To meet the increasing demand for petroleum products worldwide, more oil and gas infrastructure is being built. The economic impact of corrosion and its degradation of oil and gas infrastructure, such as pipelines, oil rigs and towers, represents a significant cost to the industry.
The combination of numerous factors makes oil, gas, and refinery equipment vulnerable to a variety of corrosion phenomena that can lead to serious accidents. The physicochemical characteristics of crude oils, natural gas, and fuels increase their corrosiveness. Other elements, such as water (cooling water, boiler feed water, extinguishing water, seawater), steam, different gases and chemicals also play a role in the corrosion of equipment at oil, gas, and refining units.
Oil and gas pipelines are integral to the industry. Whilst non-ferrous materials such as fiberglass and polypropylene can be used in non-critical, low pressure applications, most petroleum pipelines are constructed from metal. Whether buried or on the surface, all metal pipelines are exposed to a range of physical, climatic, and chemical environments that can cause corrosion.
Also vulnerable to corrosion are the mounting and bracing structures that support and guide the oil or gas pipeline.
Thermal diffusion has been used for superior corrosion protection in the oil and gas industry for decades.
ArmorGalv® is the only technology that combines corrosion protection, abrasion and wear resistance, anti-galling properties, with a guaranteed freedom from hydrogen embrittlement.
ArmorGalv® provides the oil and gas industry with a corrosion solution that enhances safety and efficiency and generates significant cost savings in long term continuity of operations and maintenance.
Our corrosion protection can be used on numerous materials within the oil and gas industry, such valves, fasteners, cable trays, ancillary equipment, and parts for areas where hydrogen embrittlement is an issue.
