Tasked with the revitalization of an 816HP gearbox, Atlantic Hardchrome applied its full spectrum of diagnostic and restorative skills to this high-stakes project. The process unfolded as follows:
- Comprehensive inspection and precise failure analysis culminating in a series of meticulous repairs.
- Utilization of our in-house Non-Destructive Testing to uncover housing cracks, ensuring no fault went undetected.
- Implementation of hard chrome repairs on bearing and seal surfaces, refined to their original dimensions for enhanced durability and performance.
- Creation and approval of bespoke solutions for housing cracks and damaged output shaft threads, reinforcing the gearbox's integrity.
- Replacement of compromised bearing covers with new, precisely machined counterparts from our own facility.
- Detailed cleaning and inspection of the gearbox's lubrication system to certify optimal functionality upon reassembly.
- Reassembly of the gearbox, incorporating all necessary pre-loads, paving the way for efficient installation and commissioning.
- Execution of the entire repair process at a pace that significantly reduced anticipated downtime, restoring the gearbox to operational status within an impressive four-week timeframe.
Through this project, Atlantic Hardchrome not only restored a critical component but also reinforced our client's operational capacity with swift and solid repair workmanship.
