Belzona® Repairs Hydraulic Ram In Service For Over Ten Years



Pulp & Paper (PLPR)



Mechanical Power Transmission (MPT)


Customer Location:

Paper Mill in Alabama, USA


Application Date:



Application Situation:

Hydraulic ram for a Layboy Table.



The hydraulic ram was scored due to a packing failure and was unable to build up enough pressure to raise and lower the table and transfer the stack of paper onto the conveyor system.



Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)



Chromed Steel


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet MPT-3.


Belzona Facts:

The edges of the scores were squared off and deepened with a side grinder. Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal) was then applied to the prepared surface and dressed down with a file and emery cloth. The application has been in service for over 10 years. As long as the packing and seal area is maintained, the repair should last for a very long time.
