According to the Department of Transportation (USDT), the United States has the largest network of fuel pipelines in the world. Many facilities utilize pipelines to transport oil, oil-related products or other substances. Over time, these pipelines can become damaged due to prolonged use, corrosion or weathering. To protect your facility from leaks and spills, it is essential to ensure that pipelines are properly repaired and maintained.
Basic Concepts is the industry leader in secondary containment and spill maintenance solutions. For pipelines repair or maintenance, spray coating solutions from Basic Concepts will help to repair cracked or damaged pipelines and prevent harmful substances from escaping into the environment.
To help you find the spray coating option that is best suited to your facility, here is an overview of the regulatory requirements for pipeline maintenance and the spray coating solutions that can help with pipeline repair and maintenance.
Regulatory requirements for Pipeline Maintenance
Secondary containment requirements are intended to prevent leaked contaminants from having a deleterious impact on the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that containment systems—including pipelines or other systems used to transport oil or oil-related products—be regularly inspected to ensure they are not leaking hazardous liquids into navigable waterways.
Repair Damaged Pipelines with Spray Coatings
Whether your facility uses pipelines to transport oil, oil-related products or other substances, all pipelines are subject to wear and tear over time. To avoid regulatory noncompliance, it is important to regularly inspect these containment systems to ensure proper functionality.
Spray coatings can help repair damaged areas and prevent contaminants from leaking into the environment. Here is a look at the spray coating solutions from Basic Concepts that can help your facility achieve regulatory compliance.
