Customer Location:

A Large Multi-National Agricultural Chemical Company


Application Date:

October 1993


Application Situation:

10 ft. diameter x 12 ft. long filter drum used to manufacture Aureomycin



Leaks developed at the welds joining the vacuum lines to the face of the drum. The inside diameter of the drum was so deteriorated that there was some flexing at the drum face.



Belzona® 1221 (Super E Metal)
Belzona® 2311 (SR Elastomer)



Stainless steel vacuum piping, carbon steel drum


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How Leaflet TCC-1.


Belzona Facts:

After six weeks, the customer decided to check the repairs, believing that they were probably beginning to fail. Six repair areas were ground off, and no problems were observed. They were re-done as before, and the drum returned to service, saving the company over $3 million.
