Keeping vibrations at bay
Published: 17 December, 2015
At a port operator in the UK, an extremely durable chocking system was required to ensure a new boiler would remain secure and protected, even when subjected to aggressive vibration activity.
Following a Belzona inspection, the operator reportedly decided to chock the boiler into place using Belzona 7111 (Marine Grade). Belzona says this two-component material is specially designed for use as a chocking or grouting compound to endure the physical and thermal shock common to marine environments. DNV GL approved and certified by major classification bodies including Lloyd’s Register Marine and the American Bureau of Shipping, Belzona 7111 was said to be the ideal solution to withstand the damaging vibrations on the dredger.
The simple pouring method enabled the application to be carried out with minimal downtime.
