The Bina Refinery is located in the Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh state and owned and operated by Bharat Oman Refineries Limited (BORL). During construction of the reservoir the team noticed the water in Reservoir #1 was declining and subsequent investigations revealed that there were several leaks. In order to repair the leaks the team needed a waterproofing solution that could be applied to the positive side that would not hold up construction.
The team used Kryton’ s Krystol T1 and T2 Waterproofing System to repair the leaks from the positive side. The joints were treated with Krystol T1, Krystol Bari-Cote and Krystol Plug and the entire reservoir received a coating of the Krystol T1 & T2 surface-applied waterproofing system. The solution saved the owners time and labour costs. The water levels were tested after refilling and measurements were taken for three days to ensure there was no further water leakage. There was none and the project was a success. The refinery currently outputs six million metric tons per year.
Krystol T1 is a surface applied crystalline slurry treatment that transforms new or existing concrete into a permanent waterproofing barrier.
Krystol Bari-Cote is a high-strength crystalline concrete waterproofing top coat used to resurface and repair concrete or masonry.
As part of the Krystol Leak Repair System, Krystol Plug is a rapid-setting hydraulic cement product that when mixed with water is used to stop flowing water and repair leaking cracks, holes and joints in concrete.
