Project: Multi Use Gearbox / Engine Removal Tool For A Gas Turbine

Client: Centrax Industries

Materials: S275JR & S355JR

Timescale: 12 weeks approx.

Quantity: One

Finish: 3-coat system finished in Yellow RAL1004

Having identified the requirement for a system to safely remove either the gearbox and/or core engine from a gas turbine, Centrax Industries designed a tool for achieving both.  Rilmac Fabrication were delighted to be contracted to build the first ever model of the new system.  Built from S275JR & S355JR Steel the device has a safe working load of 8.5 Tonnes and was proof load tested to 12.75 Tonnes.

The unit is designed to move around on four castor wheels to ensure positioning in the correct location. Four power jacks then allow the surface to be raised to the required height and levelled out, prior to taking the weight of the gearbox or core engine.  Rilmac were able to source and fit both the most suitable castors and power jacks for this project.

The completed unit was finished to a high standard with machined surfaces and a 3-coat system finished in Yellow RAL1004.  There was rigorous testing throughout, including MPI tests to welds.  As this was the first of its kind there was also additional attention to detail to ensure a smooth process could be developed for the fabrication of future units.

What Our Clients Say

"I would like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you for all your hard work over the past 12 months. We have had a huge task and successfully hit all our targets on time with a fantastic safety record and good numbers with the NHBC.
We have also had great scores with the Considerate Constructors again winning an award in March and now in the running for another award this coming March. We have completed on 61 plots this year, mainly apartments which has been a very challenging build with penthouses that have driven us crazy with the designs, but we got there.
Again thank you and on behalf of myself and the team."
