TSA

Thermally Sprayed Aluminium is one of the longest lasting, toughest coatings available.

Lasting for 25-30 years without maintenance, TSA completely protects your assets for three to five times longer than standard paint – that’s only one spell of downtime every 25 years instead of three, four or five.

GCG is one of the only company in the world to have been providing TSA to the oil and gas industry for over 20 years, giving you the peace of mind that you are using the worldwide experts for a skilled, safe and top quality service.

What is TSA Used For?

Thermal spraying is a technology which protects and greatly extends the life of a wide variety of products in the most hostile environments and in situations where coatings are vital for longevity and integrity of pipework and other essential equipment.

The variety of metallised coatings include finishing coatings, such as anti-corrosion or decorative coatings, and engineering coatings such as wear resistant and thermal barrier coatings, making it ideal for a variety of subsea and topside machinery and apparatus.

Thermal spraying is carried out in a wide range of anti-corrosion and engineering markets, including oil and gas, construction, petrochemical and marine.

How TSA is Being Used

On location at Bacton gas terminal in Norfolk, TSA was applied to 2”, 4”, 6” and 8” pipework to protect against erosion and corrosion.

GCG applied TSA to fractionation columns at Shell’s Mossmorran plant to provide cathodic protection as well as a barrier to corrosion. This was the first large scale application of TSA to vessels in live process areas in Shell.
