Power stations, refinery and station construction
Powerful in every detail
The world's highest safety standards are applied in the construction and operation of power plants and refineries because of their enormous impact on people,the environment and their considerable technical complexity. These requirements apply to all plants, pipelines and tank farms. Their durable corrosion protection, reliable insulation and permanent sealing ensure occupational and operational safety to prevent accidents and incidents.
For decades, our BUTYLEN-PE/butyl tapes have been successfully applied in the construction of power stations at temperatures of -50°C to +100°C or -58°F to +212°F. Individual product systems can be combined to offer resistance to UV rays, bacteria or electrolytes.
The PLASTELEN®-TB System is a highly effective corrosion protection and at the same time a permanent seal for the transition area between steel and concrete in above-ground tank bottoms. With storage tanks, there is a risk of water and air penetrating into the gaps between the lower steel plate and the concrete base. You simply apply the solvent-free product without drying or preheating, as it is even suitable for damp surfaces. Even with tank movements and temperature changes, the system remains flexible and adaptable.
Station construction: Two challenges – one solutionThere are two key challenges affecting soil to air interface areas: Firstly, atmospheric corrosion is different to corrosion that takes place under the ground. Secondly, the interface areas are subject to high mechanical loads and various movements during construction.
For decades, our BUTYLEN-PE/butyl tapes have been successfully used to create seals, provide electrical insulation and prevent corrosion in station construction applications, at temperatures of -50°C to +100°C, or -58°F to +212°F.
