Improving natural-gas pipe flow efficiency is the promise of three new epoxy lining products from Carboline Co.

High-performance Polyclad 951, Polyclad 952, and Polyclad 956 are designed to "act as a flowliner, creating a smooth surface on the interior of pipes to increase flow efficiency and reduce energy cost of transporting natural gas," according to St. Louis, MO-based Carboline.


The Polyclad linings can improve gas flow and fight corrosion, reports Carboline.

The coatings create a smooth, low-friction surface that can increase pipe flow efficiency up to six percent, according to Carboline. The linings also help to keep gas pure and prevent corrosion during pipe storage, the company says.

The Polyclad linings can withstand temperatures of up to 248°F (120°C) in dry service; offer excellent chemical resistance; and can withstand pigging operations, the manufacturer reports.

"Using these flowliners will significantly reduce energy needed to transport natural gas and is critical for pipeline performance while greatly increasing revenue in pipeline operations,” said Mitch Connor, Pipeline Market Manager.

Carboline has been a global manufacturer and supplier of high-performance coatings for the industrial, commercial, and architectural industries since 1947.
