Thermal Spray in Petroleum and Chemical Industries

The main problem in the petroleum and chemical industry is to prevent corrosion and wear, all forms of wear, especially those linked to corrosion arising at low, intermediate, and high temperatures.

Thus HVOF spraying, that can be used on-site, is extensively used against corrosion and abrasive and erosive wear mainly with carbide-based cermets.

Of course for the protection of external steel structures, pipes, tanks etc. Al, Zn, or Zn–Al wire arc or flame sprayed are used, as well as polymers sprayed by flame, HVOF, plasma according to the polymer melting temperature.
For the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, the following components are coated using thermal spray technologies:
