Plastic Steel® Putty (A)
These water box channels would receive extreme corrosive wear from processing salt water. The wear was so sever that the channel boxes required immediate replacement. Due to equipment age, replacement parts were no longer available.
Complete repair areas were sandblasted to a SSPC-SP5 white metal finish. Surfaces were chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. Titanium was applied up to 65 mils over original specification or dimension. Following a 6 hour cure of Titanium Putty, the channel was machined back to within original specifications or dimension. Minor imperfections were repaired using Titanium Putty, then re-machined following a 4 hour cure.
