Atlantic Hardchrome engineered a solution for an obsolete military valve, analyzing and enhancing original designs to correct unrecorded fitment issues. Switching from casting to solid forged material CNC machining, we improved the component's strength and production reliability. The project, entirely executed in-house, included manufacturing, NDT testing, and custom pressure testing, resulting in four robust valve assemblies ready for deployment.
We successfully refurbished a vital 32-foot, 32,000-pound water screen for the energy sector, a project critical due to its status as the customer's only spare. Our comprehensive in-house process included disassembly, cleaning, sandblasting, recoating, and intricate repairs like hard chrome surfacing and precise grinding. We expedited the manufacturing of new components, reassembled the screen, and readied it for reinstallation, significantly reducing the typical repair timeframe by delivering within just four months.
In the industrial, manufacturing, and technology sector, we restored a critical 816HP gearbox. Our comprehensive in-house inspection, including advanced NDT techniques, uncovered housing cracks that otherwise would have gone undetected. We repaired damaged bearing and seal surfaces with hard chrome, ensuring durability superior to traditional welding methods. Custom solutions for housing cracks and damaged output shaft threads were devised and implemented, complemented by new in-house machined bearing covers. The gearbox was meticulously reassembled, passing all inspections and pre-load tests, culminating in a swift turnaround crucial for our customer's operations.
For a client in the forestry industry, we took on the challenge of a crankshaft deemed irreparable due to extensive stress cracking. By remanufacturing a new crankshaft from forged material and enhancing it with hard chrome plating, we not only met but exceeded OEM performance, leading to increased wear resistance and longevity. The result was a high-quality, balanced crankshaft that reduced the customer's downtime and costs, with the added benefit of a faster production time than the original manufacturers.
Atlantic Hardchrome was tasked with not only repairing a steam reciprocating pump but also enhancing its performance for a client in the energy and utilities industry. After a thorough inspection, our team implemented approved improvements, including the in-house remanufacturing of worn components. We engineered redesigned pistons and cylinder sleeves for extended life, and standardized rods with hard chrome plating for increased wear resistance. Following a meticulous reassembly, the revamped pump demonstrated such improved reliability and performance that the client entrusted us with upgrading their entire fleet of pumps and maintaining their compressor shaft program.
