Belzona® Protects Mixer Blades From Abrasion

 
 

Industry:

 
 

Application:

 
 

Customer Location:

Lawrence, KS, USA

 
 

Application Date:

September 2007

 
 

Application Situation:

A scheduled outage for major plant repairs included the remediation of damaged mixer blades with Belzona elastomers.

 
 

Problem:

The mixer blades in this crystalization tank exhibited serious damage due to abrasion. This is a very important component in the Flue Gas Desulfurization system.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 2111 (D & A Hi-Build Elastomer)

Belzona 2131 (D & A Fluid Elastomer)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The Belzona trained contractor mechanically prepared each blade prior to rebuilding to the original contour with Belzona 2111. Then, the blade circumferences were further protected with multiple coats of Belzona 2131.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

By choosing to repair the blades in-situ instead of replacement, tremendous financial savings were realized. This allowed the maintenance planners to have an additional budget to repair even more blades in an additive tank during the same scheduled outage.
