RA Power Solutions received an emergency call from a Steel Company based in Indonesia regarding damage of their Engine SULZER 6RND68.
On arrival of our team of engineers, it was observed that lower engine block of SULZER 6RND68 was damaged badly. Hence it required disassembly of complete engine, overhauling & repair of engine block by metal stitching & metal locking.
Following is the brief of job description executed:
I) Inspection and overhaul of the cylinder covers including the fuel and starting valves located in the covers. The cylinder covers cooling spaces were also inspected, cleaned and fitted back with new O-rings.
II) Dismount, Inspect and overhaul the exhaust valves, renewed the seals and grinding the valve spindles.
