Project Description – Furnace Corner Support Beam Repair
Application - Repair the concrete base due to erosion from temperature fluctuations and environmental changes.
Industry - Mining
Contractor - Creative Maintenance Solutions LLC's Danny Hunter and crew
Problem - The corner furnace support beam for the conveyor system above the furnace has worn away and needs to be structurally repaired. This repair has to be completed in between shifts and back in to service in less than 24 hours.
Solution - Cleaned and mechanically prepared the substrate for rebuilding. Condition the concrete by brushing on Belzona 4981 high temperature conditioner. Rebuild the base with Belzona 4181 epoxy, due to the high temperatures at the work site, the epoxy was kept in a cool trailer until mixing and applying. The rebuild material was applied with a trowel.
