Polyurethane foam has been the insulation of choice to insulate valves and pipes in the resource industry. Tate’s Coating Services have developed techniques to install the foam through holes as small as 5mm and have been using these application methods for many years in the oil and gas industry.
Valves can be weak spots in pipe systems and Tate’s Coating Services ensures that they are not. Valves and flanges are parts of pipelines that are at an increased risk of heat loss which in turn requires more energy for a system to run. Thermally insulating valves and flanges with polyurethane foam is an ideal solution to reduce heat loss and maximise output from your system.
Projects Tate’s Coating Services have been involved with include Pluto and Karatha/Woodside, Alcoa and CSBP to name a few.
