Belzona® Repairs To Vacuum Steam Jet Ejector - 3 Years And Still Going Strong



General Industry (GIND)



Positive Displacement Pumps (PDP)


Customer Location:

Chemical Plant - Northern Italy


Application Date:

July 2002


Application Situation:

Vacuum steam jet ejector handling H20+HCl and Chloride traces. Temperature up to 100°C (212°F). Maximum pressure 13 Bar.



The steam jet ejector was fragmented into many parts and a replacement was not immediately available.



Belzona® 1391 (Ceramic HT)





Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet PDP-1.


Belzona Facts:

Application has been in service 24 hours a day for three years. Belzona® 1391 was chosen due to the temperature which could from time to time, go higher. Other steam jet ejectors have been repaired at this facility with Belzona® 4301 (Magma CR1 Hi-Build) with the same excellent results. The replacement - ordered some three years ago - remains in stock.
