On-Site Metalspray Protects Critical Process Vessels

IGS was selected by an international affiliate of a major U.S. oil company to pioneer an on-site corrosion abatement solution for 4 critical process vessels associated with one of the largest oil fields in the world. The project prevented the short term replacement of all of the vessels and provided extremely valuable run time. IGS’s proprietary Hastelloy-based coating system worked so well in those initial vessels that the scope has been expanded by a significant factor to include many other types of equipment experiencing similar corrosion. Two years ago, we improved this proprietary coating system even further, receiving the parent company’s metallurgical test results confirming the superiority of this material over any material the laboratory had ever witnessed.

This on-site application presents significant unique logistical challenges that demonstrate IGS’s operational capabilities.
