Belzona® Saves Significant Downtime For Cement Plant

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Mechanical Power Transmission (MPT)

 
 

Customer Location:

Cement plant - United Arab Emirates

 
 

Application Date:

May 2005

 
 

Application Situation:

Crusher shaft

 
 

Problem:

Bearing area of the 155mm shaft was down due to bearing failure, causing the entire operation to shut down.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1121 (Super XL-Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet MPT-1 and MPT-2.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

An alternative method would be to weld and grind the shaft, but this is not possible in situ. Removal of the shaft from the equipment would require over 100 hours of downtime as no spare part was available. With Belzona, this customer was back up and running in hours, not days, saving significant amounts of money from lost production and downtime.
