RECONDITIONING PROCESS

 

Following is the typical process we use to recondition used winches, depending on the needs of the customer.

 

INITIAL PREPARATION  The winch is completely disassembled, inspected for wear on gears, bearings, shafts, etc.  All of the preceding components are thoroughly inspected to ensure they are in very good, used condition. If they are found to be damaged or worn beyond acceptable tolerances they are replaced.

 

PAINT  We sandblast the existing frame to white metal.  Prior to reassembly the machine is painted with our exclusive 3-part corrosion-resistant paint process which includes a zinc primer coat, an epoxy primer coat, followed by a polyeurathane top coat in the color (within reason) of your choice to insure maximum duribility and protection.

 

FRICTION AND BRAKE BAND LININGS  The friction and brake band linings are replaced with new high-quality, non-asbestos lining material.

 

BEARINGS  All bearings are thoroughly inspected to ensure that they are not worn beyond acceptable tolerences.  If damage or wear is discovered, they are replaced.

 

GEAR GUARD  We include gear guards, built new, that reduce the possibility of the cable becoming meshed in the gears.  All gear guards are painted inside and out. 

 

AIR SYSTEM & AIR CONTROL STATION  If the unit is an air-controlled machine it will be air-controlled on all functions; frictions, brakes & dogs.  All air cans and air controls are new or rebuilt.  The air control console is built to a specified dimension and is remotable to a distance of up to 100 feet, if desired, for pilothouse applications. 

 

PARTS & REPLACEMENT PARTS  All parts, including pins, bolts, nuts, shafts, etc., are anti-seized for ease of disassembly.  Most replacement parts are available from our inventory or can be fabricated or manufactured expediently.
