Belzona® Refurbishes Split Case Pump

 
 

Industry:

Food & Drink (FOOD)

 
 

Application:

Centrifugal Pumps (CEP)

 
 

Customer Location:

Distillery, Glasgow, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

May 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

The model of split case pump was no longer produced so spares were in short supply.

 
 

Problem:

Pump had been experiencing erosion/corrosion. Damage had occurred to the existing coating & some of the underlying steel substrate had been eroded away. If another model of pump were to be installed in this instance the surrounding pipework would have to be modified.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

Belzona 1341 (Supermetalglide)

 

Substrate:

Mild steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets CEP-1 and CEP-3. The damaged areas around the wear rings were rebuilt with Belzona 1111 before the casing was coated with two coats of Belzona 1341.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Using this method the pump was repaired/protected & ready for service without the need for any modifications of the pipework associated with it. Due to the low film thickness of Belzona 1341, no major changes to the pump head are expected.
