Those in the composites industry will now find trusted brand names and products they love from Ashland under the new INEOS Composites umbrella, including Derakane™ Signia™ resins.
The petrochemical industry is used to adapting to changing markets and conditions, but with the current challenges of oil supply volatility and the COVID-19 epidemic, plants and operations are finding themselves needing to develop even more strategies for coping with rapid change.
The CP industry is incredibly dynamic with constant change in regulations, technology development, new products and best practices.
Over the past three decades, several methods have been introduced to measure and monitor corrosion. While many of these traditional methods, such as weight loss or spray test analysis, are quick and cost-effective, they can only offer a qualitative overview of the process.
Glass reinforced epoxy gaskets were a significant improvement over prior isolation technologies, such as phenolic gaskets, which were in use since the early 1900’s. GRE has now been used to isolate pipelines in a broad range of industries for close to 50 years.
Owens Corning® FOAMGLAS® Insulation
The selection of the proper insulation system is an important factor when designing facilities. Learn the benefits of FOAMGLAS® insulation to help limit corrosion under insulation.
Integrated Global Services
Around 1995 a handful of engineers addressed that problem and took high velocity thermal spray technology into the field. It was successfully deployed in the downstream oil and gas industry, originally in South Africa, and in the late 1990s this technology went global, being adopted by multinational energy corporations.
Owners of assets in harsh environments know that corrosion is a perennial adversary and demand the highest quality in protection. Traditionally, inorganic zinc-rich coatings (IOZ) have been the preferred primers for these environments, thanks to their enhanced anticorrosive properties.
