IntelliCOAT™

Automation and Process Control

IntelliCOAT™ is the world’s first fully-automated system for the controlled application of heat shrinkable sleeves. The field friendly system provides a step-change enhancement in the quality, consistency and productivity of field-applied coatings by means of automation. In conjunction with Canusa-CPS’s PE and PP based Factory Grade™ coating materials, the IntelliCOAT™ system is able to deliver a seamless, high-performance, three-layer anti-corrosion coating system for the entire length of a pipeline.

Quality

  • IntelliCOAT™ automates best practice installation techniques to produce high quality field joint coating applications that are fully repeatable from joint to joint. Installation programs are developed to meet specific project needs and can be qualified through comprehensive test programs before implementation for all coating requirements during pipeline construction.

Consistency

  • The IntelliCOAT™ application process is precisely controlled by a PLC-based control system with closed-loop feedback control. Once the application program is qualified, operators simply lower the IntelliCOAT™ coil onto the pre-positioned sleeve, and the system takes care of the rest, minimizing all possible sources of variation.

Productivity

  • Using IntelliCOAT™, a contractor can precisely forecast the daily field joint coating productivity, without reliance on operators to conduct any labour-intensive work steps. The application time per joint is pre-set at the qualification stage so production can proceed on schedule.

Safety

  • The IntelliCOAT™ system delivers enhanced operator safety through its enclosed heating design and rapid heat up and cool down times. IntelliCOAT™ eliminates the need for gas storage facilities and the open flames associated with conventional field joint coating application methods.
