Oil & Gas
Since the late 1980s, Belzona has provided the Oil and Gas industry with solutions to the most difficult problems where conventional solutions have failed. Downtime in this leading edge technology industry can result in millions of dollars lost in production. Engineers in the industry, responsible for specifying materials, are continually searching for ways to reduce costs and increase performance without sacrificing reliability.
At the front-end of every Oil or Gas production system are the separation stages where the aggressive production fluids take their expensive toll on the Separation Vessels. Oil and Gas producers recognized that conventional internal coatings can not stand up to the effects of erosion/corrosion accelerated by sand entrainment at the elevated temperatures and pressures. Belzona 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal) is identified as a product that can withstand these hazards satisfying the requirements of these companies.
As well, with the ever increasing demand for higher production levels from marginal fields, the trend is toward higher operating temperatures and pressures within separation systems. Belzona has responded to this demand with our specialized high temperature/explosive decompression resistant coating systems that have a proven track record in service.
