Polymelt 12 Application machine

 

The Polymelt 12 was designed to offer the following advantages:

  • Ease of transportion
  • Lightweight
  • Compact for use in very confined areas
  • No need for air compressor
  • Multi voltage options
  • Perfect for repairs and gun are all individually heated, therefore

        no need to flush machine after use

 

Oxifree Plymelt 50 Application Machine

    The Polymelt 50 was designed for the purpose of melting and

Pumping. Oxifree Metal Protection Polymers only. Polyment 50 machine

wich holds 50lbs/22kgs of Oxifree TM198. This unit is recommended

for use in non-hazardous areas and features a pre-melt system

so continuous application can be maintained. 

 

Oxifree Polymelt 50 ATEX 2-22 Application Machine

   Poly 50 ATEX

   Is classiffed within the following EU Directives

  • Machinery directive 2006/42/E

How Oxifree TM198 Works 


  

 

Offshore Petronas Vietna

 

Testing:

Oxifree meterial has been thoroughly tested to 11,688 hours of"industry standrad" Salt Spray test , which complies with ASTM B117 corrosion testing which is equivalent to in excess of 50 years 'in the field'. 

Oxifree has also been through ASTM G56 UV/Weathering test and again exceeded required longevity with ease:

  • ASTM B117-Salt spray test-successfully testd to 4x industry benchmark
  • ASTM G154 UV-Weathring test successfully exceeded standards
  • GOL492/09 Volatile Organic Compound Test (<0.05%)
  • Boeing BSS 7329-Successful smoke toxicity test
  • ASTM E662-Successful smoke generation test
  • ASTM G85-94-Annex A5 prohesion test-successfully approved with 1000hrs testing
  • BS EN 13823-Single burnung item test-Complate and passed within standrads
  • ASTM D790-Cryogenic bend flexibility
  • ASTM D149-Dielectric strength testing
  • BS2782 Pt.2-Volumetric resistivity testing(Electrical resistance)
  • ASTM D7359-13 Standard Test Method for Total Fluorine, Chlorine and Sulfur in Aromatic Hydrocarbons
  • ASTM E968-Sand abrasion resistance

COMPARISON

 

Paint Coatings

  • Paints have a low initial material cost per liter and are mostly 

applicable to convering large surface expanses. Paints are used as

a 'Cure-all' solution to corrosion .

  • Washage is often very high up to 60% (Statistic From

department of ecology) and cannot be recovered.

  • Paint generally requires re application every 2 yrs, although

corrosion can actually reappear within a few months.

 

Petrolatum Tapes

  • Petrolaumy/wax tapes act in a similar way to Oxifree.

However again due to the complex nature of these applications,

void spaces tend to create potential for ingress of air and moisture

and trigger a corrosion cell.

  • Tapes have to be used in conjunction with other putty/fillers

to try to alleviate the sharp angles inherent a bolted structure.

 

Low cost, can be applied without specialist equiment, however

application is highly time consuming and messy. contains high

levels of VOC, has high disposal costs, limited areas of application

due to the ecological impact and is not reusable

 
 

Sleeves and Bands

  • Sleeve and band products are produced by manufactures

such as Kleerband, FPG, Step Ko and many others.

  • Only protects the gap between two flange faces or value

pipe Connections and are either made of metal or plastic therefore

leaving the main asset unprotected.

  • Certain designs require annual re insertion of the medium

such as (VCI)Vapour Corrosion inhibitors or Grease.

 

Cualking

  • Caulking is used for filling annular space between flange

faces.

  • Caulking suffers from shrinkage and cracking and only

has a very limited usage.

 

 

 

 

 

Flange bags

Flange bags are a new innovation for protecting flanges and

valves, however they need to be reactivated with VCI (Volatile

Corrosion Inhitors) within 12 months

Bags are susceptible to damage and leakage through the

taped end sealing.

Birds have been know to peck hokes in the shiny surface

and render the bags useless.

 

 

Caps 

These are very cheap but often do not fit correctly and even when properly specified caps tend to shrink and create crevices for corrosion cells to form.

As the photo displays some caps are missing and some cannot even be installed creating only a partial protection on the bolt and nut heads and completely leaves the valuable flange asset unprotected.

Clearly this image show that caps provide a very marginal protection.
