Industry:

Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

School, Kansas City

 
 

Application Date:

September 2008

 
 

Application Situation:

Leaking condensate return tank

 
 

Problem:

During summer maintenance of this facilities boiler plant, the condensate return tank was found to be severely corroded and leaking, with concern for its ability to make it through another heating season.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1311 (Ceramic R Metal)
Belzona® 4181 (AHR Magma-Quartz)
 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out using a modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-1. The tank was lifted for access and mechanically prepared with the MBX Bristle Blaster. A heavy gauge steel plate was fabricated and bonded into place with Belzona® 4181. Belzona® 1311 was then used to reinforce the tank ends.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzonas ability to solve this situation quickly saved several thousands of dollars of the schools operating money just prior to the conversion to heating season.
