BELZONA RESTORES ACID FLOW BY REFURBISHING CONCRETE CHANNEL
Industry: Power (POWR)
Application: TCC-Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)
Customer Location: Coal-fired power station - Scotland
Application Date: May 2001
Problem: The concrete channel was deteriorated from the acid. A previously applied bituminous screed was failing which caused peaks and troughs in the channel.
- The surface is being prepared
- The failed screed can be seen prior to its removal
- Belzona® 4181 being applied
- The channel back in service
A channel used to contain and transport sulfuric acid.
The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-15.
The Belzona® 4181 leveled out all the peaks and troughs and it offers excellent impact resistance should any of the steel channel plates be dislocated and dropped during maintenance. Belzona® 4181 was the best solution because the channel is frequently exposed to sulfuric acid above ambient temperatures.
