Application Date:

August 1997

 
 

Application Situation:

Corrosion of safety immersion tanks in the coke manufacturing plant

 
 

Problem:

These tanks were damaged around the connection and the walls through the chemical attack of the contained medium (coke gas in water) and local steam. The temperatures ranged from 50°C to 104°C

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Aluminium

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System leaflet TCC-1. A formed section was made up. Belzona® 1111 was then applied to both surfaces and then assembled, using metal strapping to hold in place whilst the Belzona cured. Excess material was used as a fillet around the plate. After completion of cure the straps were removed.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona repair provided a stress free repair to the corroded areas. In addition to plate bonding a corroded stub pipe was also repaired 9see KHIA Vol xxxxxxxx)
