Customer Location:

Motor Manufacturer - Sunderland UK


Application Date:

July 2017


Application Situation:

Customer had a 25 year old lime holding tank



The tank was suffering from corrosion problems around the outer lower sections of the tank. In addition to this, there was also corrosion to the base of the smaller inner tank.



Belzona 1121 (Super XL Metal)

Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade)



Carbon Steel


Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona System Leaflet TCC-5. Corrosion along the base was removed via grit blasting then plates where bonded in place to reinforce the steel work. Belzona 5811 was then applied to protect against further corrosion.


Belzona Facts:

The plant had a 2 week summer shutdown in which the reapirs needed to be completed. To replace the tanks was expensive and the lead time would exceed this 2 week period. Belzona was more cost-effective and completed within 5 days.
