Gas Cylinders

Date: May 2008

Customer: Oil & Gas Systems Ltd

Location: Swansea


Oil & Gas Systems Ltd (O&GSL) put together large gas systems known as skids.  Included in each skid is an enclosed large gas cylinder (approx size 3m tall and 1m diameter).  Four of these cylinders had rusted inside and were deemed unacceptable by O&GSL customer.  Therefore the skid could not be used until the cylinders had been de-rusted.  Due to size and drainage issues large amounts of liquid could not be used or disposed of on site.

1) The Task

HITEK-nology Solutions Ltd was approached by the customer to provide a solution to de-rust the skids.

2) Product Used

  • VpCI 416
  • VpCI 423 Gel

3) The Solution

VpCI internal surface of the cylinders were treated with VpCI 423 Gel, this was then cleaned of with a 10% mix of VpCI 416, resulting in a low cost solution that fulfilled local requirements and also gave a finish acceptable to Oil & Gas Systems Ltd and their customer.
