Class 15X Toilet Floor Corrosion Repair - On-depot

20/01/2016

The Problem

Customers have experienced excessive corrosion damage to the toilet floor area on their vehicles manufactured in the 1980’s, caused by corrosive liquids reacting with the structural materials.

Our Approach 

With our dedicated offsite team and targeted 24 hour notice period, we were able to be on depot the following day.
The work consisted of material analysis to identify the correct grade, the creation of weld procedures, cut out and replace steel plates and fit new bearers. Improved corrosion protection was added to prolong the life of the repair. NDT was carried out post repair and reports were issued.
Where necessary, structural engineering oversee was utilised and a letter of comfort provided.

The Result

Our quick response assists the TOCs in reducing their internal downtime for a C6 overhaul with a customer achieving an impressive 10 days. We can typically achieve this repair within 2 days.
