Application Date:

1999

 
 

Application Situation:

The cossette scroll located at the diffuser output.

 
 

Problem:

Extensive abrasion, up to 7.5mm (30 mils), of the existing glass flake coating and the 25mm (1 inch) thick tubular shaft.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1811 (Ceramic Carbide)

 

Substrate:

Carbon steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-14.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

If abrasive wear had continued, it would have ultimately caused the structural failure of the scroll shaft. By protecting the scroll shaft with a Belzona® abrasion resistant material during the annual outage, only minor sacrifical wear of the product occurred, thereby leaving the substrate undamaged. Unlike an "imitator's" system, the Belzona protection was found upon inspection at the next outage to be unaffected.
