Industry:

Water / Wastewater (WATR)

 
 

Application:

 
 

Customer Location:

North Idaho, USA

 
 

Application Date:

October 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

40 year old irrigation/potable water pump.

 
 

Problem:

The pump assembly was heavily corroded and the 40 year old pipe was corroded bad enough that it had to be replaced.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 5811DW2 (DW Immersion Grade)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The surface was grit blasted to Belzona standards of a near white finish. Then Belzona 5811DW was brush applied in two coats.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

After 40 years of use without any surface protection, the existing pipe was damaged and unusable due to heavy corrosion, resulting in the need to replace it. Using Belzona 5811DW will allow the pump and pipe to be in use even longer without corrosion. Due to the NSF certification, it will not contaminate the water supply with any harmful chemicals.
