RUST GRIP® and ENAMO GRIP on Refineries, Chevron Pacific Indonesia
Oil and Gas Refinery
Project Problem: Chevron Pacific Indonesia, PT faced various problems at one of their oil- and gas refinery locations in Indonesia. Because of high temperatures, high humidity, and lack of consistent maintenance, most of the pipelines and storage tanks were affected by severe corrosion problems. The location needed to be in operation for at least 10 more years and rebuilding the site was far too expensive. The site was also located at a remote area where structural maintenance was expensive and not a real option. Besides this, all surfaces were being affected by sunlight, heat, chemical substances, humidity, and dirt.
Coating Solution: Clean all surfaces, coat with Rust Grip®, and overcoat with Enamo Grip as top layer. Rust Grip® will attach on the surface and stop further corrosion problems. Enamo Grip will give a smooth and durable finish, which prevents moisture, sunlight, and dirt from affecting the surface. This coating system guarantees a maintenance-free, durable solution which can resist all surface threatening influences.
Results: After application, all treated surfaces were smooth, free of rust and dirt, and appeared as if they were new. The corrosion process was stopped and surfaces were not being affected by sunlight, dirt, and humidity anymore. Production process was back in full operation.
