Automatic PPFS / PEFS

Serimax FJC, in conjunction with an industry leader in flame spray technology has developed an Automated Polypropylene / Polyethylene (PP / PE) system that offers a 3-layer solution.

Application uses flame spray guns controlled by a PLC to dispense powder at the required rate as the guns are indexed around the pipe to build up the required thickness of PP or PE, a typical thickness for 3-layer PP / PE would range from 2.5mm to 10mm DFT. This process is completed following the application of an anti-corrosive layer of FBE on to a prepared abrasive blasted surface which provides the 3-layer solution.

Automatic PPFS / PEFS

Field-applied PPFS / PEFS coatings using industry approved PP or PE powders provide an equivalent finish to that afforded by the factory line pipe coating. This is ensured at the time of application as the powders melt fully and fuse with the existing polyolefin factory coating forming a perfect homogeneous bond i.e. the factory-applied PP or PE layers.

Automated PP / PE Flame Spray Technology for 3-layer coating systems provide:

  • Consistency
  • Controllability
  • Repeatability
  • Reliability
  • Faster cycle times
  • Elimination of the Human Factor
  • Improvements in Health and Safety

Serimax FJC’s Automated PP / PE Flame Spray Technology provides a viable alternative to all conventional 3LPP & 3LPE coating systems in use today.
