Elastomeric pipe coating application

We were asked to provide a solution for gasoline and diesel fuel Train unloading ramps collectors, that were taking a beating from hoses and spilled fuel during the unloading process.

The chosen solution was degreasing, the removal of the old coating by dry abrasive blasting, application of an epoxy primer, an elastomeric 2mm thick intermediate coating and a Polyurethane topcoat for UV protection.

During the blasting and cleaning process we discovered a 5mm large hole in one of the pipes. The hole was generated by corrosion and was causing unknown product losses. Due to the explosive atmosphere welding repairs were impossible, so unconventional repair products and techniques were used.
