Internal Weld Coating in Northern Chile

When a large copper mine several hundred kilometers from Antofagasta, Chile installed a pipeline to supply processing water to the mine, expected internal corrosion problems led the engineering company to specify a high-quality internal lining that included the welded field joints. Our Company supplied technicians and CRTS specialized internal robots to the main contractor on the project. 

Over 5,000 pipeline field joints were robotically coated, both internally and externally, with fusion bonded epoxy. Pipe sizes ranged from 8-inches to 30-inches in diameter.
