Soil-To-Air Pipe Corrosion Repair Services
The soil-to-air interface where pipelines transition from above to below ground is more susceptible to corrosion than either buried or raised sections due to numerous environmental factors, including:
High moisture content
Corrosive pH levels
Eventually, pipes weaken and deteriorate into thin-wall conditions. Wall loss increases the risk of leaks, safety hazards, contamination, and costly downtime. Unfortunately, traditional welded repairs require a lengthy shutdown and service outage. In either case, the lost productivity and inconvenience are highly undesirable.
Moreover, conventional welded repairs require lengthy shutdowns and service outages which can lead to a substantial loss in productivity. Banks Industrial Group (BIG) has a better solution: Belzona polymeric repair compounds.
These repair compounds provide long-term corrosion protection with excellent resistance to moisture, oil, and chemical attack. They can also be applied in-situ with minimum downtime, enabling you to easily prolong infrastructure service life without sacrificing daily productivity.
BIG’s soil-to-air pipe corrosion repair services will help you:
Maintain safe pipeline operation
Prevent soil line corrosion
Repair thin-wall damage with minimum downtime

Belzona Polymeric Repair Compounds Can Solve Soil-to-Air Pipe Corrosion with Little-to-No Downtime
Polymeric repair compounds allow you to restore damaged pipes rather than replace them. Restoration offers significant savings in time and material by prolonging the service life of existing infrastructure and avoiding the lengthy process of welded pipe replacement.
Banks Industrial Group utilizes a combination of polymeric repair compounds with proven strength and durability in harsh industrial environments. Repairs are quick and are performed without hot work for in-situ application—with minimal-or-no downtime.
During restoration, BIG uses Belzona repair compounds to repair through-wall corrosion damage and rebuild thin-wall conditions. The team also uses Belzona SuperWrap II to restore lost structural integrity. After the structural integrity is repaired, the team seals the soil line area with ST Barrier to protect the pipe against corrosive soil conditions. ST Barrier is a moisture-tolerant epoxy coating that resists oil and chemical contamination, making it ideal for oil and gas applications.
