How are weld seams on the EUGAL pipeline efficiently protected from corrosion?
Constructing natural gas pipelines is challenging: approx. 48 weld seams need permanent protection. DENSOMAT®-11 quickly and reliably wraps pipes of 1400 nominal width with DENSOLEN® tapes. The wrapping machine, with an in-built petrol engine, applies the tapes almost automatically and works with the dual tape system in a single step (Fig. 1).
See for yourself! Take a look at how simple the tapes are to work with on this video!
Pipe rehabillitation - new installation method in water
The weld seams of a DN 1200 drinking water pipeline are encased in a diffusion-resistant protective hose as part of a new installation method that floats in water. Just ten minutes after the application of the DENSOLEN®-AS50 tape, the pipe is pushed into a tunnel flooded with water (Fig. 2).

Improved groundwater protection with TOK®-Sil Resist
DENSO is the first company to receive approval for a bitumen-based joint system for asphalt and concrete. The solution protects biogas plants and mobile silos from hazardous liquid leakage. Make use of the benefits of TOK®-Sil Resist for your plants:
- first-time protection both of concrete and asphalt joints,
- ideal for the interface between horizontal and vertical joints,
approved following joint development by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt), Kiwa Polymerinstitut and DENSO (Fig. 3).
