Belzona® Stops Leaks At A Public Housing Authority

 
 

Industry:

Local Authorities & Municipalities (LOMU)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Housing Authority, New York, USA

 
 

Application Date:

March 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

Condensate overflow tanks

 
 

Problem:

The condensate tank had moderate to severe corrosion in various spots with 11 existing leaks. This led to the room being regularly flooded.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)

Belzona 1212 

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out according to a modified version of Belzona system leaaflet TCC-1. On the day of repair, the tank was drained prior to Belzonas arrival. Belzona 9341 reinforcement tape was used in conjunction with Belzona 1212 and Belzona 1111 to add mechanical strength and bridge gaps over larger holes. The tank was back in service by the end of the day. 

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The client had attempted to fix the leaks using welded patches in the past, but the repairs did not hold up. It would have cost in excess of $100,000 to replace the tank. Whereas, the Belzona solution costed significantly less.
