Belzona® Provides Flexible Acid Resistant Tank Lining

 
 

Industry:

Power (POWR)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Power Plant, China

 
 

Application Date:

October 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Previous protection failed in 37% hydrochloric acid tanks.

 
 

Problem:

The acid tanks contain 37% hydrochloric acid and were previously protected with an elastomer lining. In winter, when the plant transferred the hydrochloric acid from the cold environment (<0°C) to room temperature (20°C), the dramatic temperature change caused the existing elastomer lining to crack and, as a result, the tanks started leaking.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4361

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-3.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 4361 offers excellent chemical resistance and flexibility to ensure integrity to protect substrates subject to flexing and movement. Belzona 4361 was used to line two tanks in October 2015 and the client requested another 2 tanks to be coated in 2016.
