Wileman were approached by the customer looking for replacement parts for their scrubber barrel no longer manufactured by the original supplier. The machine was over 50 years old and located in a gold mine in central Angola so a site visit was difficult. The machine required new roller paths and running gear. Armed with a few overall dimensions from the customer Wileman were able to design the replacement parts to their own high standard. The bearing housing supports were split at 45 degrees to the horizontal which is unusual. Wileman designed an equivalent bearing housing which was manufactured by Timken Bearings in Dudley from a drawing provided by Wileman. This supply provides further proof of Wileman’s ability to provide bespoke designs to customers requirements.
