Belzona® Restores Steel Mill Flume

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Steel Mill, USA

 
 

Application Date:

December 2007

 
 

Application Situation:

Badly eroded waste flume at a steel mill.

 
 

Problem:

Highly abrasive waste material was rapidly eroding the flume, carving out a larger cross-sectional area than original designed. Flow velocity dropped as a result and the flume was not longer functioning as designed thus allowing build up of waste within the flume.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4124 (Bulk Fill)
Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz)
Belzona® 1812 (Ceramic Carbide FP)
 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-9.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

A stainless steel trough was also considered but the Belzona solution was $65,000 less expensive. Polyurea coatings were rejected due to their intolerance to damp concrete. Only the Belzona repair offered the cost savings, longevity, and application characteristics required by the steel mill.
