Application Situation
Boiler inside engine room of dredger.
Application Method
The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-12. The boiler was set into place using jacking bolts, and dams were built around each of the individual bolts. Belzona 7111 was then poured into the prepared areas using a small section of steel as a runway due to the difficult access. The thickness of the pour was just over 2 inches, so a solidifier reduction was used.
Belzona Facts
The Belzona 7111 resin chocks were quickly and effectively installed and will ensure a secure, vibration free location for the boiler.
