Fast propeller repairs restore efficiency and save money

Fast propeller repairs restore efficiency and save money

When damage to propellers occurs due to impact with ice and other debris, Hydrex will help you, even if the damage is quite extensive. Both types of repairs can be carried out rapidly and efficiently on-site and underwater.

Ideally, the in-house developed cold straightening technique is used. This procedure enables Hydrex technicians to straighten damaged blades in-water, allowing commercial operations to continue without the need to drydock.

Should a piece of the blade be broken or if there is other damage too extensive for straightening, a section of the blade will be cropped. This kind of repair is carried out with the propeller blade cutting equipment developed by the Hydrex research department. By doing so, the best possible efficiency is obtained.

We also have the tools to carry out detailed crack inspections on propeller blades. An informed decision can then be made concerning any required follow-up action. Catching problems early can save much time and money.
