Title: Case Study: Northern Chile Copper Mine Water Supply Pipeline Joint Coating

The copper mining industry in Northern Chile requires transporting large amounts of water over miles of pipeline. The water, used in the ore refining process and slurry pipelines, is sourced from basins in the Andes mountains. If not considered in the design of the pipeline, this water contains corrosive elements which can cause the pipeline to prematurely corrode.
