Application:

Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)

 
 

Customer Location:

Corn Processing Plant, West Tennessee USA

 
 

Application Date:

2007

 
 

Application Situation:

Carbon Steel equipment handling corn

 
 

Problem:

Carbon Steel was lasting less than 1 year and down time was a continuous problem in the plant. A lining which would take the wear from corn and soyabean was needed.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1812 (Ceramic Carbide FP)
 

Substrate:

Carbon Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Applications were carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-13. After grit blasting the newly fabricated chutes, spouts, and mixing blades, 1/2 inch of Belzona® 1812 was applied to the wear areas.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona has doubled and in some cases tripled the life of the equipment. Previous linings had delaminated and contaminated the product.
