Nansulate Coating Specified for Oil Refinery

Monday, October 11, 2010

Comment | More

A thermal insulation and corrosion prevention coating manufactured by Industrial Nanotech Inc. has been selected for a pipeline project with Portugal’s largest oil company.

The project specifies Nansulate Translucent PT thermal insulation and asset protection coating for the project at Galp Energia's Porto Refinery. The coatings contractor for the project is Prozinco Construction and Maintenance.

“We have been in contact with Galp Energia for several months and provided them details related to the performance of our patented technology for thermal insulation and corrosion control for oil and gas tanks, pipelines and equipment,“ said Francesca Crolley, Industrial Nanotech’s V.P. of Business Development.

Nansulate coatings are suitable for many types of environments, Crolley said, because of their resistance to moisture absorption and ability to retain their insulating ability over time without degradation.

Specifications

The application consists of 20 coats of Nansulate Translucent PT for insulation to reduce surface temperature from 100C to approximately 30C. The overall dry film thickness of the application will be approximately 1,000 microns.

Crolley said Nansulate technology was “created specifically for these types of applications; to provide a solution to corrosion under insulation (CUI), while offering excellent weathering capabilities and performance attributes that are not typically found in other types of insulation.”

Galp Energia SGPS SA, Portugal's biggest oil company, plans to invest 5.2 billion euros ($6.5 billion) through 2013 as it develops projects including Tupi, the biggest oil discovery in the Americas in three decades. Nansulate coatings are currently included in an additional project bid which is pending award, for fuel storage tanks at the same refinery.

Industrial Nanotech Inc. develops and commercializes sustainable nanotechnology applications worldwide. The company’s Nansulate product line includes industrial, residential, agricultural and solar thermal insulation coatings.
