CORROSION PROTECTION

The properties of the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) Tite Liner provide excellent chemical, corrosion and erosion resistance for numerous oil and gas pipeline services. The use of the HDPE lining system often eliminates the need for costly chemical injection of both corrosion inhibitors and drag reducers. The hydraulic properties of smooth HDPE pipe are much better than that of new and old steel pipe. The Tite Liner solution provides a corrosion barrier that often exceeds the design life of new pipelines. Tite Liner can usually rehabilitate pipelines for a fraction of the cost and time associated with pipeline replacement, and the bridging and hole-spanning properties of HDPE have enabled previous customers to return their aged pipelines to full operating pressure.
