Canusa-CPS is the industry leader in field-applied coating technology for the protection of subsea pipelines where the demands for quality, reliability and proven procedures are of the highest importance. With the unique ability to provide field joint coating solutions that are tailored to match offshore construction methods, pipeline design parameters and service conditions, Canusa-CPS is trusted and relied upon by the world’s leading offshore pipelay contractors.
The Canusa HBE-OS is the only liquid coating of its kind serving the offshore marketplace. It is a two-component epoxy coating system specifically formulated to withstand immediate force curing at high build thicknesses, and achieve superior mechanical performance and corrosion resistance. The HBE-OS coating design allows for the fastest offshore cycle-times and protects operating pipelines up to 120°C (248°F). This environmentally friendly, 100% solids, novolac epoxy system can either be spray applied or brush applied to the intended bare steel substrate.
Total installed cost savings
HBE-OS can consistently achieve significant cost savings versus competitive alternatives on a total installed cost basis. Cost savings
directly relate to reductions in labour, mobilization, equipment, maintenance and production delays.
Reduced installation temperatures
HBE-OS installation requires significantly lower application temperatures compared to FBE application. This results in reduced total installation times and reduced damage to the surrounding factory pipe coating, effectively providing a more resilient field joint coating.
Reduced heavy equipment requirements
The HBE-OS installation procedures result in significant reductions in heavy equipment requirements on-board the lay vessel, reducing operating costs, providing for additional working space and eliminating operations associated with calibrating, maintaining and repairing critical installation equipment.
HBE-OS application times are well in accordance with typical productivity requirements for offshore lay barge installation, as proven on major offshore projects around the world.
State-of-the-art epoxy formulation
The high build liquid epoxy formulation is designed to be force cured immediately after brush or spray application to achieve 60 to 90 second cure times while maintaining perfect interface porosity ratings and cross sectional porosity ratings.
Proven global performance
Offshore HBE Technology has been proven on the most challenging offshore conditions with Mobil Cepu, Exxon Mobil, GUFT, Oil Search Ltd. and GASCO.
Compatible with FBE mainline coating
HBE-OS is fully compatible with FBE pipe coatings. The systems have been designed to provide an extremely strong long-term bond (>2,000 psi pull-off adhesion) with low installation temperatures, providing a superior barrier to water intrusion in the field joint area.
