Hydro Turbine Bearings

Hydro turbines are machines that convert water power into mechanical energy. They consist of two main parts: the rotor (which spins) and the stator (which generates electricity). The turbine bearings protect the machine from general wear and tear over time. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about hydro turbine bearings.  […]

Dragline Excavator Uses

A dragline excavator is a large machine used to dig trenches and repurpose overburden at mining sites. Primarily used to dismantle and transport materials, dragline excavators uses make jobsites efficient and cost-effective. They are commonly used for surface mining and for civil engineering projects.  The name comes from the fact that the bucket on the […]

Old Dragline

The mining industry has integrated new technology and machinery to process larger scale operations. Excavation is one of the most costly and time consuming aspects of mining operations, a primary reason many mine job sites are equipped with heavy duty equipment like draglines. This type of equipment is designed to easily and effectively dismantle and […]

What is In Place Machining

In place machining companies provide services to a variety of industrial, scientific and military clients anywhere across the globe. Also called in-situ machining, in place machining contractors provide their customers with machining services through portable or mobile machine units that come to them wherever they are needed. Where is it Used? In place machining is […]

Single Point Mooring Buoy

Single point mooring (SPM) buoy systems are used to keep a vessel stationed at a fixed location. They serve an integral purpose in offsite machining, and there are many configurations and designs depending on their use. Follow our guide below to these buoy systems, how they work and their benefits. What is Single Point Mooring […]

Cavitation Repair

Science Alert describes cavitation as the formation of the bubbles or voids in the liquids. These are caused by quick changes in pressure. Cavitation is a phenomenon where rapid pressure changes lead to the formation of small vapor-filled cavities in places where the pressure is relatively low. When subjected to higher pressure cavities, called “bubbles” or […]

Field Machining

Every significant machine operation—a power plant, for example—relies on not just a single machine but many different machines. Each one of these machines and their components must be running properly. However, if any are not fully operational, the entirety of the machine operation can be compromised. Unfortunately, most significant machine operations can’t afford to send […]

Advantages of Onsite Machining

Onsite or field machining involves doing repairs at the site of the breakdown. The company completing this service uses portable machines which they bring to the repair problem area instead of transporting the piece of machinery to be fixed or replaced in their machine shop. There are many advantages of onsite machining, which we are […]

Hydro Turbine Repair

What is a Hydro Turbine? Hydro turbines are devices used in hydroelectric generation plants. A hydro turbine is a rotary machine. It changes the kinetic energy of moving water and the potential energy of still water into mechanical energy. Water turbines have been in operation in their simpler forms since the eighteen hundreds. They were widely used for industrial […]
