The RPR Induction Technology works by fast transfer of energy to the steel substrate, securing a controlled heating of the surface and fast disbonding of most types of coatings.

The RPR Induction Disbonding System has proved very effective on pipes and live pipeline projects around the world. It efficiently and safely removes coatings such as Coal Tar, Ebonite, 3LPE/3LPP, rubber and other tough linings with thickness up to 30 mm. Stripping with  RPR  is cost effective and does not produce additional grit or water waste, yielding great potential for logistical savings, especially in remote areas.

The coating comes off easily in strips or pieces that can be bagged for disposal without risk of contamination to air, ground or water.

Working distance from the main unit is up to 100m, allowing a flexible and efficient operation. Patented safety features eliminates the risk of overheating the steel, being approved for use on live oil- and gas pipelines.

Why Use RPR Technologies

– The world’s fastest, safest and cleanest method for removing paint and coating from steel surfaces.

HIGHER STRIPPING RATES
Especially effective in removing thick and tough coatings.

NO DOWN TIME
For continuous use on live pipelines.

MINIMIZED WASTE DISPOSAL
The method does not add any grit or water media that needs transport, processing and disposal.

OPERATOR FRIENDLY

  • No high pressure
  • Quiet operation
  • No air-born dust emissions
  • Less protective gear needed

The RPR system is safe for the operator or nearby workers carrying out other maintenance or inspection work.

ENVIRONMENT

  • Easy waste containment
  • Minimal risk of local contamination
  • About 75% less energy consumption compared with traditional methods
  • Far less transport cost and emissions due to no grit and water deposits

Induction Stripping

Induction stripping can be used to quickly remove coatings such as fiberglass liners, coal tar epoxy, chartek fireproofing and other coatings from steel surfaces.

Induction stripping is quiet and does not create any secondary waste.
