Problem: Worn Shaft Causes Shutdown, No Time For Repair Work
Bearing failure causes shaft damage such as grooving and gouging of bearing seat metal. Additionally, environmental debris, chemical attack, lack of lubrication and even grounding issues (for wind turbines) can wear down shafts. When these problems occur, the turning shaft becomes compromised, requiring shut down to prevent further damage or system breakage.

Repair work causes downtime and lost production. Quick repairs on site can minimize the associated costs. Unfortunately, traditional shaft repairs involve disassembling the machine and transporting it to a machine shop, a lengthy process. For larger shafts like wind turbines, this may require expensive crane work and roof removal. In some instances, repair might not be feasible at all.
Solution: On Site Epoxy Metal Shaft Repair
In situations where conventional repair is impractical or impossible, our team can perform shaft repair in situ at your site. Any size shaft can be quickly fixed without dismantling the machine completely. This expedites repairs and minimizes downtime and disruption at your facility. Most repairs are done in hours, not days or weeks. We use proven, durable Belzona epoxy metal to rebuild metal loss and restore the shaft profile for proper bearing seating or keyway fit.
These repairs last a long time. We use Belzona materials which resist impacts, abrasion and chemicals. We offer specialized self-lubricating formulations for wind turbine applications where friction can be problematic. We use a former to precisely match the shaft size and allow performance of the work on site quickly and durably.
