Cast Iron Repairs In-Situ
Cast Iron Repairs by the Leading Specialists in Cold Repairs to Cast Iron
Cast iron repairs carried out by the Metalock Process is widely accepted as the best method of repairing all cracked, broken and damaged castings in cast iron, for a wide range of industries in a multitude of applications.
Cast Iron Repairs - How Are They Achieved?
Our cast iron repairs are carried out by peening into prepared apertures, layers of Keys. The Keys are formed into a multi-dumbell shape from special nickel alloys. Being highly ductile they can be peened into a metal-to-metal condition and become almost integral with the parent metal of the component under repair.
These Keys are manufactured in a variety of sizes to suit each individual job. The high strength of the Keys ensures the return of a high percentage of the original strength
Cast iron repairs carried out by this method avoid introducing any heat stresses, so no distortion occurs and in many instances machining is unnecessary. It is invaluable in emergency situations, reduces downtime and avoids the replacement of expensive castings.
In the Marine Industry alone, many millions of pounds have been saved for ship owners by reducing time lost due to breakdowns. It has become commonplace for major items of capital plant and equipment to be saved by our prompt action following a catastrophic breakdown and for the equipment to then go on to give many more years of productive life.
