Belzona Keeps Metal Churning



General Industry (GIND)


Áreas Know-How:

Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)


Cliente / ubicación:

Metals Plant, North Carolina, USA


Fecha de aplicación:

February, 2008


Situación de aplicación:

Magnetic Cylinder, called a Stirring Jacket, used to mix molten Titanium.



Electrical shorts in the coil wrapped around the cylinder caused a loss of current responsible for producing the magnetic field used to stir the molten titanium.



Belzona® 2221 (MP-Fluid Elastomer)



Stainless Steel


Método de aplicación:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-1. Approximately one mile of #6 wire which supplied the current was removed. After surface preparation, one coat of Belzona® 2221 was applied, the coil was then re-wrapped, and a further coat of Belzona® 2221 was applied over the coil.


Hechos Belzona:

The metals plant was not able to isolate the electrical short. It was more cost effective to insulate the jacket rather than to replace the coil. This job was done two years ago and remains in service. The plant was extremely happy to begin production again in such a timely manner.
