WORKS IN WORKSHOP
RS MOTOR has a fully equipped workshop in Porriño (Pontevedra, Spain) with the necessary experience, equipment and supplies to perform maintenance works on the gas fuelled engines we have under our maintenance. We also carry out reconditioning works for the most important elements of the engine.
An engine overhaul is a major maintenance intervention, where the engine is removed and disassembled part by par,t following approved assembly processes. Worn elements are replaced and the reconditioned engine is returned to its initial state of use.
Due to the complexity of the procedure, we generally take the overhauled engine to our workshop. Here we have all the necessary means and equipment to carry out these works with all the guarantees on engines up to 3.60 MW.
Sometimes, and where downtime makes it unfeasible to remove the engine to our workshop, we can perform the overhaul on an exchange block, minimizing downtime-machine and resuming production in minimal time.
Reconditioning an engine involves disassembling its mechanical elements, inspecting and verifying the state of the engine, cleaning the mechanical parts with ultrasounds and carrying out controls and/or hydraulic tests. Worn elements are replaced and the reconditioned engine is restored to zero hours.
Engine elements usually reconditioned in the RS MOTOR workshop are:
- Cylinder heads
- Water pumps
- Control elements
- Plate heat exchangers
- Oil pumps
- Starter motors
- Connecting rods (dimensional control)
- Zero regulating valves
- Water jackets
- Butterfly valves
- Fuel / air mixers
- Fuel pumps
