Foundation Repair, Realignment and Regrout of a K-6510 Gas Compressor
Alphatec Engineering is a machinery grouting specialist. The company was called upon after the breakdown of a K-6510 recycle gas compressor.
The original brief was to repair the foundation, remove the damaged grout/concrete, and replace the crankcase and crosshead support anchor bolts.
After removal of the motor mounting slides, the anchor bolts were found to be badly corroded, and these were also cored out and replaced. Since there is the possibility that the crankcase may be replaced by a new or reconditioned unit in future, a soleplate installation was recommended and designed.
