Application Situation
Rod Mill trunion bearing housing had significant wear and insufficient downtime for traditional weld/machining repair.
Application Method
Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet MPT-2. Housing was heated with torch to sweat out oils. The substrate was then blasted to a 2-3 mil profile. Application of the Belzona® 1311 followed to rebuild housing back to OEM specification.
Belzona Facts
Welding and Machining would have taken 7-10 days and the cost was $40-60k not including downtime of the mill. Belzona application took 8 hours start to finish and at a significantly lower cost.
