Carboline Co. has completed testing of a new dual cryogenic and fire-protection system that includes its new Carbotherm 730 coating.

The system is designed to help prevent structural steel failure during the brutal exposure extremes of an oil-and-gas fire in a freezing environment—a temperature whipsaw ranging from 2000°F/1093°C to -238°F/-150°C.

 The system is designed to protect structural steel assets subjected to polar temperature extremes.

The system is designed to protect structural steel assets subjected to polar temperature extremes.

The system is intended for use on structural steel, vessels, piping and ductwork in LNG terminals, LPG storage facilities, refineries and petrochemical plants.

2 Coatings

The system uses the new Carbotherm 730 as an underlayment for Carboline’s established Thermo-Lag 3000.

Carbotherm 730 is a 100% solids, epoxy syntactic insulating coating; Thermo-Lag 3000 is an industrial-grade epoxy intumescent fireproofing.

The combination of the products provides a 1-4 hour fire rating based on UL 1709 or BS-476 hydrocarbon certifications.

Protection in ‘Polar Opposites’

It’s a system “that allows us to protect steel during exposures in two rapidly changing environments that are polar opposites in temperature,” said Dallas Finch, Vice President of Global Research & Development.

Adds David Wolf, Vice President of Sales: “The investment in the assets involved in the storage and processing of liquid natural gas and other highly flammable chemicals is costly.

“This new system will help minimize damages to these assets and provide life safety to plant personnel. This minimizes down time, expensive repair or replacement costs, and saves lives.”

Testing

All cryogenic and hydrocarbon fire testing of the system has been witnessed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in accordance with North American and international standards, Carboline said in a release.

Founded in 1947, St. Louis-based Carboline is a global manufacturer and supplier of high-performance coatings, linings and fireproofing products to protect steel and concrete substrates from corrosion and fire damage.
