The Protection of Processing Equipment Against Chemical Attack is Imperative in Minimising downtime in Production

Pipeline, vessels, chemical bunds and storage tanks are all susceptible to chemical attack leading to potential failure

Chemical Protection

Working within the processing, petrochemical, waste to energy and utilities industries requires an in depth knowledge of the chemicals used and the effects these have on our clients infrastructure.  Pipeline, vessels, chemical bunds and storage tanks are all susceptible to chemical attack leading to potential failure.

The specification of the correct coating system is critical when protecting steel and concrete assets from aggressive chemical attack. Our technical department work closely with leading manufacturers in the specification of chemically protective coatings whilst our engineers are experts in the application of these protective coating systems.  

Many structures subject to constant chemical contact suffer deterioration over time. This can lead to localised failure requiring steel work repair. SPG have extensive experience in the application of two component composite materials designed for the repair of carbon steel prior to the application of a protective coating system. This turnkey service offers clients a cost effective solution to the failure of critical assets.
