Coating Protects Immersion Equipment

MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2014


A new epoxy coating offers high-temperature protection for oil and gas production equipment and other equipment operating under continuous immersion, Belzona announced.

Belzona 1523 is a two-part spray-applied epoxy coating for equipment in continuous water and hydrocarbon mixture immersion at temperatures up to 140°C (284°F).

The company says the coating can also withstand steam-out processes up to 210°C (410°F) and rapid depressurization.

Application Features

According to the company, the coating provides corrosion and chemical resistance and comes in light colors for easy inspection in dark vessels.

Applied using heated airless spray equipment, the two-coat application doesn't require flash blasting between coatings, Belzona says.

The solvent-free product can be applied in confined spaces and cures at room temperature. No separate post-cure is needed, because the product's post-cure mechanism activates at service temperatures, according to the company.
