Problem: Previously the pump only lasted two years in service before requiring major overhaul. Originally coated in 2010 with Belzona, after six years of uninterrupted service, the customer opened the pump for mechanical maintenance. Belzona coating was found to be in excellent condition but it was decided to refresh the Belzona protection to prepare the pump for more years of service in sludge.
