FLANGE JOINT REPAIR SERVICE

Within the petrochemical industry, there is increasing pressure on refineries to minimise unscheduled shutdowns. Perhaps the leading source of hydrocarbon releases and therefore a regular cause of shutdowns is pipeline leakages which often occur in bolted flange joints. Leakages from flange joints not only cost time and money to repair, but because of the hazardous nature of the materials being transported, are also a Health & Safety hazard.  

Within the petrochemical industry, there is increasing pressure on refineries to minimise unscheduled shutdowns. Perhaps the leading source of hydrocarbon releases and therefore a regular cause of shutdowns is pipeline leakages which often occur in bolted flange joints. Leakages from flange joints not only cost time and money to repair, but because of the hazardous nature of the materials being transported, are also a Health & Safety hazard.  

Leakage at flange joints is generally the result of corrosion building up at the sealing surfaces to such an extent that the seal is compromised and leakage occurs.

It is therefore vital that oil and gas producers safeguard against leaks and product loss by implementing a corrosion prevention plan. Corroserve has for decades used the latest technology in surface preparation and coating making us a leading company in flange face repair and rebuilding. Using proven techniques and products Corroserve offer a comprehensive flange repair service.
