Case Study

CompoSol® X-Protect is a low cost Non-Engineered temporary Composite Repair System used to reinforce defected lines and prevent the spread of external corrosion. The system has been pressure tested and performs well so repairs can be practically effective without having to conform to the ISO standard.

CompoSol® X-Protect is used as a wet layup around all types of ferrous and non-ferrous pipes and piping systems. The system is ideal to prevent the spread and worst effects of external corrosion and to reinforce defects, including through-wall defects.

IMG Composites Onshore CompoSol® Encap

Middle East Oil Terminal Stubs

Onshore_Encap

IMG Composites technologies allow repairs to be undertaken using surface preparation standards St 2 to SA 2.5. This technology means that the repairs can be carried out without causing further damage to already weakened systems.

A major Middle East oil terminal had problems with corrosion around stubs and off take valves. Severe corrosion had taken place and the operator was concerned with the integrity of the stubs. IMG Composites were approached and tasked with providing a composite solution that would enable the operation of the plant to continue. The answer was provided in the form of CompoSol® Encap.

Onshore_Encap_2As the stubs had already suffered significant wall loss due to severe corrosion it was vital that the surface preparation method employed would not be overly damaging to the substrate. IMG Composites technologies allow repairs to be undertaken using surface preparation standards St 2 to SA 2.5. This technology means that the repairs can be carried out without causing further damage to already weakened systems.

Onshore_Encap_3Onshore_Encap_4Utilising CompoSol®’s unique high-strength pour and wrap composite surrounded by steel outer casings, integrity was restored to the stubs. Crucially for the client the repairs required no hot work and thus, the repairs were carried out while the line was still live.

Onshore CompoSol® Vessel

CompoSol® Vessel is an Engineered and Designed Composite Repair System for use on vessels and tanks suffering from both internal or external corrosion, including through wall defects.

Utilisation of CompoSol® Vessel eliminates the expensive and time consuming requirement of hydrotesting associated with hot work repair methods.

CompoSol® Vessel is used as a wet lay up on all types of ferrous and non-ferrous vessels to restore operational integrity in line with International Standard ISO 24817.

APPLICATION Surfaces should be clean and free from loose rust and contamination and preparation should be in line with the requirements of the latest International Standards.

CompoSol® Vessel should only be applied by applicators trained and certificated in line with ISO 24817, ASME PCC2 and ACORES Audit requirements.

IMG Composites Onshore CompoSol® Pipeline

Middle East Gas Pipeline

img_offshore_oman_may_2004_mark_2_028A major Middle Eastern Gas Operator had severe corrosion problems on its National Transmission Pipeline Grid. As most of the pipeline was over 20 years old, the Operator decided on a preventative maintenance and rehabilitation programme. An Intelligent Pigging programme was launched to identify all wall defects and a rehabilitation schedule was initiated to repair and reinforce the worst of the anomalies.

img_offshore_oman_may_2004_mark_2_130Traditional techniques such as welded sleeves were costly and difficult to install and involved hot work. IMG Composites was awarded the contract to provide both a technically sound and cost effective solution with its CompoSol® PIPELINE system. All CompoSol® Composite repairs are designed and engineered in line with ISO 24817 and ASME PCC-2 and are carried out under Cold Work Permits.

img_offshore_oman_may_2004_mark_2_142Application is manual with light hand tools, which is important in remote areas as no heavy equipment or cranes are required. IMG Composites' CompoSol® cold work repairs are carried out online with no disruption to production by locally available, qualified applicators. The CompoSol® PIPELINE system can be applied seamlessly for any length required at the work site.

img_offshore_oman_may_2004_mark_2_147For example, this 20inch diameter pipeline required reinforcement over a range of lengths, including 1metre, 3metre, 7metre and over 10metre sections. The concept is simple, just wrap the CompoSol® PIPELINE system components around the pipe and allow to cure. When designed, and applied by trained applicators, in line with internationally recognised standards, it is possible to replace the strength and integrity of any pipe wall material lost due to corrosion or erosion. Repairs can be designed to have a life expectancy between 1 year and 20 years.

OGC_Km78_8IMG Composites supplies an Engineered and Designed Composite Repair System for use on pipelines suffering from either internal or external corrosion, including through wall defects or mechanical damage.
