Belzona In The Petrochemical Industry Back to PRODUCTS page
For nearly 50 years, Belzona has helped petrochemical companies keep plants running effectively and efficiently. With the industry shutdown period being extended, reliability is now the key to profitable production levels – and in some cases to the survival of the plant in today’s competitive international marketplace.
The development by Belzona of high temperature specialized coatings, has given engineers in the petrochemical industry viable alternatives to traditional repair methods or specialized materials of construction, which can be expensive, time consuming and can still be subject to stress, crevice, galvanic and bacterial corrosion effects.
Desalter vessels internally heated with steam coils are constantly under attack from a mixture of crude oil and residual salt water. The epoxy coating in this unit failed due to the elevated temperatures. Belzona® 1391 was applied during a five-day shutdown period to provide a long term solution to problems of severe corrosion.

Evaporators suffer corrosion and attack from chlorides at elevated temperatures. Evaporators suffer corrosion and attack from chlorides at elevated temperatures. The base of these units, internally clad with 317L Stainless Steel and operating at temperatures in excess of 105°C, suffered pitting and stress corrosion cracking. Belzona® 1391 was used to protect six of these units during 1996 with excellent on going performance.
