Power (POWR)

Cliente / ubicación:

Geothermal Plant in the Philippines.

 
 

Fecha de aplicación:

August 2002

 
 

Situación de aplicación:

Anchor casing

 
 

Problema:

This anchor casing was badly in need of repair. Plant engineers did not want to shut down the equipment, leaving Belzona’s heat-activated prod-ucts as the only viable option.

 
 

Productos:

Belzona® 1251 (HA-Metal)
Belzona® 5851 (HA-Barrier)

 

Substrato:

Metal

 
 

Método de aplicación:

Manual surface preparation was used. Next, a new metal jacket was placed over the heavily pitted areas and bonded in place with Belzona ® 1251. After the material began to cure, Belzona® 5851 was used to coat the entire area for extra protection.

 
 

Hechos Belzona:

Belzona® 1251 and Belzona® 5851 are heat activated, and make ideal repair solutions when minimizing downtime is the main priority since they can be applied while the equipment is in service. These products begin to cure when exposed to temperatures of 70°C or higher.
