Oxifree Global showcased its revolutionary new Polymelt Service Gun (SG1) at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC), 2016.
The new SG1 is a handheld, portable applicator designed forfilling in sections of Oxifree TM198 coating that have been removed for inspection. It has been developed to further ease maintenance costs for asset owners within the oil and gas industry.
Thermoplastic coatings are in high demand, particularly in the Middle East, where environmental factors like abrasion and corrosion mean that metal components need replacing quickly. OxifreeGlobal’s thermoplastic coating,Oxifree TM198, is an organic, patent protected formula which helps tocombat corrosion and has been proven to increase the lifetime of metal components and reduce maintenance costs by at least 40%.
Oxitape further aids asset owners by allowing them to bring the benefits of Oxifree TM198 to an even wider range of applications and environments. Applied over Oxifree TM198, it creates a defensive shell that offers complete protection from contact, corrosion and contamination.
Now, with the new SG1, asset owners are able to easily reapply the coating themselves in small areas in situ, without the need for specialist technicians.
Ed Hall, managing director of Oxifree Global, comments: “Our dedication to finding innovative ways to reduce maintenance costs within the oil and gas industry has proved successful with the new SG1. Asset owners are now able to equip themselves with yet another cost saving tool to help tackle the growing issue of corrosion.”
