Corrosion in pipelines
pipe corrosion is a widespread occurrence across industries. These often carry hazardous products at high pressure and velocity which are part of critical industrial processes.
Corrosion is of serious concern here.it has a potentially catastrophic consequences for the industry and more importantly for the safety of the people and the environment.
pipe corrosion is arguably a catastrophe waiting to unfold.
The Chevron Refinery Fire
On August 6, 2012 the Chevron refinery in Richmond, California went up in flames. The fire endangered 19 workers and sent more than 15,000 residents to the hospital for medical attention. It ultimately led Chevron to reach a $160 million settlement.
Investigations revealed the cause to be rupture of a corroded pipe in the refinery piping network.
The incident just goes on to show how apparently benign yet potentially catastrophic pipe corrosion can be.
Zsupport™ with Zsupport™ X
Specifically Designed with corrosion in mind, Zsupport™ with Zsupport™ X is designed to proactively avoid corrosion and its subsequent proliferation into a catastrophe.
The particular design along with the material composition results in a dynamic structure which significantly enhances corrosion mitigation and monitoring when compared to conventional alternatives in use.
