DOT 2015: Shawcor highlights XTremeTemp HP/HT pipeline coating

Offshore staff

THE WOODLANDS, Texas – At the recent Deep Offshore Technology International conference and exhibition, which concluded yesterday at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott, exhibitor and event sponsor Shawcor discussed with Offshore a new high-pressure/high-temperature product, XTreme Temp.

Shawcor says that the pipeline coating will have a continuous operating temperature of up to 400°F (205°C) and has no glass microspheres, so that it can operate in any water depth. It has three insulation layers, two of which are rubber insulation layers. The outermost layer is Shawcor’s network epoxy modified olefin (NEMO) coating, an epoxy-modified polyurethane. 

 Accelerated aging tests have been conducted, with no visual change observed when compared to the control. Mechanical properties displayed change within ±6% of control sample for heat barrier after three months’ exposure. Thermal properties showed to be within ±5% of the control sample for heat barrier after three months of exposure.

The product has achieved component qualification with an operator, and Shawcor plans to complete the work necessary for system qualification.
