Belzona® Saves Generator Equipment From Water Damage

 
 

Industry:

Power (POWR)

 
 

Application:

Roof Problem Areas (RPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

WA, USA

 
 

Application Date:

1993

 
 

Application Situation:

Emergency generator room at a hydro dam.

 
 

Problem:

The spillways at this dam shoot the water up into the air, causing the spray to wet the outside walls of the emergency generator room. The water enters from all of the construction joints as well as the exhaust vent.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane)

 

Substrate:

Concrete, Steel and Aluminum

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out according to Belzona Know-How System Leaflet RPA-1 in order to seal all of the construction joints and the exhaust pipe.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Water entry was beginning to damage the emergency generator inside. Sealing all the water out saved the equipment inside. 21 years later, this Belzona application is still keeping the water out.
