Inspections & Studies

Machine Inspections - Richmond Engineering Works offers the following inspections for your bulk material handling machines:

  • Mechanical Inspection
  • Electrical Inspection
  • Structural Inspection

Our inspections consist of a detailed visual examination of the structural, mechanical and/or electrical components of the machine.  We pay particular attention to high stress areas and critical components, connections and welds.  If warranted, additional NDE (non-destructive examination) such as dye penetrant, ultrasonic, mag particle and vibration testing can be performed as well as laser alignment surveys.

Every inspection includes a complete report with pictures and descriptions as well as recommendations for services and upgrades that will help to extend the life of your machine.

Engineered Parts – Let Richmond Engineering work with you to replace an old or obsolete part, piece, or system with an off-the-shelf solution.

Engineering Studies - Richmond Engineering can supply you with various engineering studies to help you determine:

Can your Dumper adequately handle heavier rail cars?

Can your Dumper/Positioner handle longer train sets?

Is height clearance a problem in your Dumper barrel?

Failure Analysis/Troubleshoot Problems – Let one of our PE certified engineers with over a 100 man-years of bulk material handling experience help you to determine what caused your failure and problem and work with you to find an economical solution.
