Agricultural Seeder Tank Protection

Seeding is arguably the most important activity in grain production. In broadacre farming, the increase in productivity appreciated from an air delivery system to distribute seed and fertilizer from a central storage tank to the seed drill opener has revolutionized farming practices. The storage tanks are configured to deliver as per application use. However, due to the corrosive nature of liquid fertilizers like Urea in the holding tanks, a solution was required to protect the inner lining of the tanks further, extending the productive life and minimizing future maintenance issues. LINE-X XS-350 was selected due to its high chemical resistance. The agricultural equipment is manufactured in different locations around the world and assembled in the country of use. LINE-X XS-350 was sprayed on all the

Versatile Boat Build. Providing Fishing During Extreme Sea Conditions

Extreme fishing enthusiasts do not want to be stopped by harsh sea conditions. Large waves, with heights of 2 meters and up to 7 meters in length, would prevent most smaller vessels from staying out at sea. Designing and engineering a new boat is needed to operate safely within these severe sea conditions. When building a new boat, you want to ensure the substrate can hold up to saltwater and potential penetration from sharp objects at sea and whilst mooring the boat. A boat was designed for use in demanding conditions of the sea. With the primary purpose of fishing under all conditions, the boat measured 5.7 meters long, 1.2 meters wide internally and 1.8 meters wide externally. A Robust Coating Solution The finished boat

Anti-Spill Secondary Containment

Frac tanks can store liquids or solids like petroleum products, chemicals, manure, saline water, and proppants. An advantage of Frac tanks is that they are mobile and easily transported to their required location.  It is an environmental requirement that a Frac Tank has a suitable containment/dike area installed to contain any potential spillage. Installing an appropriate secondary containment area can prove difficult in remote areas to prevent any chemicals from leeching into the surrounding environment. The surface of the secondary containment area was prepared by compacting sand into a wall in the form of a dike in preparation for the placement of six Frac Tanks.  The installation of 8×8 mm reinforced mesh is applied on the surface of the dike to create a firm substrate

Gas Pipe Bellows: Increasing The Lifespan With LINE-X Polyurea

When it comes to the transfer of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gases to an acid plant, you need to ensure you have the best solution for protecting the pipeline. Industrial bellows are installed in pipes to prevent damage caused by thermal growth vibrations and pressure thrust. However, these bellows can be exposed to abrasives and liquids- risking corrosion that can lead to a burst pipeline and gas leak. Corrosion of the bellow can happen for numerous reasons: pitting corrosion, galvanic corrosion and crevice corrosion to just name a few. Whatever the cause of the corrosion, a solution is needed to prevent a burst pipeline and gas leakage. LINE-X XS-350 Pure Polyurea Increases The Lifespan of The Gas Pipe Bellows. XS-350, a pure polyurea by LINE-X, has

PROTECTING MINING EQUIPMENT FROM CORROSION AND ABRASION

How To Utilise Corrosion Control In The Mining Industry

When it comes to controlling corrosion and abrasion damage on mining equipment, exposure to extreme environments, weather and dangerous terrain are all challenges that heavy machinery must overcome whilst working in large scale mining and excavation sites. Earthmovers like bulldozers, dump trucks, motor graders, excavators, and others are the workhorses of the mining industry. They dig, push, transport, and clear waste material or the mineral of interest from the site. When these machines go down, work grinds to a halt. Due to the nature of mining itself, constant exposure to weather for long periods, heavy machines need regular ongoing maintenance. Fuel and hydraulic tanks are particularly vulnerable to deterioration. Because fuel tanks sit between the front and rear wheels, they catch rocks and impact damage

Corrosion Resistant Coatings For Smart Parking Meters

Corrosion resistant coatings, by LINE-X, are being utilised in Italy for smart parking meters. Smart parking machines are becoming the standard in large and medium-sized cities. It’s an economical choice as one meter can be used for multiple spaces and smart machines can accept payment by credit/debit card, cash, coins, app or tokens. In many cases, smart parking machines are positioned outside or under an awning for protection from weather elements. However, even protection under an awning is not enough to completely prevent corrosion. Parking machines, and the complex technology inside them, are exposed to extreme temperatures, rain, snow, dust, sea air, fine particulates, debris as well as human and animal interaction that can cause abrasion or deterioration. A city council in Italy sought a

Internal Tank Lining For The Mining and Processing Industry

Businesses within the mining and processing industry require huge tanks to store shredded iron ore, but the interior coating of the manufacturer-supplied tanks wasn’t able to withstand the abrasion. The tanks would quickly show signs of corrosion and degradation, greatly shortening their service life. The client needed a solution to prolong the life of the tanks that could endure the continual movement of the iron ore scrap. Durable Linings by LINE-X The LINE-X professionals selected LINE-X XS-350 as the right coating for the job; it’s a highly durable, chemical-resistant pure polyurea. To start, the tanks were sandblasted and cleaned to ensure any previous coatings or contaminants were fully removed. A primer was then applied, and once the primer dried, LINE-X XS-350 was sprayed on using
