Like refineries, petrochemical production facilities offer many opportunities for the economical solution to galvanic corrosion provided by composite materials. The ProTek Wear Pad will eliminate the problem of corrosion under insulation that plagues many chemical processing plants. VibraTek Hold Down Clamps provide control of pipe movement around dynamic processing equipment while permitting pipe expansion due to thermal effects. A selection of lined pipe straps and coated U-Bolts can offer economic alternatives.
