Application Method:

Application carried out in accordance to a modified version of TCC-05. Framework was grit-blasted to NACE 2 Standard. One coat of Belzona 5811 and two coats Belzona 5111 were applied. Some sections of the framework were inaccessible for coating and -in lieu- the access point was sealed with Belzona 3111. Piping system was prepared using power tools. One coat of Belzona 3921 and two coats of Belzona 5111 were applied.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Replacing cooling tower framework and piping would require the customer to shutdown for at least a week which they could not afford. Previous work at the plant had cemented Belzona's reputation and there was no hesitation to get this project. Savings were measured as not losing one week's production. They were also convinced that Belzona coating system will perform excellently for many years.
