ChemLine® Coatings Deliver Excellent Corrosion Results at Coal-Fired Plant in Turkey

Booster fansChemLine® continues to provide solutions for a range of industrial applications in Turkey, according to APC’s local company based in Istanbul, ‘MarineLine Turkiye.’ The following mini-case study highlights one of these recent successes and illustrates how ChemLine® protective coatings are setting a new benchmark in corrosion protection around the globe.

Earlier this year, the Eren Energy coal-fired power plant in Turkey had two carbon steel booster fans in flue gas desulfurization (FGD) stacks coated. One of the fans was coated with Advanced Polymer Coating’s ChemLine® 2400/32 and the other fan with a competitor’s coating. The main objective of the booster fans is to increase flue gas pressure to promote flow through the ducts and to the top of the chimney.

According to a report from Eren Energy, the high-performance ChemLine® coating performed as expected and the coating continues to provide service. However, the competitor’s coating was virtually destroyed and now needs to be replaced. Eren Energy has specified the ChemLine® 2400/32 system for this other booster fan as they are very pleased with the coating’s performance.
