Rubber linings and Products
Rubber lining offers effective protection against
corrosion, erosion and chemical attack. Our department has vast experience of
rubber lining with both cured and uncured compounds.
Rubber has been used in industrial applications for over a
hundred years and has a proven track record. The application of rubber
sheeting to pipes and vessels is as relevant to today's industrial processes as
it has ever been.
We have experience of lining vessels, pipes, agitators and
pumps. In fact, we can rubber line items of just about any shape and size.
Example of an un-rubbered eroded pipe stub
Our in-house rubber lining department specialises in using
various types of uncured natural and synthetic rubbers. This type of lining
needs to be vulcanised in order to become cured and therefore more durable. We
use our large autoclave to vulcanise pipes up to 6 meters long. It has a
diameter of 2 metres, so we can cure some large objects in here. We also
specialise in free steaming larger objects. This involves constructing a
temporary custom built housing before we vulcanise the object. Using this
method, we can cure objects that are just about any shape or size.
We also have the capability to do onsite lining and repairs
using both precured rubber sheeting and site curing sheeting. This enables us to
make speedy repairs to onsite vessels where the existing lining may have become
damaged. Depending on the extent of damage, we can often hand back your vessel
to return to into service within 24 hours of the initial phone call to us. This
can save an exponential amount of money for our clients due to process down time.
