Oil and natural gas exploration takes place in a rugged environment where durable, reliable tools and machinery are essential to preserving the integrity of the product as well as the profitability of the industry. Air-cooled heat exchangers are used by the petrochemical industry to cool the oil or gas as it exits the ground to prepare it for refining. Hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) provided a coating that would withstand the harsh, acidic conditions in which the exchangers are used. Furthermore, the fact this product is widely marketed throughout the world, from the Middle East to the Pacific Rim, it must be able to endure crude handling procedures and be fully operational upon arrival.

The time-tested ability of galvanized steel to successfully provide durable cost effective corrosion protection in the oil and gas industry assured the manufacturer HDG was the coating of choice for this product. Although corrosion is a natural phenomenon and can never be completely eliminated, utilizing adequate corrosion-protection systems in salty or acidic environments can drastically reduce costs and increase productivity. The maintenance required for an average-size unit would represent a substantial loss in operational time. In today's market, companies are struggling to build the most cost-efficient product possible, and, as oil prices fluctuate and profit-margins are volatile, HDG is the only proven method that will provide a durable, cost-effective and sustainable protection plan.
