Marine fuel injection
Our fuel-injection technicians have access to the very latest in test and overhaul equipment. Our test shop is equipped with Hartridge and Merlin heavy-duty test rigs that allow us to calibrate multi-cylinder fuel pumps up to 20-cylinder configurations, or single-cylinder fuel pumps such as Wärtsilä 38-46s, Pielsticks, Paxman RPHs and RP200s, Mirrlees Ks, and MB275s.
We also have all the pneumatic test equipment for Wärtsilä Vasa 22 / 32 fuel pumps. When we overhaul block-type fuel pumps such as the RTA series, the blocks are blanked and tested to 1,250bar using Obel-P pneumatic equipment. Any pump block overhauled by us is certified as pressure tested and crack-free.
We are constantly upgrading equipment to cater for the most modern engine applications, such as the electronic and common-rail technology advancements.
