PIV gearbox repair for chemical plant in Belgium

We received a PIV brand gearbox from a chemical plant in Belgium. An extensive inspection was carried out in our workshop in Oud-Beijerland to assess the condition of the gearbox.

Based on the inspection, a revision proposal was made by the sales department and this was discussed with the customer. He agreed and the revision work could therefore start.

During the overhaul, among other things, the cupboard housing was scraped, sanded and preserved inside and out. The input shaft had heavily broken in at the oil seal ring, we have repaired this by means of laser cladding.

Due to heavy pitting, the pinion shaft in the 3rd and 4th stage was also replaced. The bearings, bearing covers and adjustment shims were also replaced during the overhaul.

A 4-hour unloaded test run from our quality control department showed that the gearbox was ready to be used again. The gearbox therefore went back to transport to the customer, where it is now running at full speed again in the chemical plant.

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