Herculock, a division of Duny Group, specializes in repairing cracked and broken castings with cold repair processes that leave every part in excellent working condition. Our comprehensive repair capabilities include reliable and efficient babbitt repair.
Babbitt bearings are high-quality, tough bearings that support weight and mitigate rotational friction on rotating industrial equipment. Products such as fans, turbines, and motors all rely on Babbitt bearings to support the shaft’s weight. These bearing get their name from the Babbitt metal bonded to the lining, which is a soft alloy that melts at relatively low temperatures.
Babbitt is a standard name for multiple alloys with similar characteristics that are used for bearings. This metal takes on the wear damage or damage from failures or chemical contamination to protect the shaft. As part of our comprehensive Babbitt repair process, we follow these steps:
- Reconditioning the bearing
- Cleaning the water jackets
- Repairing the housing to meet any required specifications
- Insulating the bearing
Comprehensive repairs return Babbitt bearings to peak working condition so your machinery can continue to perform without malfunctions or delays. Unscheduled downtime and malfunctions can be extremely costly to any business. We work fast with our state-of-the-art machinery and advanced processes to get your castings and Babbitt parts in proper working condition again.
Our cold repair processes feature a lock and lacing process that doesn’t use heat or cause associated heat damage. To ensure that each part is safe, parts may undergo extensive testing, such as hydrostatic testing, ultrasonic testing, MEG testing, and more.
