Oil & Gas (OILG)



Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)


Customer Location:

Fertiliser plant, Egypt


Application Date:



Application Situation:

Belzona saved millions of loss production preventing an unplanned shut down.



A Natural gas active leak has developed at a fertiliser plant. As a result, their safety department was about to shut down the plant to repair this dangerous leakage.



Belzona 9611

Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)





Application Method:

They started by applying Belzona 9611 with a metal clamp. The application was carried out by 7 technicians at the same time due to the limited curing time. They then closed the clamp and made sure that the leakage stopped. After that, Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) was applied to the whole area. The application duration was one working day and they inspected the repair using a gas detector device.


Belzona Facts:

The only alternative to the Belzona solution would have been to shut down the plant, as this vessel was reducing gas pressure for the whole plant. Therefore they couldn’t repair it with conventional welding.
