Corrosion Mitigation And Management
1. Coatings And Linings Technology Range
Solvent Free Epoxy And Polyurea, Polyurethane Systems
Plural component hot applied coating is the modern, fast, efficient and reliable method for the factory application of high performance materials to critical pipelines and equipment. Also favored as a field rehabilitation and field joint coating system because of its tough, abrasion resistance capability, pipe can be bedded and backfilled almost immediately after completing which is of vital importance to the timely completion of fabrication and rehabilitation projects. IMCO offers a complete factory and field service for both new and existing equipment and pipelines.

2. Glassflake Reinforced Polyester / Pure Epoxy System / Vinyl Ester
Glass flake coatings and linings are widely used in situations of extreme chemical and abrasion environments. Based on polyester, vinyl ester or bisphenol or epoxy resins, heavily loaded with mica chip, they provide a tough and extremely durable to even the most arduous of service conditions. These linings can be both factory and field applied by IMCO qualified installers.
The electric arc and flame spray application of exotic metal coatings is rapidly becoming more and more popular world-wide for the long term protection of steel surfaces against extreme marine, high temperature and corrosive chemical environments, especially for areas where extended life to first maintenance is essential IMCO offers a complete factory and field installation service employing the most modern of techniques and equipment enabling rapid and economical production. Flame sprayed deposition represents one of the highest integrity coating systems available on the market today.

4. Ceramic Linings And Coatings
With the near diamond hardness of alumina oxide and ceramic composites, we are now able to extend the life of processing equipment 10-15 times over the past standard technology. Ceramic lining had become the standard best practice of coal processing and related operations to maximize return on investments. Coal processing operations realize huge returns with use of our Ceramic Lining Technology.

5. Abrasive blasting
The team at IMCO has the ability, expertise and equipment to produce abrasive blast surface in severely corroded and pitted confined spaces and of new steel surfaces in a time bound manner. This includes but is not limited to preload tanks, mud pit tanks, void tanks and spaces, potable water tanks, diesel oil tanks and many more.
Your production or processing facility may be relatively new, or it may have been operating for a number of years. It will have been well engineered and constructed and is doubtless generally well maintained. There will be parts of your facility however, that might be considered the “heart” of the manufacturing or processing that by the very nature of their function endure some of the most severely corrosive environments imaginable.
These are the “wear parts” of your Industry. IMCO offers services ranging from Inspection Condition Assessment and Evaluation Specification Preparation Project Management
Project Implementation including specialist coating lining services
7. Flaker Drum Restoration
Flaker Drums are used to convert molten chemicals into solid flakes. This is achieved by forming a thin layer of molten product on the outside surface of a rotating drum and causing this to be solidified by spraying cooling water from the inside surface of the drum. An adjustable scrapper continuously removes the solidified material from the drum surface in flake forms. To keep up the quality of the flakes produced, the condition of the drum plays an important role. IMCO carries out thermal spraying on worn out Flaker Drums to give the component an enhanced service life.

Advantages of Thermal Spray :
Cost Effective Large Build ups Low heat application
Screw conveyors are used for bulk movement of materials. They can be applied to numerous industrial or commercial applications including Paper mills, Pharmaceutical, food production, refineries, etc, for either recovery or removal purposes, or to waste flows to convey separated screened solids. These conveyors come in contact with materials that are toxic, abrasive and sticky. To keep up the quality of the material conveyed, screws in the conveyer play an important role. IMCO carries out thermal spraying on worn out screws to give the component an enhanced service life.
IMCO provides the following services on the above:
Screw Rebuilding Thermal Coating Rebuilding of profiles for variety of screw shapes Onsite grinding Dynamic Balancing
