Centrifugal Pumps (CEP)

 
 

Customer Location:

Forney, Texas, USA

 
 

Application Date:

May 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

40 year old separator at recycling paper mill.

 
 

Problem:

Extreme abrasion producing a hole through ceramic tile and steel causing a possible shutdown.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1811 (Ceramic Carbide)

 

Substrate:

Mild steel and ceramic tiles

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet CEP-6. The job timeline was critical. For surface preparation, the areas were aggregate blasted. Belzona 1811 was applied with a backer plate over the hole. Belzona 1811 was then applied over other worn areas. The vessel was force cured for start up.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

A hole in the separator was shooting out water and valuable product, causing a safety issue as well as a money loss. Belzona was able to repair the hole in a single 8 hour shutdown with no lost time.
