Belzona® Repairs Dresser Coupling

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

 
 

Customer Location:

Missouri, USA

 
 

Application Date:

December 2009

 
 

Application Situation:

Dresser coupling out of service because it would not seal properly.  

 
 

Problem:

The newly fabricated fitting had a slightly flat spot at the joining weld that would not allow a complete seal with the dresser coupling.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Cast Iron and Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The area of concern was identified and ground to bare metal with a rough finish. The flat area was then rebuilt with Belzona 1111. The proper contour was verified by using a suitable template. 

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona provided the quickest alternative as the interior coating could not suffer any damage. Thus, the Belzona repair was ideal for the customer. The alternative method of welding was ruled out as the heat would have damaged the pipe's interior paint system. Belzona 1111 will provide many years of proven in-service protection without the expense of component replacement.
