This paper aims to present a novel class of pipeline protective lining materials that provide erosion-corrosion resistance combined with negligible wear to spray equipment. These coatings have been formulated with a blend of thermoplastic fillers rather than the traditional ceramic fillers used for erosion resistance.
Organic coating systems for protection against internal corrosion of pipelines are important to maintain integrity of oil and gas infrastructure. The present investigation focuses on evaluation of protective properties of a set of multiphase coating systems in the environment encountered inside of off-shore natural gas pipelines.
This paper summarizes the experimental findings, discusses the effects of a typical bitumen-water slurry solution on the wear performance of polyurethanes and neoprenes and proposes a mathematical relationship between Coriolis (low stress, low angle abrasion & scouring) wear to the relevant physical properties in the virgin state of polyurethanes and neoprenes.
