At Cast Iron Welding Services, we take pride in our welding technique which works perfectly for the intricate challenges of Wartsila 46 Cylinder Heads. Our approach combines expertise and precision to restore these critical components to their original performance and durability.

Our Welding Technique

Our skilled technicians employ a specialised cast iron welding gas fusion technique that has been refined through years of experience, ensuring optimal results for Wartsila Cylinder Head remanufacturing. The process comprises the following steps:

Inspection and Assessment: We begin by thoroughly inspecting the cylinder head for damages, such as valve seat erosion, pocket damage, or cooling channel corrosion. This assessment guides our approach to welding and remanufacturing.

Precise Welding: Our welding experts use the appropriate filler material and welding parameters to rebuild damaged areas, such as valve seat pockets and cooling channels. This precision welding restores the original structural integrity and dimensions.

Finishing: After welding, we meticulously machine the remanufactured areas to exact tolerances. This ensures that the cylinder head functions optimally within the engine assembly.

Quality Assurance: Each remanufactured Wartsila Cylinder Head undergoes rigorous quality checks to verify its performance, structural integrity, and compatibility with the engine system.

Expert Valve Seat Restoration for Wartsila 46 Cylinder Heads

One of the most frequent issues in Wartsila 46 Cylinder Heads is valve seat replacement. This is often due to erosion resulting from coolant leakage between the seat and pocket. Once the largest seat size has been installed and necessitates replacement, the head becomes unsuitable for further service.

Our Cast Iron Welding Services can reconstruct valve seat pockets, precisely machine them to their original dimensions, and install standard-sized valve seats, just as they were initially used on the head.

Restoration of Wartsila 46 Cylinder Head Cross Bore Cooling Channels

In certain Wartsila 46 applications, the cross-bore cooling channels within the flame plate can suffer from corrosion, potentially harming valve seat pockets. Our process involves the thorough removal of corroded sections, followed by comprehensive reconstruction of the cooling channels. Subsequently, we meticulously machine them back to their original dimensions for optimal performance.
