Application Method:

Application was carried outin accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-5. Belzona® 5811 was sprayed over the entire vessel as a holding primer. On the intake of the vessel Belzona® 1341 was used for build up problems. Belzona® 1321 was used in the high erosion areas.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Due to Belzona® 1341 lasting in the piping going to the scrubber, the client asked for the Belzona® 1341 to coat the entire scrubber vessel. Belzona® 1321 used to give extra abrasion resistance where required.
