Composite Pipe Repair

Industry: Power Generation - Fossil Fuel

Solution: Coal Pipe Elbows

ID: CPR-1-00143

Project summary:

A coal-fired power plant was experiencing significant wear in their solid fuel handling systems. Especially problematic were the areas where the piping led into the pulverizer and elbows located between the burner and the pulverizer. Advanced FRP trained the plant’s internal team and maintenance contractor on the application of a ceramic-lined, carbon fiber wrap on the troublesome areas. After proper surface preparation, our abrasion resistant Ceramic Repair Putty HT was applied at 125 mils to the pipe surface followed by 4-layers of a high-strength, high temperature carbon fiber composite.
