Industry:

Mining and Quarrying (MINQ)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Limestone quarry, SW, England

 
 

Application Date:

September 2012

 
 

Application Situation:

Dust suppression bowser had suffered damage and corrosion to its hydraulic tank causing leakage.

 
 

Problem:

Traditional welding repair had failed to seal the tank. The customer required a fast cold curing solution to bring the bowser back into service.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111(Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-1.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The time required to remove all the ancillaries and replace the tank would have taken several days which was not acceptable as dust levels in the quarry were high increasing the risk of incident due to poor visibility. The Belzona solution had the bowser back in action the next day.
