There were oil pipelines and heat exchangers that need to be insulated, the operating temperature was equal to 220°C, the required surface temperature was 55°C. The customer was looking for a maintenance-free solution, due to the fact that the site was also located in a remote area where structural maintenance was expensive and not a real option.
The site where the project was completed was 100 meters pipeline (including heat exchangers and valves) measuring a total area of +/- 110 m². To achieve the rated level of heat losses and temperature reduction at the surface to 55°C, with the use of Graco equipment the HOT PIPE COATING was applied by spray with a thickness of 15mm.
