Hot liquor tanks of a brewery, hot liquor is the hot water used to mash the ingredients to make beer.

Application Method:

The previous liner was removed by grit blasting, this step took 3 days. Once the pit holes under the liner had been repaired, two coats of Belzona 5892 were applied to the first two hot liquor tanks using Belzona Know How System Leaflet TCC-5. Belzona 5892 was cured with hot water and washed down twice.


Belzona Facts:

Five months after the application, engineers from the brewery inspected the tank and were so impressed they have commissioned the coating of the other four tanks.
