Rugged loads and long exposure to the harsh sea elements take their toll on commercial shipping and fishing equipment. For more than 70 years, the marine industry has relied on Mar-Dustrial for fast and affordable repairs and replacement parts to keep operations sailing smoothly.
We supply Falk couplings, fluid sealing products, deck equipment and more for ships and port facilities. As one of one of just three factory-authorized Falk RENEW repair facilities in the nation, we also rebuild damaged maritime gear assemblies and restore failed speed drives to like-new performance and productivity.
In the marine world, power transmission equipment repairs are inevitable. How you handle them can have a significant impact on your bottom line. Mar-Dustrial saves maintenance crews precious time and money by offering:
Huge inventory. With the largest inventory of surplus parts in the industry, plus an off-site warehouse stuffed with housings and speed reducers, we’re able to fulfill virtually any gearbox, coupling or fluid sealing need. If we don’t have it on hand (which is unlikely), we can help you choose the right replacement model for the job.
Minimal downtime. When critical equipment fails, you’ll never have to wait long for a repair. We’re on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our crew of highly trained mechanics and machinists work around the clock to provide lightning-fast turnaround—usually within 24-48 hours. That’s less time spent sitting at port, waiting on repairs.
Affordable repairs. Having a vast assortment of new and used parts at our fingertips enables us to restore your speed reducer to full functionality at a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Every repair estimate we provide compares the price difference between new and surplus parts to help you make the best decision for your operation.
Reliable quality. Don’t be fooled by the low price tag; we deliver top-notch quality every time. Each of our parts, new or used, is thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Our rebuilt speed reducers are spin-tested to ensure like-new performance and backed by a 1-year warranty.
Even with our affordable repairs and rapid service, another power transmission repair is the last thing you need. Strictly adhering to recommended maintenance schedules helps keep wear and tear at bay.
Follow lubrication guidelines. Each system has its own lubrication needs, so make sure you complete oil changes according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. It’s also a good time to perform an oil sample analysis, which can reveal potential problems before they become major malfunctions.
Keep it clean. Marine operations often occur in wet and dirty conditions. Grime buildup can heighten the risk of contamination and reduce the life of equipment. Routine cleanings help protect machinery from the harsh working environment.
Monitor vibration. Vibration and harmonics data can also provide an early warning sign of impending failure. Changes in vibration may indicate that internal parts are breaking down or alignment is off, so conducting a regular vibration analysis is an essential part of preventive maintenance.
Check for wear. A visual inspection of gear teeth, ball bearings, couplings and other wearable parts also provides critical maintenance information. Look for fatigue, cracking, flaking or other damage.
