Asset managers, reliability engineers and other key personnel within heavy industry sectors know only too well the difficulties that can be faced as mechanical equipment nears the end of its working life.

Typical problems may include increased friction resulting in increased wear; high vibration levels, and emissions. Downtime of critical equipment often increases as a result of such issues.

At AB Industries we address these issues by providing remanufacture solutions for a wide range of rotating equipment, aiming to ultimately decrease downtime and consequently increase profitable time of equipment.

Solutions include complete overhaul of equipment, remetalling of plain bearings, parts supply, and industrial lubricant solutions to help extend the life of critical equipment assets.
