Repair/Overhaul Process


1. Dismantle & Assessment 

Components are dismantled and inspected.

Wearing parts are precisely measured and recorded.

Failed components are inspected and assessed for possible cause. When necessary, metallurgical laboratories may be used to establish causes. 

The results of the above procedures are then used to develop an overhaul strategy.

 

2. Quoting & Procurement

All the data is entered into our job management software and an accurate quotation is quickly produced and dispatched to the customer for approval. 

On acceptance of the quote, the overhaul process can begin with parts selection and procurement taking place.

Our extensive parts inventory ensures fast turnaround and reduced reliance on secondary suppliers.

 

3. Lapping & Grinding 

All lapping and grinding is completed in-house to maintain quality standards.

Lapping room tables are audited regularly to maintain accuracy.

Both flat and spherical components are catered for.

All lapped components are ultrasonically cleaned to remove any residue.

 

4. Assembly

All components are reassembled by skilled technicians with years of experience.

All critical dimensions are counter checked, with measuring equipment that is audited monthly. 

Manufactures specifications, assembly dimensions, and tensioning requirements are adhered to and recorded for quality assurance and future reference. 

 

5. Testing 

All hydraulic components are subject to exhaustive and authentic function tests using our 300 hp. test bench, which is the largest in Tasmania. 

Pumps are tested at full displacement, design pressures and speeds. All tests are recorded and analysed. Special care is taken to protect components when testing. Oil is full flow filtered to 10 microns. 

 

6. Sealing & Packaging

On completion of testing, all ports are sealed preventing ingress of contaminants and loss of oil during transport and storage. All components are packed on appropriate skids.

Components are painted and machined-faces-coated to prevent corrosion.
