Metallisation-MK73-flamespray-system TSA Process

Using TSA to Protect Pipelines from Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

Reason for use: Cost effective corrosion protection against aggressive corrosion under insulation (CUI) Related Products MK73-FS Wire Flame View Product Deflected Flame Spray Extension View Product In the petrochemical industry Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) in pipeline systems consumes a significant percentage of the maintenance budget. A large portion of this money is spent on expensive items such as external piping inspection, insulation removal and re-installation, painting and pipe replacements. CUI prevention strategies provide long term and reliable prevention of CUI…

Railway coal wagons

Reason for use: Corrosion protection and abrasion resitance Download PDF Go to the Process Page 100 tonne coal-carrying hopper wagons in New South Wales have been metal sprayed to protect against corrosive attack following the abrasive action of the coal loading and unloading processes. Corrosion protection Research into the problem determined a metal-sprayed zinc coating of 200 microns (0.008”) thickness was most suitable. The work was carried out at the works of Goninan Limited, the wagon manufacturers, using two Metallisation…
