Power (POWR)

 
 

Application:

Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)

 
 

Customer Location:

Korea / Indonesia

 
 

Application Date:

July 2017

 
 

Application Situation:

A refurbishment to Cilacap Refinery involved the manufacture and installation of several pieces of equipment. Specification had called for a ceramic epoxy able to withstand high temperatures in which Belzona 1391T was best suited.

 
 

Problem:

Rather than retrospectively maintain broken equipment causing downtime and loss of production, the client decided the best option was to proactively maintain by applying a lining to protect the internal of the flare stack.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1391T

 

Substrate:

Carbon Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Following surface preparation which met the requirements of the Belzona IFU, Belzona 1391T was applied by hand in accordance with TCC-5.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 1391T was applied to stop corrosion from occurring the the internal of the flare stack in a prone area. The ceramic fillers in the product help to ensure the wear rate from the erosive forces is kept to a minimum. Belzona 1391T has a long overcoating window which cut down the cost and time of having to blast between the first and second coat.
