be extremely positive. The results, backed by the excellent...

Corrocoat SA Blaze a Trail in Corrosion Protection

Corrocoat sA worked with a steel fabricator who was supplying 1300 carbon steel pipes – ranging in size from Dn150 to Dn600 and up to 9m in length – to south Africa’s national Ports operator in Cape town. the pipes were to be part of a seawater firefighting system at a flammable tanker basin. the firefighting systems must be available for immediate use at all times while a tanker is docked to offload crude or load refined product. A very high level of corrosion protection and maintenance-free service life was therefore specified by the designers. Corrocoat SA...
