Corrosion Protection Selected for Saudi Arabia Refinery

MONDAY, JULY 15, 2019

Global coatings company Sherwin-Williams was recently selected to protect oil and gas bulk valves at Saudi Aramco’s Ras Tantura refinery. Sherwin’s Heat-Flex Hi-Temp 1200 product was the only coating protection chosen to fight corrosion at the plant. The announcement was made via an emailed press release.

“We were aware of the challenges associated with bulk valve packages for these projects and our R&D team came up with a versatile solution for our customer to provide the necessary level of protection with efficiencies in time and cost of using only one product,” said Emre Karapinar, Project Development Manager for Sherwin-Williams.

In collaboration with contractor Tecnicas Reunidas, Sherwin chose its next-generation single-component under insulation solution for high-heat applications, ideal for protecting bulk valves for all process conditions and temperatures.

The product also ensures continuous operations, produces lower volatile organic compounds, high corrosion resistance and enhanced durability in reducing damage from shop to field.

Approved under Saudi Aramco engineering standard SAES-H-101V / System APCS-11C as a high-temperature-resistant CUI coating for oil and gas projects in the Middle East, Hi-Temp 1200 is independently tested, certified and doesn’t require the use of inorganic primers.

Hi-Temp 1200 may be applied directly to steel or stainless-steel surfaces for coatings under insulation but can also be used on cryogenic equipment and insulated or uninsulated prepared steel surfaces. Ideally, the product is designed for chemical facilities, refineries, power plants, offshore and marine industries in addition to pulp and paper industries.
