Cylinder Head Reconditioning :

Repairing a Cylinder Head by SHIP STORE offers a sound and lasting repair at a fraction of the new replacement cost. On receipt at our works, all components are thoroughly cleaned, degreased and identified with a unique reference number to ensure traceability. A full inspection report is produced, including photographs and sent to the customer for approval including recommendations for repair and spares required.


Once approved, the Cylinder Head is machined ready for welding. Defective and worn areas are rebuilt with close grained machineable cast iron, fused perfectly with the parent material. Strictly controlled pre- and post-heat treatment procedures are individually recorded. This is followed by precision re-machining of all critical areas to original limits and tolerances, and fitting of new seats, guides and all spares required, carried out in our own state-of-the-art workshops.

As a trusted ship repair company SHIP STORE offers you a tailor made service for all kinds reconditioning jobs at all Turkish Ports and straits.

Exhaust Valve Housing / Cages Reconditioning :

SHIP STORE provides the complete reconditioning service for Valve Cages.  We believe that there is no short cut to producing a first class reconditioned product. We have established the correct welding parameters, pre- and post- heat treatment thereby removing the likelihood of cracking through the use of incorrect materials and procedures. SHIP STORE's ship repair procedures are strictly controlled to ensure a quality repair every time.

The seat and landing end of the water cooled cage is removed - often revealing complete blockage or erosion of the coolant passageways.We manufacture, at our facility, a new seat, the seat is then stellited on the valve seating face to ensure hardness. The water resistant passageways are cleared and the seat is then welded onto the body.

Finish machining is attended to with equal care.  Attention to detail is essential - in particular the stellited valve seating and valve cage landing faces leave no margin for error. The same meticulous attention to detail is applied to the reconditioning of upper and lower components of both cooled and un-cooled two piece valve cages.

Before the exhaust valve cage is complete, we machine the guide bore and fit new valve guides in house. The exhaust valve cage is then complete, painted, boxed & despatched.

Please send your inquiries to the SHIP STORE, which has been providing the best service to you for years in the ship repair industry.
