Cooling Tower Framework and Piping Protection with Denso Tapes
Exposed Surface Coating
|Project Type||Cooling Tower Protection|
|Products Used||Densyl Tape / Denso Hi-Tack Tape / Denso Paste|
|Contractor or Applied By||Maintenance Personnel|
In 1977 American General applied the Denso Petrolatum System to protect their cooling tower framework and piping. After years of service the cooling towers had to be replaced. This provided the perfect opportunity to inspect Denso’s Petrolatum Tape System. The petrolatum tape coating had been in service for over 37 years in a wet/humid corrosive environment. It was found after removing the Denso Petrolatum Tape, the steel was in perfect condition with no corrosion. Since the coating system exceeded the life of the cooling tower the engineers speciﬁed that all pipes, valves, ﬁttings and structural steel be protected with the Denso Petrolatum Tape System. Denso has a long list of successful case histories as we have been manufacturing petrolatum products for over 85 years.
