FBE W/ARO Overcoat Weight

FBE W/ARO Overcoat Weight

FBE W/ARO Overcoat Weight

Good Day All,

I am looking to see how much weight is added to pipe that has standard FBE w/ARO Coating.


323.9mm OD x 11.9mmm Wall Thickness. If this pipe has FBE and ARO coating how much weight is added to the standard weight of the bare pipe?

RE: FBE W/ARO Overcoat Weight

Try the below way. Calculate the volume of each coating and multiply it by density of the coating. Then, the outcome will be weight.

The surface area that FBE coating(Outer surface) * the DFT of the FBE coating (Max DFT recommended) * the density of the FBE coating + The surface area that ARO coating applied (Outer surface) * the DFT of the ARO coating (Max DFT recommended) * the density of the ARO coating

Note that the above way is kind of conservative by considering "outer surface area" & Max DFT.
