PRLog - Sep. 20, 2012 - CARROLLTON, Texas -- Weather is a natural enemy of many products. The combination of water, humidity and exposure to oxygen can rapidly cause the development of corrosion of oil and gas pipelines.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Pipeline Safety, internal corrosion caused approximately 15% of all reportable incidents affecting gas transmission pipelines over the past several years, leading to an average cost of $3 million annually in property damage. At Protective Packaging Corporation, we offer a number of effective outdoor storage covering solutions as well as a wide variety of products for use as corrosion protection on oil and gas pipelines.
A methane and natural gas company in Victoria, TX needed a solution to protect gas pipelines while being stored outdoors for up to 2 years. The solution had to protect equipment from moisture, debris and the elements in the humid climate of southern Texas.
For this particular project, Protective Packaging used scrim and VCI emitters, along with Protect 100 HD (HD 100), desiccant and VCI emitters. Protective Packaging dispatched on site packaging experts to implement the solution and successfully enclosed the gas pipeline equipment, preserving it during storage.
Ultimately, this corrosion prevention solution kept the equipment in reasonable working order so that little prep work would be needed in the future before using it in production.
At Protective Packaging, we offer a range of VCI emitters that can be included with barrier packaging for added rust protection. We also carry a variety of VCI papers, films, and wraps supersaturated with corrosion preventive chemicals. These materials can be converted into VCI tubes and VCI bags of all sizes to meet your corrosion protection needs. Just give us the dimensions, and we'll make the bag!
