Finding a Better Lining for Free Water Knockout Vessels

March 02, 2023
Sponsored by: Sherwin Williams
Inside free water knockout vessels (FWKOs) used in the upstream energy market, high pressures and temperatures separate oil, gas and water from fluids extracted from the earth. These stresses present challenges to the coatings used to line such vessels. Add to that corrosive attacks from some of the most aggressive materials to come out of the ground, and it might seem like no coating can stand a chance at remaining adhered inside a FWKO over the long term.

Recently, there has been an increase in worker health and safety awareness across industries. Many have lost their lives due to worksite incidents and occupational illnesses. The Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) issued guidelines since 2018 to develop sustainability journeys and reporting for health and safety. It is imperative for management to have safety solutions backed by digital frameworks in the worksite to minimise accidents. Wearable technologies like SmartWatches detect anomalies and prevent accidents with real-time alerts.
