What is corrosion protection?Protecting against corrosion is a durable option to protect your pipe technology and materials from corrosion damage and air pollution. Corrosion can lead to bulk metal breaking up into a powder—and the deposit of graphite that you’ll notice might appear to be dust. Surface protection is necessary to ensure the lasting defence against oxidation and rust for your piping materials or pipe supports, and are just some of the 6 advantages of corrosion protection for your piping technology.
Which pipe technologies and components does protecting corrosion help?There are a broad range of piping technologies and components that corrosion protection can support. In addition to pipe clamps, corrosion protection is ideal for rail systems with stainless steel metal surfaces and pipe systems. The exceptional adhesion to the stainless steel surface of pipe clamps, thread connections and rail systems means that the surface protection offers a strong, robustness and extends the life of the materials of your components.
What should plant engineers consider when selecting a corrosion protection?In addition to the service life, two crucial factors that plant engineers should consider when selecting a corrosion protection are the environmental conditions that can affect corrosion of piping systems, such as the air pollution, and the categories available for surface protection.
What are the environmental conditions that plant engineers should be aware of?The environmental conditions and factors that can affect materials and that plant engineers should be aware of are:
- Humid environments
- Environmental conditions that have extreme temperatures
- Air pollution—including chlorides and sulphur
- Salt loading
