Like any assets, your fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) pipes, tanks, scrubbers and ducts should be inspected regularly for structural integrity — and the more accurate a picture that inspection gives you, the better. Miss a defect, and you risk a leak or blow-out. Replace a vessel before you need … [Read more...] about The better way to manage your FRP assets
Two recent case studies involving pulp and paper mills in Ontario and British Columbia, Canada demonstrate the benefit of UltraAnalytix™ inspection. Chlorine dioxide, used to bleach pulp, is particularly corrosive and often results in loss of FRP thickness. The pulp and paper mill in Ontario had … [Read more...] about Case studies: UltraAnalytix™ inspection shows FRP asset relining can be postponed
ABSTRACT: Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) is used in wastewater processing for tanks, scrubbers, piping, ducting and other equipment. FRP often provides better corrosion resistance at lower cost than stainless steel. For some applications, regulators require structural evaluation of containers … [Read more...] about Non-Destructive Condition Assessment of Fiberglass Reinforced Structures
UltraAnalytix™ inspection results showed that the thickness and condition of the FRP in a pulp bleaching vessel were adequate to postpone scheduled relining. Background: The Owner Company operated a pulp and paper mill in British Columbia, Canada. Five seal tanks are used in the bleach plant, … [Read more...] about Case Study: Seal Tank (Pulp & Paper)
UltraAnalytix™ inspection results showed that the thickness and condition of the FRP in a pulp bleaching vessel were adequate to postpone scheduled relining. Background: The Owner Company operated a moderately sized pulp and paper mill located in Ontario, Canada. Chlorine dioxide is used to … [Read more...] about Case study: Relined Upflow Tubes (Pulp & Paper)
