Belzona® Restores Felt Return Roll

 
 

Industry:

Pulp & Paper (PLPR)

 
 

Application:

Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)

 
 

Customer Location:

Paper mill in the south of England

 
 

Application Date:

April 2001

 
 

Application Situation:

Felt return roll.

 
 

Problem:

The fiberglass roll coating had worn to such an extent that the fibrous reinforcement was protruding from the surface of the coating, allowing water to ingress into the coating.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal)

 

Substrate:

Fibrous reinforcement sheet

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-12.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona® 1321 was easily applied on site, leading to a quick turnaround time which was reduced the cost of the application. Due to the greater abrasion resistance of the Belzona® 1321 over fiberglass, the Belzona System has considerably extended the life of the roll.
