Belzona® Bridges The Gap

 
 

Industry:

Water / Wastewater (WATR)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Wastewater treatment plant - United Kingdom

 
 

Application Date:

February 1999

 
 

Application Situation:

A new pipe work section required connecting to existing pipe work.

 
 

Problem:

Having to connect new, industrial polypropylene pipe to the old iron pipe which is severely pitted, making it impossible to obtain a water tight seal for the joint sealing ring.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Iron

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets VPF-1 and VPF-10.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Due to restricted and muddy working conditions it was not possible to allow machinery to be used for this repair, therefore a hand-held angle grinder was used to prepare the surface. The Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal) made a smooth collar around the pipe thus providing a watertight seal.
