Belzona® Gives Abrasion Resistance To Elbow



General Industry (GIND)



Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)


Customer Location:

Wood Product Manufacturer, ON, Canada


Application Date:

August 2015


Application Situation:

Worn pipe elbow



Blown wood particles create loss of wall thickness due to abrasion, eventually leading to blow-outs and loss of production.



Belzona 1812 (Ceramic Carbide FP)





Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-8 for rebuilding worn pipe elbows. Belzona 1812 was selected as the appropriate Belzona material and applied to the wear areas of the elbow and the replaceable back, keeping within the designated wearing surface. The application was completed using a rigid applicator.


Belzona Facts:

The wood chips used to produce the particleboard at the Ontario facility are recycled. The wood chips, fibers and particles are moved around the facility and processes by mechanical and pneumatic means. A change of direction in the pneumatic system such as an elbow creates a wear point in the system. A hardened weld overlay solution had previously only lasted four months. Thus, the Belzona solution was selected by the customer.
