Belzona® Offers A Solution To Repair Bushings

 
 

Industry:

Pulp & Paper (PLPR)

 
 

Application:

Mechanical Power Transmission (MPT)

 
 

Customer Location:

Idaho, USA

 
 

Application Date:

1992

 
 

Application Situation:

Worn out fork bushings.

 
 

Problem:

With the fork bushing worn out, the forks would bind, causing trouble unloading log trucks.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Cast Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet MPT-2.  A former was built in the machine shop and tabs were welded to center it on the "shaft".

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The impossible, alternative solution would require complete disassembly of the front of the log loader in order to be able to put the shaft in a lathe. A new part could have been ordered at a cost of many thousands of dollars. Belzona was the easy choice.
