Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Salt producer, Germany

 
 

Application Date:

May 2010

 
 

Application Situation:

Large leaking flange

 
 

Problem:

The leaking flange had to be sealed without dismantling as production could not be interupted.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1391 (Ceramic HT)

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Mid Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with an adapted version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-11. After grit blasting, the nuts and bolts were encapsulated with Belzona® 1111 before Belzona® 1391 was applied by brush, incorporating Reinforcement Tape, to completely seal the circumference of the flange joint.  

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The application was completed in two days and has created a heat resistant seal without having to dismantle the flange. This ensured minimal disruption to production.
