oil and gas preservation

A shrink-wrap cover provides the most effective control for corrosion protection in offshore and onshore applications.

Storage of coated assets for an extended period can lead to deterioration of equipment and their coatings.

For subsea components that are to be used as part of projects where commissioning has been delayed, there is often a need for them to be stored for a significant period of time until they are required.

Tufcoat shrink wrap can be used to encapsulate subsea components in storage and provides the ideal solution to help protect against factors such as UV radiation and dust contamination which can cause damage to sensitive areas of components.

Shrink-wrap covers can also be modified to include windows for moisture indicators which can easily be observed whilst in storage. The addition of small zipped hatches makes the replacement of desiccant a simple task without the need to completely remove the cover.

How effective are shrink-wrap covers?

Shrink-wrap provides a durable, drum-tight cover, unique to the product it protects.

A study into the preservation of coated pipes for long term storage, found shrink-wrap  outperformed 20 other preservation methods, with significant cost savings.

Tufcoat shrink-wrap includes UVI to protect coatings and because the cover fits tightly it overcomes the problems of detachment and failure in high winds. 

Nine times of ten the units go straight out to the client from completion; it is only towards the end of production that they would ask for them to be stored.

Shrink-wrap is the best and most efficient method for protecting them. For jobs not so critical tarpaulins are an option but even then we advise clients this is not a long term solution, we would use shrink-wrap on every project.

Tufcoat provided a very good service. All the guys on site were good, they worked well and safely.
