Field coating of pipe includes surface preparation and application of coatings at the girth weld during installation of new pipe or replacement of existing coatings after excavation of existing pipe. Similar to any project involving coatings on steel, quality control of surface preparation and coating installation is paramount to the integrity of the pipeline. This webinar will describe the common methods of field surface preparation, as well as the quality control procedures and instrumentation associated with surface preparation inspection. The webinar also describes common methods of coating application in the field, along with the quality control procedures and instrumentation associated with verifying the proper installation of protective coating materials. Final quality control inspections performed prior to backfilling will also be described.
