Belzona® Upgrades Spirits Containment Area

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Distillery, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

2011

 
 

Application Situation:

Spirit containment area

 
 

Problem:

The existing protective system had failed. The chemical containment area could no longer be relied upon to prevent liquid loss into the groundwater/watercourse in the event of a spillage.

 
 

Products:

  1. Belzona® 4131 (Magma screed) 
  2. Belzona® 4141 (Magma Build) 
  3. Belzona® 5811 (Immersion Grade)
 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-15. Belzona® 4131 and Belzona® 4141 were used to repair the degraded sections of the walls and to create fillets to all horizontal and vertical corners of the bund. The floor was screeded with Belzona® 4131 at 6mm to provide maximum impact resistance. A two coat system of Belzona® 5811 was then applied to all the internal surfaces of the bund.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona system provides excellent resistance to permeation. The reinforcement of wall and floor joints will ensure long term containment without cracking or breaks in the bund lining.
