Mechanical Rotating Solutions repair and commission Southern Cross booster pumps

After grit blasting, the application areas around the volute were masked for the application of Belzona 1111 Super Metal, an epoxy paste grade composite for metal repair. This was used to reconstruct the areas damaged by corrosion, rebuilding the original surface profile. This solvent-free composite provides excellent corrosion resistance and ensures the substrate is protected when it comes into contact with an abrasive material. Used in conjunction with a product like Belzona 1341 Supermetalglide, with its unique combination of properties such as self-levelling application as well as hydrophobicity and hydraulic smoothness, it combines to offer the perfect solution for lining the hydraulic passages of pumps”.
