The Best Way to Protect Your Pipeline from Abrasion Damage

Protecting the exterior surface of underground pipelines from abrasion damage due to rocks, boulders, and above-ground traffic and equipment requires an abrasion-resistant outer layer or coating. An effective way to ensure an abrasion-resistant steel pipe involves applying a protective layer, like Polyguard IRO™ (Impact Resistant Outerwrap) and IRO™ HD (Heavy Duty) products.

Understanding Pipeline Corrosion Prevention and the Best Products

Pipeline corrosion prevention aims to protect the world’s extensive network of buried pipelines. Without corrosion protection, pipes can lose their integrity, lowering mechanical strength through the development of exterior cracks and holes, which can lead to failures. A corrosion prevention coating system must resist degradation over time and conduct cathodic protection currents should the coating […]

How to Prevent Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) can trigger catastrophic failures and massive maintenance costs. CUI corrosion affects many industries, and it challenges oil, gas, and petrochemicals tremendously, because they must use insulation to save energy, protect workers from high temperatures, and control process temperatures. Annually, corrosion costs about $2.2 trillion, over 3 percent of the world’s GDP, […]

What Are the Best Pipeline Corrosion Protection Methods?

In a residential home, corroded pipes are a serious problem. In commercial and industrial applications, pipeline corrosion is a nightmare. Pipeline corrosion occurs when old metal pipes rust from exposure to water or moisture from the environment. Corroded pipelines can damage the quality of whatever they’re carrying, from water to oil. When pipelines are damaged […]
