PROJECT No. 105 – REPAIR ON THE CRACK IN CYLINDER SULZER RTA

  Industry  Marine

   Problem   Crack in the five (5) lids

  Country    Italy, Spain

  Project Goal

      Repair works on the machine lids

 

 

   Status   Completed

All lids were multiple times glued and repaired by a workshop that probably did not have strong soldering skills. Also, a large amount of sulfur  was found in all lids indicating poor fuel quality. The cooling corridors and the 5 (five) lids were blocked and were found in poor condition.

 

Our technician cleaned all five (5) lids with the appropriate chemicals however he was able to  repair only  four (4) of them because the fifth (5) was found in very poor condition and showed a large, perforating  crack.

 

The actions taken for the repair were as follows:

 

Cleaning with appropriate chemicals.

Pulley cleaning and grinding.

Milling, scrubbing, and crack cleaning.

Placement of resins and carbon fibers.

Placement of high temperature and flame-resistant epoxy resin.
