Sherwin-Williams Launches High Temperature, High Pressure-Resistant Tank Lining
Single-coat Nova-Plate 325 can be applied up to 60 mils DFT, withstand immersion at 300°F
CLEVELAND (April 16, 2013) – Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings announces the launch of Nova-Plate 325, an extended lifecycle, 100 percent solids tank lining for high temperature crude oil, produced water and frac tank applications. Additionally, Nova-Plate 325 is appropriate for universal "swing service" applications in refined fuel and ethanol service.
Nova-Plate 325 was designed for use both onshore and offshore where conventional systems cannot withstand contents that have been extracted under pressure, and at temperatures as high as 300° F (150° C) for crude oil and 210o F (99° C) for produced water.
"Our labs are working directly with the oil and gas industry to meet their ever increasing needs," said Ron Knecht, market director for Oil & Gas – North America, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. "A lining specification for heavy crude oil must take today’s high temperatures and pressures into account. Nova-Plate 325 is formulated with advanced novolac technology, incorporating components of glass and ceramic, that promotes a tank's long life under the most demanding of immersion conditions."
With Nova-Plate 325, asset owners can expect a fast return to service, with the drying schedule allowing for foot traffic in six hours and cure to service in 48 hours, for a typical 20 mil DFT application at 77° F (25° C). In rehabilitation applications, Nova-Plate 325 can be applied in a single coat up to 60 mils DFT.
