Need Flange Face Repair?
Problem: Damaged flange faces increase risk of leaks, shutdown, lost productivity, environmental contamination
Corrosion and erosion damage hidden between pipe flange faces will weaken the gasket seal and increase your risk of pipe failure. The flange conceals deterioration and frequently goes unchecked until a leak occurs. This situation can lead to costly downtime, product loss, environmental cleanup, and potential safety hazards.
To make matters worse, conventional flange repair methods typically involve time consuming shutdown for hazardous cut and weld replacement.
Solution: Quick and durable rebuild with Belzona flange face repair kit
Using Belzona flange face forming materials, Banks Industrial Group can quickly and cost-effectively restore damaged flange faces in situ without hot work or machining. Rapid application and cold curing capability reduces downtime and disruption to your operation. Additionally, you can use our flange forming technology to proactively prevent galvanic corrosion by isolating dissimilar metals.
