World Pipelines’ Senior Editor, Elizabeth Corner, talks to Ron Raphoon, Denso ARO Specialist, to discuss protecting pipes during HDD installation.

Denso creates bespoke and off-the-shelf solutions that provide enduring protection against corrosion and chemical attack to buried and exposed pipes, valves, fittings, steelwork, marine structures, tanks and concrete bunded areas.

In this spotlight session, Elizabeth and Ron review Denso North America’s recent article for World Pipelines, entitled ‘Protecting pipes during pullback’.

The article, which was published in the Coatings & Corrosion 2021 issue of World Pipelines, describes key considerations for protecting pipelines and pipeline coatings during HDD pipeline installation. Ron highlights the ways that a pipeline can sustain damage during an HDD pull.
