Our specifically developed unique welding procedure is proven to breathe new life into many marine items from Cylinder Heads, Turbocharger Casings, Pistons, Liners and Exhaust Housings to name a few. These items without our expertise, would be removed from service and the customer would have no alternative but to replace with new and expensive parts. All components are repaired by using our welding technique approved by LLOYDS REGISTER and we are proud to offer classification certificates from all the major classification societies including Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd and American Bureau of Ship    

Unique Defect Sheets and Photos

Final Testing: A full test procedure is carried out to SNT-TC-1A to establish a 100% repair has been achieved. The item can then be fully machined complying with the manufacturers tolerances, spare parts fitted if necessary ie Valve Guides, Seats etc, Final Pressure Test, Shot Blasting, Cleaning and Final Inspection.
