In this case study we are looking at flange protection on a phenol pipeline, a highly corrosive environment. Following the failure of a paint solution, TM198 was applied to provide a total anti corrosion solution which will withstand the harsh environment for many years to come.

#tuesdaythoughts and a #throwbacktuesday to this case study where multiple flange connections were protected at a major Brazilian refinery experiencing significant corrosion due to its coastal location.
Take a look at the before and after photos and see how Oxifree TM198 was the perfect solution.

This fantastic case study details the protection of wellheads for Chevron Thailand on an offshore platform in the Gulf of Thailand. Our representative APDE carried out the work early in 2017 and then revisited the site 15months later to see the success Oxifree TM198 was having in halting corrosion in a very hostile environment.

Oxifree were proud to be sponsors at this years SPE Netherlands Gala event at the end of January.  The Gala is the industry’s leading social and networking event of the year drawing executive management, senior leaders and engineers from the Dutch offshore oil and gas industry including oil companies, operators, offshore services suppliers and solutions providers.

This year was no different with the event completely sold out in advance. Guests were treated to excellent food and entertainment as they networked with key industry personnel.

Ed Hall, Managing Director says: “Oxifree have enjoyed being event sponsors for the past two years and were delighted to do so again this year. The Netherlands is an important market for us as we will shortly be opening a second Global Services office there following the launch of our new services division in Angus, NE Scotland. We will be able to offer training and application services to local partners and businesses.”

New Years typically bring about changes; a reignited love of the gym, commitments to eat healthier, take up a new hobby, slim down!

So to mark the start of 2018 Oxifree are proud to unveil the ‘new and improved’ Polymelt 50.

As part of our commitment to continuous product development, the PM50 has undergone quite the transformation to bring new benefits to our customers.

New PM50 highlights:

  • 5kgs lighter and 45% reduction in overall size – easier to transport and manoeuvre on work site
  • Integrated design – all equipment stored in one enclosure
  • New contemporary design
  • New soft wheels – improved impact/shock resistance
  • New machine usage and pump usage hour meters – more transparency to usage hours for maintenance planning.

The Polymelt 50 is our larger machine for the application of Oxifree TM198.  It has a tank capacity of 22kg/50lbs and comes with a 15m/50ft hose.

To create the new machine we took feedback from our own projects, feedback from customers, reviewed the environments our machines operate in and looked at the demands in the market.

Reducing the weight and size improves manoeuvrability, the new soft wheels make for smoother ride across often bumpy terrain. The machine heating and pump usage hour meters were incorporated to provide operators and owners more transparency in the actual time the equipment has run for, this allows for scheduled maintenance programs inclusive of preventative maintenance, all providing greater reliability and longevity for the equipment.

Our new machines started shipping at the beginning of the year and we are pleased with the feedback so far.
