Customer Location:

Gas Processing Plant, UK

 
 

Application Date:

August 2007

 
 

Application Situation:

Corroded and holed 3 inch diameter nozzle

 
 

Problem:

Corrosion had caused severe wastage of a nozzle which resulted in two holes breaking through.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1291 (ES Metal)
Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)
 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leflet VPF-11a. Plates were tailor made on site to completely encapsulate the nozzle. Once bonded, the whole nozzle was also wrapped.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Due to the location, attempting to hot-work/weld repair the nozzles, was not an option. Replacing the nozzle was not possible within a reasonable time frame and would have been very expensive and caused major plant down time. The work was done via a Belzona approved application company and saved the client Millions in lost downtime.
