Scrubber pipework: a new challenge
Scrubber pipework form a new challenge to the shipowners globally following the IMO 2020 emission requirements. The scrubber pipes are primarily constructed using GRP pipes which are resistant to the highly corrosive wash water from the scrubbing process. GRP/GRE pipes do not corrode like metal pipes, but leaks do occur. Most often leaks are seen in the joints, sleeves or flanges, caused not by weakness in the material, but because of tension and vibrations. Wencon UW coating has excellent adhesive qualities to both GRP and metal. The UW coating further excels by adhering and curing in wet and humid conditions. This means a repair on a leak can be initiated immediately after the pressure is removed, and the system can be put back into operation only 6-10 hrs after the repair is completed. The curing time can be significantly reduced if heat is applied during the curing process.
