Benarx Solutions invests actively in developing better insulation systems and products for the global Oil&Gas industry. In addition to development of new materials and solutions, we also work to improve the test standards for fire testing, better understanding the factors contributing to Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI), as well as other factors that might contribute to a longer life time of the plants.

Passive fire protection testing and certification

Passive fire protection testing and certification

Understanding the certifications of passive fire protection systems for Oil&Gas producing facilities can sometimes be a challenge. First we need to consider why and how passive fire protection is applied. In most cases the passive fire protection (PFP) is used to protect the integrity of steel structures, pipelines including valves and flanges or other process equipment that may contain hydrocarbons, allowing for a controlled shutdown and evacuation of personnel in an event of fire.
