Gearbox project for a client from Belgium

Gearbox project for a client from Belgium

If a gearbox malfunction occurs, this can have a major impact on the business operations of our clients.

Although we are always ready to help our customers with such problems, some of our customers would rather prevent this and therefore opt to have a revision preventively carried out on the gearbox.

This was also the case with a Belgian customer from the chemical sector. Last summer the client approached us with the request to preventively carry out a overhaul on a gearbox of the brand Kestermann. Our sales team made an offer for a standard overhaul.

The standard overhaul consists of:
- Overall disassembly and cleaning of all parts
- Inspecting and reporting the gearbox
- Reviewing the inspection report together with the client
- Assembly and testing of the gearbox

After we received approval from the client, the gearbox was transported to our location in Oud-Beijerland. We started by inspecting the cabinet, interior and hydraulics of the gearbox. Our inspection showed that more had to be done than a standard overhaul.

For example, the pipework had to be replaced externally and the top cover of the cupboard housing needed to be replaced. Our sales department went through the inspection report together with the client and made a new quotation for the additional work that emerged from the inspection.

After approval from the customer, our engineers proceeded with the overhaul of the gearbox. After the gearbox had undergone a complete overhaul, we conducted a 4-hour (no-load) test run. This test run went well and after a final quality check the gearbox went back to transport to the customer.

Pictures from the project are included below. If you are interesed in our services, contact our sales department today.
