Protecting Pipes Long Term
Situation back in 2013: this customer approached Dhatec to protect their emergency pipes for long term outdoor storage. These pipes are meant to replace damaged pipes, in case something occurs with the active pipeline.
Leaving pipes stored outdoors unprotected for a long period of time (years) could cause corrosion and deterioration of the factory-applied coating.
Each year, the status and performance of the long term storage products are physically checked by Dhatec. The findings are presented in a report to the client, including observations and recommendations.
3 years after installation, only 5 Pipe Bends required a replacement of Desiccant Bags. And after 9 years, a full replacement of Desiccant Bags was required (normally, Desiccant Bags are offered for a maximum storage duration of 2 years!)
