Belzona® Stops Leaks And Protects Parked Cars

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)

 
 

Customer Location:

Houston, TX, USA

 
 

Application Date:

December 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Cooling tower drain lines.

 
 

Problem:

Cooling tower line drains were leaking and causing damage to the paint of vehicles parked below. Aesthetics were important to the client. Not only did they need the leak stopped, they also needed a solution that would not be an eye-sore to their tenants.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1161 (Super UW-Metal)

Belzona 5111 (Ceramic Cladding)

 

Substrate:

Carbon Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet VPF-15. 

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Belzona application was carried out in half a day and the customer was in service during the repair. Alternative methods would have taken the cooling tower offline for 2-3 days, leaving tenants uncomfortable and the cost much more expensive.
