Stern tube seal bonding repair

New SC3 sterntube seal bonding machine in action

Simplex-Turbulo engineers have been enjoying working with the new SC3 bonding machine from SKF Marine for their sterntube seal service work.

Used recently on a service job for My Golden Shadow, pictured above, the new bonding kit is significantly lighter and more user-friendly than its predecessor.

On an average job, our engineers will need about 20kg worth of tools. The old bonding machine alone weighed about 6kg, so at a quarter of the weight, the new machine is a welcome addition to the toolbox!
