How are weld seams on the EUGAL pipeline efficiently protected from corrosion?

Constructing natural gas pipelines is challenging: approx. 48 weld seams need permanent protection. DEKOMAT®-11 quickly and reliably wraps pipes of 1400 nominal width with BUTYLEN tapes. The wrapping machine, with an in-built petrol engine, applies the tapes almost automatically and works with the dual tape system in a single step

See for yourself! Take a look at how simple the tapes are to work with on this video!    

Pipe rehabillitation - new installation method in water 

The weld seams of a DN 1200 drinking water pipeline are encased in a diffusion-resistant protective hose as part of a new installation method that floats in water. Just ten minutes after the application of the BUTYLEN-AS50 tape, the pipe is pushed into a tunnel flooded with water.
