Painting – Specification for Pipeline Service

Each component of a pipeline system, including pipeline segments that remain exposed to the atmosphere, need to be cleaned and coated with a material suitable for the prevention of atmospheric corrosion.

This training covers the painting of tanks, all above ground piping, pipe sections exposed to the atmosphere, pumping units, valves, light standards, supported or unsupported pipe spans, and all other miscellaneous equipment.

Lessons include:

  • Surface preparation and risk mitigation techniques.
  • Proper handling and storage of coating materials.
  • Preferred methods for coating application.
  • Site clean-up procedures.
