Application Date:

October 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Wastewater pump

 
 

Problem:

This wastewater pump was originally rebuilt in 1989 with Belzona when the lower portion of the pump bowl had eroded severely causing small pinholes to develop in the side casing.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1311 (Ceramic R Metal)

Belzona 1321 (Ceramic S Metal)

 

Substrate:

Cast Iron

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets CEP 3 & CEP-5.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

This pump has remained in constant service since the 1989 repair. It was taken out of service for a major inspection. The inspection revealed that small sections of the original repair were showing signs of delamination along the edges so it was decided that these would be repaired while the pump was down.
