Results Based on the success of previous applications with a combination of Abrasion Resistant composite systems using BasfiberWrap® in abrasive environments a solution was sought after using the Chemco range of products and expertise.
After regularly replacing these sections of pipe on a monthly basis the plant maintenance team are very happy with 9 months of service and still going.
