DMI Dubai's reconditioning process for connecting rods is developed to give ship operators, ready access to low cost reconditioning.
Common defects observed in connecting rods include:
Our reconditioning process involves detailed inspection to address all critical areas. All serration and bolts are checked for cracks. If any cracks are found on these areas then the rod is considered beyond repair. Rod and cap are then tightened as per OEM's instruction. Big end bore is checked for ovality. In line with our QA and QC procedures all the records are measured and reported.
