ACTION TAKEN BY RA POWER SOLUTIONS FOR SUCCESSFUL REPAIR:-
The crank pin no. 3 was ground to the undersize of 0.5 mm which is considered to be first undersize.
The main objective of RA Power Solutions is not only to repair the crankshaft for which we were contracted but to ensure that after repairs the engine performs satisfactory, following was checked.
Big end and small end of the connecting rod were thoroughly checked dimensionally for bore.
All the connecting rods matching surfaces, bolts were subject to crack detection by MPI. To our surprise, six sets of connecting rods bolts had hairline cracks. The power plant was advised to replace the connecting rod bolts as no crack on connecting rod and bolts were admissible.
The bearings were used and were subject to visual and bearing thickness inspection.
All dimensions were observed within limits and it was recommended to use the same crank pin bearings as they were in a good condition.
In case of crankpin nos 3, since it was undersized to first step size of 0.5 mm, client was requested to arrange for the under size bearing.
During the presence of our technicians on vessel, the diesel generating was assembled and put on full load.
