051- Eurotex International Ltd make full use of the CMM facility

During a Major Overhaul of a Ruston 12RK270 engine, our customer required a full dimension inspection and condition report to ascertain the reuse over the next 15000 running hours between Major Overhauls of the piston assemblies.

The CMM machine presented a comprehensive and detailed report of dimensions, wear areas, variations and deterioration of the existing equipment and confirmed the unsuitability for reuse.

The accuracy and presentation of the report provided full and detailed data for the customer to utilise new equipment in the rebuild of the engine.

050 – Paxman Ventura Crankcase restored to ‘New Life’

A crankcase that was originally manufactured in 1964 was returned to Eurotex for complete rehabilitation to extend its life expectancy by an anticipated 25 years.

The unit, the oldest returned for rehabilitation, was in a very dilapidated condition reflecting its 48th anniversary and required extensive rework including:

  • Extensive corrosion requiring restructuring by welding
  • Replacement of all oil transfer pipes
  • Extensive distortion to the sump rail
  • Several areas cracked throughout the crankcase
  • Severe fretting to the ‘E’ bores requiring replacement
  • Re welding and machining of top deck liner recesses

The entire process of rehabilitation was completed by the Eurotex Team of specialist welders, machinists and engineers and successfully bought back to ‘as new’ condition over a 6 month period and was certified after full dimension inspection and pressure testing that was witnessed and approved by Lloyd’s.

The performance represents another resounding achievement by Eurotex International Ltd in bringing back to service a unit to an improved condition at the fraction of the cost price of a new unit to the complete satisfaction of our customer.
