Case Studies (5)

Some samples and application from recent projects highlighting the use of UPS polymers in a variety of industrial situations.

From repairing a torn tyre on an earth mover that was in use 24hours a day with elastomer polymer to waterproofing a leaking tank UPS polymers have facilitated repairs with minimal down time and disruption to service.

Huge Saving Repairing a Water Leak

Written by

UNIQUE POLYMER SYSTEMS DISTRIBUTOR

 

We are glad to state that we have successfully controlled a leakage on the main cold water line at a Power Station in Pakistan with UPS Products.

This has saved the customer more than 200 Thousand US Dollars of production loss in 24-hours. The repair required the engineers to perform hot repair job.


Quantities of UPS Products used in this application.

 

1- UPS-200 EG: 18-Kg


2- UPS-19603 Pipe Repair Bandage: 04-Nos


3- UPS-19605 Pipe Repair Bandage: 04-Nos


4- UPS-19060 Simple Stick: 02-Nos


5- UPS-Glass Tape: One Roll


Application consists of following steps;


1- A CS Box with weep hole design was fabricated to cover the whole effected portion along with 1-ft extra area to all three available sides.

2- A pneumatic grinder used to prepare all the required surface in wet condition.

3- Box pasted with combination of UPS-19001 Bandages/UPS-200 EG and immediately pressed down with a huge clamp covering all the circumference of the pipe.

4- After getting UPS Products cured under the box, we then started sealing the box inch by inch from each side.

5- After sealing all sides of the box, a further reinforcement application was carried out on all border sides of the box.

6- Next day we plugged the weep hole and there is no more leakage.

Heat Exchangers

Written by

DSC09920

 

The most common model of heat exchanger  is probably the “shell and tube” model, a device which normally consists of a cast iron or steel shell containing a calculated number of tubes with certain diameters.

The tubes rest on a tube plate made out of brass, or copper/zinc alloy (muntz metal), or copper/zinc/tin alloy (admiralty metal).

Water flow is regulated by dividers and is extremely turbulent, this has the tendency to create rapid erosion.

What’s more, heat exchangers suffer from bimetallic corrosion due to the existence of various and differeing metals in close proximity. This is unfortunately almost always aggravated by the generally corrosive nature of cooling water used.

When you add on top of this some very commonly encountered factors like poor water treatment and lack of proper maintenance, you can see why heat exchangers require more systematic attention by 'Unique Polymers Systems' highly trained “polymer people”.

The most common problems are de-zincification of the tube plate and graphitisation of the division bars.

While such problems are easily solved by Unique Polymers Systems ceramic polymers, the heat limitations of Unique Polymers Systems advanced polymers (2030C-DRY/930C-WET) coupled with problems of difficult access can sometimes prevent “polymer repairs” from being carried out more extensively, i.e. inside the shell.

Polymer repairs on tube sheet plates are generally exposed to moderate temperatures like 480C.
