Corrosion protective coatings: rehabilitation of buried steel pipelines

In 1595, the oldest known industrial pipeline in the world was constructed in Austria. It transported saline solution for 40 km from Hallstadt to Ebensee. At that time, rehabilitation was a relatively simple affair – as the pipeline was made of 13,000 tree trunks, one only had to cut down a tree, hollow it out, and replace the defect section.

Going with the flow: internal coatings (expanded version)

Thin film epoxy coatings have long been known to reduce the internal roughness, and hence the friction factor, of natural gas flow lines. A new generation of high solids materials provide environmentally sustainable solutions without increased coating thickness or loss of performance.
