Industry:

Steel (STEL)

 
 

Application:

Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)

 
 

Customer Location:

Metal processor, Port Kembla, Australia

 
 

Application Date:

February 2009

 
 

Application Situation:

Damaged concrete lip on a 10 metre diameter coal storage tank

 
 

Problem:

Constant abrasion had caused severe wear to the transition lip on the concrete coal chute. The abrasion was so severe that the reinforcement bars had been exposed and in some cases were also worn through.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4111 (Magma Quartz)

 

Substrate:

Reinforced Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet SHM-13.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 4111 was chosen as it could be applied with minimal preparation, would bond tenaciously to the existing concrete and would be better able to resist the abrasion in future to ensure a long lasting repair. Also enabled smooth transition so minimizing future abrasion.
