RESPONSIVE, EXPERT SUPPORT FOR BEARING REPAIRS

Repair services to support outages and routine bearing refurbishment.

DECADES OF EXPERTISE:

Our experience covers every type of bearing or assembly and nearly all bearing parts can be repaired. The general except is thin shell bearing due to distortion during the repair process. As whitemetal bearings are a sacrificial parts, their “failure” is part of the function to protect the more valuable rotating elements of a machine. The same casting processes, NDT and dimensional criteria are applied to repaired and new bearings. A detailed inwards inspection will determine if any parts are not suitable for repair before work commences

EMERGENCY REPAIR SUPPORT

Overhauls and unscheduled outages of rotating equipment can be very costly for the user. We support clients with very short turn around and often combined the repair with re-engineering and supplying spares.
