Machinery, equipment, structures and buildings within biomass plants face many maintenance challenges. These include, therefore, chemical attack, abrasion and mechanical damage.

As a result, Belzona solutions present excellent alternatives to traditional repair methods. Firstly, they can be used safely in explosive atmospheres and confined spaces. Also, they are quick to apply and cure, avoiding disruption to day-to-day operations. Therefore, they eliminate the need for special equipment and hot work. As a result, they offer long-lasting performance, extending maintenance-free periods.

Belzona has demonstrated reliability and success in the repair and maintenance of biomass plant installations in areas including, but not limited to:

  • Anaerobic digesters and sludge tanks
  • Pumps and pipes
  • Discharge chutes, hoppers and screw conveyors
  • Shafts and housings
  • Conveyor belts
  • Floors and loading areas
  • Ceilings
  • Walls

ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS AND SLUDGE TANKS

Typical problems: corrosion in GFS (glass-lined steel plate) or concrete tanks in the liquid and/or gas phase. Thickness reduction and perforations in the walls.

Soluciones Posibles: primeramente, reparación mediante soldadura de placas en frío o parches con materiales en pasta de la serie 1000 de Belzona. Finalmente, Revestimiento interno con recubrimiento de las series 1000 y 5000 de Belzona para protección contra la corrosión.

PUMPS AND PIPES

Typical problems: erosion-corrosion and chemical attack due to biomass management.

Possible Solutions: Firstly, Belzona 1000 series 100% solids paste and liquid materials. Metal rebuilding and corrosion protection for pipes and tubes.

ROOFS

Typical problems: deterioration due to weathering and/or damage to roofs and roof components: joints, seams, edges, glazing sections. Also gutters, flashings, skylights, parapets and copings. Finally, pipes and pipe supports. Damage is usually caused by weather and freeze-thaw cycles. In turn, failure of roofing materials, substrate movement or impacts.

Possible Solutions: Belzona 3000 Series liquid membranes for weatherproofing, waterproofing, repair and protection of any type of roof and all its components.

DISCHARGE CHUTES, HOPPERS, AUGER CONVEYORS

Typical problems: loss of material due to abrasion that occurs during the transfer and processing of hard materials.

Typical problems: loss of material due to abrasion that occurs during the transfer and processing of hard materials.

FLOORS AND LOADING AREAS

Typical problems: damage to concrete floors and structures due to weather fluctuations, chemical attack or impact, slippery traffic areas or failure of expansion joints.

Possible Solutions: Primarily Belzona 1000, 2000, 4000 and 5000 series paste and liquid materials for heavy duty slip resistant flooring applications, safety signage, concrete restoration and levelling, expansion joint repairs, repair and protection of containment basins.

BIOMASS PLANTS WALLS

Typical problems: deterioration of concrete and masonry, and failure of construction joints due to erosion, corrosion, chemical attack, impact and structural movement.

Soluciones Posibles: en primer lugar, materiales en pasta y líquidos de las series 2000, 4000 y 5000 de Belzona para impermeabilización, reconstrucción de hormigón y mampostería, y protección de paredes exteriores e interiores. Además, para la reparación, el reemplazo o la instalación de juntas de construcción.

SHAFTS AND CASINGS IN BIOMASS PLANTS

Typical problems: loss of metal due to wear or mechanical damage.

Possible solutions: firstly, Belzona 1000 series paste materials for injection moulding or rebuilding and machining to exact original dimensions.

CONVEYOR BELTS IN BIOMASS PLANTS

Typical problems: tears, rips and damage to rubber slats and conveyor belts.

Possible Solutions: Primarily Belzona 2000 series elastomers for on-site repair, welding and patching of damaged conveyor belts.

FIRE SPRINKLER TANKS

Typical problems: external and internal corrosion, reduction of thickness and perforations in the walls of water storage tanks.

Soluciones Posibles: en primer lugar, reparación mediante soldadura de placas en frío o parches con materiales en pasta de la serie 1000 de Belzona. Además, revestimiento interno con recubrimientos de la serie 1000 y 5000 de Belzona para protección contra la corrosión.
