Application Date:

August 2014

Cicra. 177mm O.D. Leaking Pipe

The dry bran within the pipe was causing abrasion leading to a 10mm hole on the outside of a large bend.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1321 (Ceramic S Metal)
Belzona 1812 (Ceramic Carbide FP)

 

Substrate:

Carbon Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-11. Belzona 1321 was used to wet out the plates and the substrate, before Belzona 1812 was used to bond them in place. A further layer of Belzona 1812 was used to encapsulate the plates. As there was excess Belzona 1321 this was used to create a more aesthetically pleasing finish.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The application was carried out within a 6 hour window saving the customer an expensive shutdown situation. The customer is now using Belzona for similar issues on site. Belzona 1812 exhibits excellent abrasion resistance making it suitable for this environment.
