Extended Down Time Averted By Using Belzona

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Mechanical Power Transmission (MPT)

 
 

Customer Location:

Steel manufacturer in Alabama, USA

 
 

Application Date:

1995

 
 

Application Situation:

Shaft spline used as the main transmission of power to the mandril mill.

 
 

Problem:

Excess tolerances in the spline caused problems with the smooth trans-mission of force to the mandril for pipe manufacture.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1121 (Super XL-Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet MPT-5. Belzona® 9411 (Release Agent) was applied to the gear, and Belzona® 1121 (Super XL-Metal) was liberally applied to the spline and gear before mating.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

These large splines would have had to be custom fabricated, which would exceed the normal shutdown time frame. The Belzona application took place in the steel mill’s machine shop.
