The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-14.
Application of Belzona® 1321 on top of the Belzona® 1812 gave smoother finish, which prevented the damp coal sticking to the screw surfaces. Local repairs to high wear areas were carried out annually to maintain the screw protection until new plant was installed in 2012.
