Case Study: hand-held device coats pipeline field joints to OEM-quality

Tape wrap contends with higher technology pipeline joint coating solutions, in many contexts with a degree of success. Wrapped with skill, tape can offer the requisite protection a pipeline joint needs. However, that success depends to a great extent on the ability of the labor installing the low adhesion, low mechanical strength material. Tape represents an archaic approach to pipeline joint protection; while standard, it is hand applied, making it both labor intensive and subject to variable quality. Air entrapment introduces unevenness and weakness to the covering, and unskilled personnel often find extreme difficulty keeping a constant tension around the pipe. Historically, failures on pipelines in South Africa occur at the field applied joints which are done on site by the pipe laying contractor. One pipeline company opted to replace the old tape wrapping technique with a modern low-cost coating solution. The result, achieved by using Sulzer Mixpac MixCoat applicators, protects weld joints with the same quality repeatability as the pipeline's OEM coating.
