Diaphragm Plate Machining

In-Situ Machining employs a number of methods that allow us to machine the seal weld out so a diaphragm plate can easily be removed. It also allows us to clean up the old spigot area so it can be used again to machine a new plate once the inspection or repairs on the exchanger are complete. As you can see in the pictures, we even have equipment and strategies that allow us to remove the plate when all the studs are still seized in place.
