BELZONA REFURBISHES SPLIT CASE PUMP
Industry: Food & Drink (FOOD)
Application: CEP-Centrifugal Pumps (CEP)
Substrate: Mild steel
Customer Location: Distillery, Glasgow, Scotland
Application Date: May 2016
Belzona 1111 (Super Metal)
Belzona 1341 (Supermetalglide)
Problem: Pump had been experiencing erosion/corrosion. Damage had occurred to the existing coating & some of the underlying steel substrate had been eroded away. If another model of pump were to be installed in this instance the surrounding pipework would have to be modified.
- Pump casing before
- Damage before
- Casing after application of Belzona 1341
- Completed application
The model of split case pump was no longer produced so spares were in short supply.
The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets CEP-1 and CEP-3. The damaged areas around the wear rings were rebuilt with Belzona 1111 before the casing was coated with two coats of Belzona 1341.
Using this method the pump was repaired/protected & ready for service without the need for any modifications of the pipework associated with it. Due to the low film thickness of Belzona 1341, no major changes to the pump head are expected.
