Water & Waste

For over 40 years, Corrocoat has successfully completed projects for nearly all the major UK water companies.

With such a rich heritage in this industry, we can offer both expert advice and high-grade coatings. Whether it’s erosion, corrosion, chemical attacks or mechanical damage, Corrocoat can provide long-term protection for all kinds of components.

Our Fluiglide system is a prime example. It’s been researched and developed to improve pump efficiency and therefore reduce energy costs, saving huge sums of money for businesses working in water & waste.

US122: Abrasion Damaged Pipe-spools

Numerous pipe-spools in an anaerobic digester feed system had suffered severe abrasion due to the nature of the material carried. This material had caused damage to all the internal surfaces and had burst through flange necks. Click to read more. 

US123: Seawater Filtration Vessel

A coarse seawater filtration vessel required protection against constant exposure to corrosive seawater when in service on an offshore oil platform.  Corrocoat had coated a sister vessel 2 years previously and the client was so impressed with it’s performance in service that they specified the same level of protection for this vessel.
