Repairs, Refurbishments & Replacements
BGB can repair, refurbish or replace all types of slip rings. The refurbished slip ring will be returned to a similar "as new” condition, even if the slip ring is physically damaged.
If the unit is beyond repair, BGB can provide brand new slip rings complete with new brush gear (if damaged or functioning incorrectly) to the same spec as originally designed. Replacement brushes and other parts commonly used in repairs, such as microswitch systems, can also be supplied.
BGB can perform the following tasks:
- Electrically test for any faults, including flash test @ 13kV and load test to check for any buildup of resistance in the slip ring
- Fully clean to remove excess carbon dust build-up
- Machine rings back to correct surface finish and address any concentricity issues (scrolls are also cleaned during this process)
- Re-apply anti-tracking varnish to maintain correct electrical ratings
- Re-balance slip rings
- Strip, clean and rebuild
