Compressor Overhaul

Wabtec locomotive Compressor Overhaul Repair servicing



Wabtec Rail offers a comprehensive overhaul and repair service for locomotive compressors from various classes of locomotives including Class 66, Class 67 & Class 70.
 
Wabtec Rail set up a modern state-of-the-art compressor overhaul and test facility at our Doncaster site in 2012 with parts supply and support from Wabtec Global Services USA and Triangle Engineered Products (part of the Wabtec Corporation) who between them are by far the largest Locomotive Compressor repair and overhaul business in North America.
 
 Our standard overhaul of Gardner Denver WLN compressors (as fitted to Class 66 and Class 67 locomotives) includes fitting new High Pressure and Low Pressure cylinder assemblies with improved cam type pistons and improved design piston rings and connecting rods, new crankshaft and bearings, a new flexible hose water conversion kit and manifold, new inlet and outlet valves and 100% of all bearings, seals, gaskets and fasteners. The compressor is then functionally tested and run-in in the fully automatic test house for over 4½ hours at speeds up to 1050rpm.
