The Department of Defense (DoD) Corrosion Conference is the largest corrosion-specific event the DoD hosts. The conference boasted an impressive technical program that encompassed all branches of the military. Corrosion of military equipment and infrastructure costs approximately $20 billion every year, and the DoD is looking for new solutions for personnel who procure, use, and maintain military material, equipment and facilities/infrastructure.
ePIPE is part of the DoD solution for combating corrosion, leaking pipes and lead leaching. Presenting at the Conference was ACE DuraFlo’s, CEO, Larry Gillanders. The topic, “Rehabilitating Small Diameter Piping Systems.” The presentation covered the application methods of the in-place restoration of small diameter piping systems, commercialized under US Patents #7160574, #7517409 and #7858149.
The patented ePIPE epoxy lining process has already been utilized by the Army Corp of Engineers and other branches of the military. DOD related projects utilizing the patented ePIPE process of corrosion control include:
i) Fort Knox, KY for Administration and Readiness Buildings,
ii) Buckley AFB, Co, Hanger 81 for corrosion protection to radiant heating systems,
iii) USNS Dahl and Watkins – MSC Watson Class Vehicle Cargo Ships, for restoration of system critical lines for vessel propulsion system,
iv) Port Hueneme, CA – Naval Housing, restoration of hot and cold domestic water piping
(v) Davis Air Force Base, Arizona, restoration of domestic water pipes experiencing pinhole leaks. Information exchanged between the DoD, private industry, and other government agencies shared at this forum was aimed at reducing the negative impacts of corrosion on readiness and safety.
