The part was rebuilt both internally and externally with flange faces. We applied Belzona 1813, an abrasion resistant reinforcement for surfaces operating at elevated temperatures. It was reinforced with the SuperWrap II system and finally the Belzona 5892 corrosion resistant outer coating was applied. Efficiency and service life were increased.
Application of a protective coating for a new storage tank.
The aim of the intervention is to isolate the metallic substrate from the contained solution in order to protect it from corrosion, thus extending the useful life of the equipment. It must withstand continuous immersion in high temperature solutions and be certified for drinking water at these temperatures. Belzona 5892 was applied.
Yacht Flange Regeneration
Regeneration of the faces of two flanges for two exhaust pipes of this spectacular yacht.
The aim of the intervention was to regenerate the flange seals using moulding techniques. By applying Belzona 1511 (due to the high temperatures in immersion conditions) and then placing the moulds treated with Belzona 9411 separating agent, the thickness dimensions suitable for the stability, watertightness and mechanical resistance of the structure are recovered.
Efficacy Treatment Hopper Cone
These goods suffer from different modes of erosion, corrosion and chemical attack in the papermaking process, which subject the machinery to extremely hostile environments.
We repair the inner crack with Belzona 1111 and coat with Belzona 1321, a 2-part ceramic filled epoxy coating, to ensure that this equipment always meets its production targets with the highest possible performance.
Yacht Tank Protection Regeneration
The aim of the application was to protect the waste water tank of this yacht, as it was showing general corrosion with pitting. The previous protection system had proved insufficient.
Reconstruction of the damaged area was carried out with Belzona 1111, before being coated with two coats of Belzona 5811, a system to provide chemical and corrosion resistance.
Regeneration Protection Horns
The stern tube horns on this yacht were badly corroded with pitting. Their previous corrosion protection system proved to be insufficient and they were only in service for approximately 1 year and 3 months.
The project requirements were to fill and protect against the existing corrosion and erosion. Reconstruction of the damaged area was carried out with Belzona 1311, before coating with Belzona 1321 to provide corrosion and erosion resistance.
Mill Roll Repair
Filling the rollers of a vertical mill for a cement plant. These had lost size due to friction and erosive wear between the plates and the base where the plates are placed. We used Belzona 1111 to perfectly repair the roller in situ, restoring the worn surface to its original dimensions, with minimal downtime and cost.
Alternatives would have been difficult to apply due to the huge size of the roller and would have required much more time and money. Belzona, once again, solves both problems.
Floor Screed Protection
Protection of a newly constructed floor slab. The work consisted of protecting a 1700 m2 concrete floor, including kerbs and mechanical equipment supports.
The main problem was that the area had spillage of caustic products, mainly Na OH (Sodium Hydroxide) and K OH (Potassium Hydroxide). At the same time, temperatures of between 55 and 80ºC are reached. For these reasons our product Belzona 5892. was chosen.
Yacht Cold Welding
The objective was to seal a borehole in a difficult to access area. Belzona 1212 allows us to perform a quick and agile intervention (in a few hours).
We avoid the risk of sparks, hot work and heat treatments after traditional welding, which can damage both the structure and the paintwork.
WWTP Pipe Protection
Reconstruction and internal coating of sludge circulation pipes with corrosion and presence of pittings.
The requested finish had to have high chemical resistance, suitable for continuous immersion in wastewater. To rebuild and repair the metal surface we used Belzona 1111 and Belzona 4111, with subsequent coating of Belzona 5811.
Heat Exchanger Cover
Restoration project of a complete heat exchanger. We began by restoring the cover of the unit, which was in a very poor state of repair.
After cleaning, we recovered the thickness of the surface with Belzona 1111, and then coated it with Belzona 1391T.
Reconstruction of the distribution head
We went on to rebuild the distribution head. This was in very poor condition, with holes in the surface and had lost a lot of thickness.
After cleaning and preparing the part, we rebuilt the separation plate between the fluid inlet and outlet with Belzona 1111, and then coated it with Belzona 1391T, with incredible results.
Heat Exchanger Reconstruction
We finished the project by rebuilding the heat exchanger. The copper pipes were previously protected with rubber plugs to prevent the entry of blast media. We then replaced them with cork plugs to start the screed with Belzona 1111.
After sanding, we coated with Belzona 1391T. Finally, the holes are cleaned of any possible debris with a straight grinder.
Submersible Pump Recovery
Reconstruction of eleven parts that make up a submersible pump, with seawater collection for equipment cooling.
The pump was screeded with Belzona 1111 and then coated with Belzona 1341 which, through the use of hydrophobic technology, helps to repel process fluids and reduce turbulent flow.
Condenser Tank Repair
The objective was to seal, reinforce and protect a specific area on the outside of a condensate tank, having the same water at 90-100ºC.
For sealing, reinforcement, filling and protection we used Belzona 1111. For coating we use Belzona 5892, specifically designed for the protection of surfaces subject to immersion in hot aqueous solutions (up to 95ºC); resisting not only water and brine but also a wide range of chemicals.
Tank Base Repair
Tank base protection system against acid chemical attack. We condition the entire area to be coated with Belzona 4911 surface conditioner. We then use Belzona 4131 epoxy mortar.
Finally we prepare Belzona 4311, a system that is applied continuously, thus avoiding discontinuities where the chemical agent can advance.

Active Leak Seal
An electrical transformer suffered from an active oil leak located in one of its fins due to excess welding stress. This leak entailed the problem of considering the high cost of replacement, the cost of draining the oil from the equipment, together with the unwanted downtime and oil contamination that was occurring in the meantime.
Sealing and Filter Surround Protection
The objective of the repair was to seal/protect two areas of pores in the envelope of a filter. Not only were the pores found sealed, but a complete sealing was carried out in a safety zone.
Walls were reinforced in areas that seemed weaker in terms of thickness and had forceful pitting with Belzona 1161, including the application of a reinforcing sheet.
Spectacular result of the rehabilitation of a cooler for a petrochemical plant. We treated a serious problem of thickness loss with pitting of the metal plate due to galvanic corrosion.
With Belzona 1111 we recover thickness and with our Belzona 1321 ceramic layer coating we protect the equipment, extending its useful life thanks to this maximum resistance coating.
Repair of non-active leaky pores for an energy producing company. After preparing the surface, we proceed to plug the first leak with Belzona 9611. Once plugged, we apply our Belzona 1212 product.
For the repair of the second leak, and once the surface was prepared, we went on to repair the pore by cold welding a metal sheet with Belzona 1111.
Fuel Tank Protection
We found that the fuel tank was corroded, with pitting in certain areas of the base of the tank. It was necessary to restore and subsequently protect the equipment to prevent premature degeneration.
Reconstruction of the damaged area was carried out with Belzona 1111, before being coated with the Belzona 5811 system, which provides chemical resistance and corrosion protection. We covered the entire area with two coats of Belzona 5811, with excellent results.
