11:30 Vessel Internal Metal Cladding with HVTS Technology: A Cost Effective Onsite Process Equipment Protection Solution for Corrosion Mitigation and Asset Life Extension
- On-site, in-situ corrosion protection of critical process equipment with corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) cladding: Advanced NiCrMo alloy and high velocity thermal spray (HVTS) processes
- Stopping a wide range of corrosion and/or erosion conditions, even under severe service: Maintaining vessel wall thickness, pressure boundary and asset integrity to extend design life so that replacement is no longer required
- Examining prior limitations of thermal spray technology: Advanced alloy modification to eliminate porosity, reduce residual stresses, inflight oxidation and shut down any corrosion path to the base metal
- The development of advanced conveyance technology facilitates: Rapid onsite, in-situ field application of the system, rapid mobilization and efficient project execution
