In thecase of 7200, a minimum curetemperature would be 5degrees Celsius at best. At anatmospheric temperature of 5degrees Celsius and on steel atthe same temperature, it maytake a minimum of 24 hoursbefore the product is cured</p><p>enough to handle whichsometimes is not concurrent withthe schedule of the pipelineconstruction. In circumstanceswhere the cure time of the epoxycoating needs to be acceleratedthe addition of heat from anoutside source is commonlyused. Before we continue onwith that subject it is importantto remember:</p><p>Protal 7200 is a preferredcoating because of a fewgood reasons:</p><p>1. Good long track record.2. Performs under high operating</p><p>temperatures.3. A great deal of independent </p><p>test data.4. Ease of application/Contractor </p><p>friendly.5. Strong technical field support </p><p>and customer service.6. Competitive Pricing.</p><p>In Canada pre-heating thepipe is the most commonly usedmethod to speed up the curetime of the 7200 and is typicallydone by two methods which areoutlined below with the prosand cons of each.</p><p>Propane TorchA portable propane tank andtiger torch is used to blast aflame onto the bare pipeline steelincreasing the temperature priorto hand applying the 7200.Pros Inexpensive Relatively light weight and </p><p>easy to handle Technically easy to operateCons Fire hazard Inconsistent heating of the pipe Potential to burn the existing </p><p>mainline coating May produce rust blooms on </p><p>the prepared surface (SSPC SP-10 - NACE 2 or SIS 05 59 00-1967 Sa 212 is required)</p><p>Coating Pipe Joint Weldswith Denso Epoxy inSub-Zero TemperaturesIn many parts of the world coating pipelines in the field inbelow freezing temperatures is not an issue; this is not thecase in Canada and in Western Canada five months of theyear typically average below freezing temperatures. Duringthese five months many large diameter pipelines are builtwhich require protective coatings that are applied on siteand Denso Protal is a coating of choice. Propane torch.</p></li><li><p>LEADERS IN CORROSION PREVENTION &amp; SEALING TECHNOLOGY</p><p>5</p><p>Corrosion Prevention for Pipeline - Canada </p><p>Heat Induction CoilAn induction coil has two maincomponents, a power supplyand a set of special cablesthrough which a high-frequencyalternating current is passedcreating an electromagneticfield. The cables are arranged ina special steel casing which isclamped over the pipe. Thepower supply units usually havean output of 120 kVA. Theelectromagnetic field excitesthe molecules of the steel raisingits energy level and causing thesteel material to heatfrom within.Pros No open flame Efficient Heats the pipe consistently </p><p>and evenlyCons Expensive Bulky - requires its own </p><p>separate vehicle Level of technical knowledge </p><p>to operate Mechanical - can break down</p><p>Both methods are usedalthough on larger projectsinduction coils are used almostexclusively.</p><p>By pre-heating the steel itallows the curing time to changefrom hours to minutes. TheProtal 7200 is immediatelyapplied after heating the pipeand after verifying the desiredtemperature has been achievedby using a temperature probe.Pre-determined pre-heat</p><p>temperatures range from 50-80degrees Celsius depending onthe current ambient temperatureand wind conditions,temperatures too low or too highcan damage the epoxy or causeit to cure improperly.</p><p>Denso works diligently withcontractors, inspectors andowner companies at a field levelto provide a QA/QC instrumentand is instrumental in ensuringthe 7200 will perform to the highlevel of excellence that it isrenowned for.</p><p>Country: Canada</p><p>Location: Not specified</p><p>Object: Pipeline</p><p>Problem: Corrosion Prevention</p><p>Productsolution: Denso Protal 7200</p><p>Project Summary</p><p>Product type:Buried Steel Coating</p><p>Setting up a heat induction coil</p></li><li><p>6</p><p>LEADERS IN CORROSION PREVENTION &amp; SEALING TECHNOLOGY</p><p>Corrosion Prevention for Marine Piles - Scotland </p><p>Country: Scotland </p><p>Location: McInroys Point</p><p>Object: Steel Legs</p><p>Problem: Corrosion Prevention</p><p>Productsolution: SeaShield 2000 FD</p><p>Project Summary</p><p>Product type: Sub Sea /Splash Zone Coating</p><p>SeaShield Protection for NewClyde Berthing StructuresThe SeaShield 2000 FD System was specified by consultantsArch Henderson LLP to give additional protection to a numberof legs on the new berthing structures constructed by GeorgeLeslie Ltd for Western Ferries (Clyde) Ltd at McInroys Point,Gourock and at Hunters Quay, Dunoon.

The coating exhibitsexcellent cathodic disbondmentresults of 4 mm @ 150F (65C).Another benefit is high impactand abrasion resistance fordirectional drill applications.Furthermore, the extremely fastcure makes it ideal for tie-ins andholiday repairs. Test results withindependent labs and oil &amp; gascompanies have proved to besuperior to other liquid coatings.</p><p>Unlike FBE, which requiresexpensive and heavy equipment,Protal 7200 only requires a brushor roller to apply. The costly riskof downtime due to equipmentfailure is eliminated. Due to thesecost savings, Protal 7200 is idealfor a variety of field or shopapplications including girthwelds, tie-ins, HDD applications,station piping, fittings andrepairs to FBE. </p><p>Protal 7200 Protects AllWeld Joints on Major GasTransmission PipelineProjectThe Kinder Morgan Mid-Continent Express Pipeline is arecently completed 42 inch and 36 inch 500-mile pipeline inwhich the girth welds, HDD weld joints and tie-in joints wereprotected with Protal 7200. Protal 7200 was selected as thecoating of choice for this project due mainly to its versatility tobe used in various applications. The product has outstandingphysical properties and fast cure ability, which allowed thecontractors to use the same coating for the protection of allweld joints including girth welds, tie-ins and bore joints.</p><p>Country: United States of America</p><p>Location: South/Southwest USA</p><p>Object: Weld joint coating</p><p>Problem: Corrosion Prevention</p><p>Productsolution: Denso Protal 7200</p><p>Project Summary</p><p>Product type:Buried Steel Coating</p><p>Left: Pre-heating of weld joint prior to blasting.</p><p>Opposite pictures:</p><p>Top: Applying Protal 7200 at 50 mils on 42 inchdiameter joint for a directional drill. </p><p>Bottom: Applying Protal 7200 by brush at 25 mils on a 42 inch diameter girth weld.</p></li><li><p>9</p><p>LEADERS IN CORROSION PREVENTION &amp; SEALING TECHNOLOGY</p><p>Corrosion Prevention for Pipeline - United States of America </p></li><li><p>10</p><p>LEADERS IN CORROSION PR...</p></li></ul>
