Trelleborg Set to Showcase Range of Topside and Fire Protection Solutions at Offshore Korea 2016
Trelleborg’s offshore operation is set to showcase its comprehensive suite of topside and fire protection solutions at Offshore Korea 2016.
Located in hall 3 on stand T201, the operation will present a number of topside innovations including its deluge and sprinkler system, Elastopipe™ as well as advancements in its fire protection solutions.
Hans Leo Hals, Managing Director for Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Norway, says: “The offshore oil and gas industry continues to demand the latest technologies and innovative solutions for one of the most challenging environments in the world. Improved safety and performance for every aspect of the market is our number one goal. The Offshore Korea exhibition is an excellent forum for Trelleborg to share industry leading technologies and expertise on protecting both personnel and assets for offshore operations.
“Committed to extensive testing, research and development, Trelleborg has an expansive product range which not only gives optimal performance at every level, but ensures that we are prepared to meet the demands of the offshore market.”
Elastopipe®, a corrosion-free, explosion, impact and jet fire resistant flexible piping system, is one of the products that will be displayed on the stand. Its typical applications are deluge and sprinkler systems, utility and drain water systems, nitrogen distribution systems and chemicals and hydrocarbon transportation. The system is lightweight, durable and offers a 30-year minimum maintenance life, while its corrosion-free performance means system-testing frequency can be reduced to statutory requirements.
Fire Protection solutions will also be on display. Trelleborg’s passive fire protection material Firestop™ can be used for different topside applications to ensure that safety always comes first.
Firestop™ is non-corroding and can withstand jet fires with a heat flux of 390kW/m2, temperatures above +2552°F / +1400°C and flame speeds that exceed the speed of sound. This makes it an ideal material choice for use on offshore oil and gas installations and ships, as well as other hazardous environments.
