National Grid Condensation and Safe touch
National Grid had some safety and corrosion concerns with their LNG boil off system. The system is designed to convert LNG (Liquefied natural Gas) back into a gases state for use. The extremes in temperature (- 260F to 300F) cause some unique issues. Areas of equipment that were exposed to the cold developed frost, condensation resulting in corrosion and a slip hazard from the wet floor beneath. Areas of heat from the boilers used to warm the cold liquid were a hazard for burn injury.
The John W. Egan Company was hire to apply an Aerolon coating by Tnemec. The Aerolon coating is Thermal insulative coating.
The results were amazing, areas where condensation once formed were dry and the hot pipes that run at 200-300 degrees could now be touched with bare hands.
