Gas desulphurisation plants have been in use for over 35 years but the wet scrubbing process results in highly corrosive conditions in plant and flue gas ducting. the problem is made worse as a number of different aggressive corrosion conditions occur and therefore several protection products and application skills are required. We have developed a number of products to provide long-term corrosion protection in gas plants and over the years Corrocoat Benelux have used these on a number of contracts.
For Waste Management and Renewable Energy Companies -HVC in Dordrecht and AVR Rotterdam, large flues from waste burning plant have been protected with Polyglass VEF, a glass flake vinyl ester acrylic co-polymer which offers high levels of resistance in chemical environments within the full pH range.
At a sludge treatment facility operated by SNB in Holland, and industrial gas manufacturer, Air Liquide in France, Corrothane XT has been used on flue duct protection contracts. This cold cured vinyl ester hybrid was developed for coating steel where, as in these cases, high working temperatures are experienced.
All these installations are audited regularly and time has proved that Corrocoat products continue to provide the required protection and will do so for many years to come.
