SECTION REPLACEMENT

Reynolds-French is often confronted with repair problems never before encountered. Experience has shown that the more conventional form of repair are not always sufficient enough to assure long lasting equipment life and performance.

Among the most innovative repair methods for meeting such "challenges" has been repair jobs requiring the replacement with new castings where damaged sections of equipment were found.

Shown below are jobs where locking, bolting and steel reinforcement could not effectively hold damaged areas in the equipment. These areas have been removed and machined to accept newly poured stress-relieved castings.

This remarkable innovation has enabled Reynolds-French to save numerous customers many millions of dollars in replacement costs and downtime.
