Fecha de aplicación:

March 2004


Situación de aplicación:

Crankshaft was scored due to debris and low oil levels in the sump.



With one of two spray dry pumps down, plant production was reduced by half.



Belzona® 1131 (Bearing Metal)





Método de aplicación:

Application carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet MPT-9. Belzona® 1131 was hand applied to the scored journal and subsequently hand finished with fine emery.


Hechos Belzona:

New crankshaft cost: $55,000 and that was the good news. Bad news: weeks to obtain. Not a recommended application on high speed cranks but highly successful in this application. Since startup, sump was run dry of oil twice with no damage to the Belzona® 1131.
