FAQ

How long will a service job take?

Three days for a standard overhaul job on one shaft.

Where do our service engineers work?

Our service engineers work world wide.  

We have a branche office in Panama offering fast response to any needs for stern tube seals service in the caribbean area.  

 

Do you offer seal service in China?

Yes we do, with our own Shanghai based service engineers.

 

Can we overhaul the stern tube seals without pulling the shaft?

Yes we can, we will cut the old sealing rings out. The new endless sealing rings will then be cut, and put back into the seal housing.  The new sealing rings are glued back together with purpose built bonding tools and glue. Performed by our experienced service engineer, this will result in a bond which is stronger than the sealing ring material.  

Is a afloat repair job possible?
