Long Term Preservation Mothballing - SKPS

MOTHBALLING & PRESERVATION

Problem

The practice of closing facilities over a long time or storing equipment and tools that are still in working order is called mothballing. Equipment and facilities that are not used often may be subject to mothballing. During mothballing, systems are put in hibernation and momentarily shut down.

Solution

Various Products are used in combination for Mothballing and Long Term Protection and Maintenance of spares and redundant machinery to ensure they are in a prime state and ready for operation whenever they are needed.

Outdoor Equipment Preservation using Shrink Film

Zerust/Excor Outdoor Preservation VCI Shrink Film provides advanced protection to metals with Zerust Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) technology. It is a premium 8-mil, high-strength shrink Film with UV stabilizers for 3-year outdoor protection. The Film shrinks and conforms to objects when heated to repel moisture and contaminants. Zerust VCI saturates the interior of the packaging to protect hard-to-reach spaces and voids from corrosion.

Indoor Equipment Preservation using Shrink Film

Zerust/Excor ICT 510-SRK Shrink is a polyethylene shrink Film provides advanced protection to metals with Zerust Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI)
technology. It is a premium 4-mil, high-strength shrink Film that shrinks and conforms tightly around objects when heated to repel moisture and contaminants.
Zerust VCI saturates the interior of the packaging to protect hard-to-reach spaces and voids from corrosion.

Pipeline Preservation Solution

If you are building a new pipeline, as a section is completed, it is typically hydrotested. After hydrotest, many owners will dry the section and purge the atmosphere with Nitrogen. Often, these lines are not completely dry and the combination of water, oxygen and bacteria, can have a negative corrosion effect on this new steel, even if the line has a Nitrogen blanket. Maintaining the Nitrogen can take time and be expensive, especially if the line will not be commissioned for a period of time.

VCI can be introduced to the non-piggable segments as well as the piggable lines very cost effectively in most cases. The VCI can then preserve the line from corrosion for many years. When it is time to put the line into service, there are options for removing the small amounts of VCI slurry, or in some cases, simply start pumping the product.

Versatile Corrosion Inhibitor

Zerust/Excor ICT 510-SRK Shrink is a polyethylene shrink Film provides advanced protection to metals with Zerust Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI)
technology. It is a premium 4-mil, high-strength shrink Film that shrinks and conforms tightly around objects when heated to repel moisture and contaminants.
Zerust VCI saturates the interior of the packaging to protect hard-to-reach spaces and voids from corrosion.

Flash Corrosion Inhibitor

Zerust’s AutoFog A is a revolutionary Flash Corrosion Inhibitor (FCI™) that diffuses rapidly to provide corrosion protection for bare metal surfaces. The unique rapid diffusing action allows corrosion inhibition of pipelines, voids and other enclosed spaces without the need for power sprays or mechanical fogging of powders.
