Process plants are complex networks of structures, vessels, equipment and above and below-grade piping. A large refinery may have 30 million square feet of exposed facilities, which must be protected from corrosion.
A process plant may have over 20 different generic coating systems that are applicable to the varying conditions within the facility. In addition there may be some specialty protective coatings or linings used, such as intumescent epoxy coatings or linings for fireproofing, or complex rubber or plastic internal linings applied in water or chemical treating equipment.

Experienced management, detailed preplanning, and a cultural focus on quality and safety assure that process projects are completed safely, within schedule and meeting or exceeding specifications.
