Industry:

Marine (MRNE)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Tank Terminal, South Louisiana, USA

 
 

Application Date:

September 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Firewater piping at a tank terminal.

 
 

Problem:

The piping was old and had not been taken care of. Many clamps on the lines, but leaks were starting to appear under the clamps. There were other places in the line where actual holes had appeared from corrosion.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1121 (Super XL Metal)

Belzona 9341 (Reinforcement Sheet)

 

Substrate:

Carbon steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified Belzona Know-How System  Leaflet VPF-11.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Customer is very satisfied with the fact that the pipe will not corrode any more due to the fact a polymer steel now encapsulates the piping. Belzona was picked as other wraps had been tried and failed and the clamps were not sufficient to adequately stop the leaks.
