RAE Energy Launches Wehocoat Field Joint Coating Solution
Houston, Texas – February 25, 2015 – At RAE Energy, we are committed to continuing our trend of providing innovative and leading edge pipeline service solutions to our clients. We are excited to announce the global launch of Wehocoat Technologies, our 3 Layer Polypropylene (3LPP) delivery system. Wehocoat delivers a direct extrusion of Polypropylene or Polyethylene topcoat on to an FBE and adhesive coated pipe. Wehocoat differentiates itself from competing products and solutions through Quality, Speed and Reliability.
Wehocoat is applied by a driven roller, ensuring an even melt distribution and pressure providing adequate weld seam coverage. This system provides a smooth transition from the field joint to the parent coating with minimal profile. The system is fully PLC controlled and self-adjusting for different pipe sizes. The high level of automation minimizes the risk of operator error as seen in other manual 3 Layer systems.
Wehocoat has a wide range of pipe diameters that can be accommodated with a single unit, minimizing downtime. The Wehocoat delivery provides a repeatable quality coating joint to joint and all process parameters are recorded and logged in the PLC system. Using Wehocoat will provide the highest level of Quality, coupled with the efficient Speed and Reliability our customers have come to expect.
