Belzona® Offers Protection To Metal Wear Plates

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)

 
 

Customer Location:

Arthur, ON, Canada

 
 

Application Date:

March 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Metal wear plates in a blast machine.

 
 

Problem:

The wear plates were constantly eroded by the blast media and only lasted weeks in service before being replaced. A big problem arose when the replacement plates became delayed in production and therefore unavailable.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

Belzona 2111 (D & A Hi-Build Elastomer)

Belzona 9811 (Alumina Tiles)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-7 for bonding and grouting tiles and wear plates. Belzona 1111 was used to rebuild the worn areas and to bond Belzona 9811 as soon as the worn areas were filled. Belzona 9811 was removed from the sheet and placed tightly together to eliminate grouting. The plates were then coated with Belzona 2111 for added protection from the impact of the blast material.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The repaired plates last as long as the original plates but they can be rebuilt and put back into service for a fraction of the cost. Also, the customer does not have to worry about any delays in production of the plates.
