Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Centrifugal Pumps (CEP)

 
 

Customer Location:

Aluminium Casting Manufacturer, N. Ireland

 
 

Application Date:

May 2008

 
 

Application Situation:

Cooling tower at this major manufacturer of Aluminium castings for the motor industry

 
 

Problem:

Dosing chemicals designed to control algae growth had led to severe corrosion throughout the cooling tower, with holes occurring in places.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)
Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade)

 

Substrate:

Galvanized steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets TCC-1 & TCC-5. After removing roof and removing all the packing (used to increase surface area), Belzona® 1111 was used to bond doubler plates over holed/thinned areas before the entire surface was protected with Belzona® 5811.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona repair and protection procedure eliminated the need to totally replace the cooling tower which would have been hugely more costly. In addition the Belzona protection system will ensure long term prtotection from future corrosion issues.
