At Hi-Tek Balancing we use innovative methods to repair shafts in place. Many times it is very difficult, or impossible and expensive to remove a fan shaft when the bearing has worn a groove in the shaft. In many cases we can repair the shaft using a modified bearing that fits in place of the original, and provide a thick wall sleeve that straddles the worn bearing surface. These methods save many hours of downtime and provide a permanent repair without the use of resin based shaft repair compounds often fail soon after they are deployed.
Fix it right the first time, call us to discuss your solution. Stay tuned here in the future for our standard shaft repair kits.
