Dry shaft seal renewal underwater

A leaking seal is always an unpleasant experience for a ship owner or operator. It forces him to go off-hire, costing time and money. We have developed a flexible mobdock repair method that enables the underwater replacement of all types and sizes of shaft seals. This technology has been successfully used by our diver/technicians for over a decade. 

Hydrex: Damaged stern tube seals will cause an increasing amount of oil leaking or water ingress as the damage worsens. By replacing the seals when the damage is first discovered, Hydrex keeps the down time low. The ship can keep its schedule as seal repairs can be performed during cargo operations. We do this by creating a dry underwater working environment around the shaft.

Shaft seal repairs are performed in cooperation with OEMs. This allows us to provide our customer with original spare parts which guarantees the best quality material.
