Belzona® Solves Misalignment On Quarry Truck Scales

 
 

Industry:

Mining and Quarrying (MINQ)

 
 

Application:

Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)

 
 

Customer Location:

Quarry, Croatia

 
 

Application Date:

May 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

Misalgnment of matal approach plate to truck scales. 

 
 

Problem:

Concrete surface under the metal plate on the approach to the truck scale was badly damaged due to misalignment of mating faces. Truck scale must be in operation during the two shifts per day, six days per week operation of the quarry so fast repair procedure required.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade)

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Metal and concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-9. After installation of the new metal plate, the edges of the mating faces were sealed with Belzona 1111 to prevent leaking of Belzona 5811 which was injected through previously drilled holes.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The only real alternative was to remove old concrete and build another construction. Customer did that first time, but it didn't solve the problem, because the alignment of mating faces was still inaccurate. The application was done in one shift, a day before weekend and national holiday and hence there was just one shift of downtime. Customer had some other offers but value for money was best with Belzona.
