Offshore and Onshore Refineries
Offshore surface preparation is challenging. Remote access, aggressive environment, and risks to worker safety and environmental challenges just to name a few.
GMA works extensively with global oil & gas asset owners to ensure our blasting abrasives meet the stringent standards set to ensure asset protection and longevity. GMA Garnet™ is particularly suited to Offshore Platforms due to:
- Very low dust emissions, reducing risk to surrounding sensitive equipment
- High blasting and cleaning efficiency, leading to low abrasive consumption, minimizing material transport and storage offshore
- Creating the required surface profile with consistent peak density for stronger coating adhesion
- Exceptional surface cleanliness with minimal abrasive embedment, for better corrosion resistance and substrate integrity
- GMA Garnet™ is an inert, sustainable natural mineral with little to no recordable heavy metals or worker risks & hazards.
