Belzona® Rebuilds Shaft On Blanching Machine

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Mechanical Power Transmission (MPT)

 
 

Customer Location:

Frozen Food Manufacturer UK

 
 

Application Date:

February 2005

 
 

Application Situation:

Bearing seat area of blanching machine shaft.

 
 

Problem:

Shaft was worn in the bearing area. This increased pressure on the bearings resulting in a very short service life.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet MPT-2.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Previously this shaft had been welded up in position and the bearing seat area rough ground back to size. The shaft cannot be taken out without major strip down so an in-situ repair has to be done. The Belzona forming technique produced the precise required diameter.
