Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating Industries
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has experienced major developments in the pipeline industrys. To meet the demands of the harsh environment and for the protection of Cross-Country and Sub-Sea Oil, Water and Gas Pipelines against corrosion.
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating Industries was established in 1954. Since those early days when coat and wrap was used. The company has rapidly moved to new technological advantages available today and has three separate facilities in the Kingdom equipped with the latest coating technology.
Internal Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating applying FBE to internal sur faces of Pipes, Fittings, Spools and downhole tubular’s FBE can apply for sizes from 2-1/2” to 80” OD. Internal fusion bonded Epoxy Coating can be used for treated seawater service, sour gas, Gtude service, Wasia water service and potable water.
Since 1978 the Double Jointing Plant utilizes a 5 station
Double – Jointing system to join two 40 foot sections of
pipe into one 80 foot section for diameter of 10” to 60”
Double jointing contributes to substantial transportation
savings and reduces the number of eld weld by one – half.
After the welding is completed 100% X-Ray is per formed
our radiographic lm processing facility is equipped with
two fully automatic lm processing units for speed and
Internal Shop or Field Girth Weld Coating
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating developed the capability to coat the internal girth weld area of the coated pipe from 8” and up to 60” diameter.
Capabilities can be developed for larger diameters if so required by clients. The service co tributes to providing an end-to-end corrosion protection system with fusion bonded epoxy using. The most modern internal robotic equipment.
Coating for Heat Exchangers,
Vessels and Boilers
Applied coating on internal and external surface of tube bundles, vessels, tanks to prevents foulings and incrustation in the heat exchangers and enhances life of the same. Maintenance/ cleaning costs are greatly reduced due to less maintenance
requirement. Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating was the first to offer sakaphen Coating Technology in the Middle East.
Fabrication (welding) of spools, sleeves
Shop welding has advantages over field welding.
Spools can be welded and coated in the location in ideal conditions.
Internal Cement Morter Lining
This type of lining / coating can be applied to pipe, fittings and pre-fabricates spools. The coating is used for potable water.
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating line travel equipment for hydro blast cleaning grit preblasting, spray liquid coating of the external sur face of pipe. Pipelines where tape coatings or similar coating has failed can be field rehabilitated in situ techniques to remove failed coating and reapplied with liquid coating.
External Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating was the first applicator in the Middle East to apply external fusion bonded epoxy coating from 2” and up to 80”, single layer or dual system
for stander and high temperature. Service.
Concrete Weight Coating
Concrete coating by compression method is applied to pipe diameters from 3” and upto 60” with coating thicknesses ranging from 1” to 6” and concrete densities
is 190 pounds per cubic foot. The compression method can apply concrete coating over any type of corrosion
Al-Qahtani has the most modern and technically advanced facility which includes Enclosed Manual Blasting and Coating EXT / INT High Temperature Powder / Liquid Coating of all types of Pre-Fabricated Spools, Fittings, Bends and Valves. Also, Al-Qahtani has a conveyorized oven with automatic speed control used to cure the products.”
External Three-Layer Polyethylene/Polypropylene
Al-Qahtani Pipe Coating was the first in the world to apply 3 layer polyethylene coating on 80” diameter pipe for SWCC (Saline Water Conversion Corporation) Water Pipeline Project.
3 layer polyethylene or polypropylene can be applied from
3” and upto 80” diameter.
