Important Details on these Waukesha Compressor Borescope Photos
Intake Valve in Natural Gas Compressor: The images below of the valve seat and intake valve show unusual build-up, which was caused by a coolant leakage.
Results of Coolant Rupture – Natural Gas Compressor: The ViewTech inspection videoscope was able to confirm visually, without dismantling any cylinder heads, that there was a pool of coolant lying on top of the piston. The coolant had leaked down the cylinder walls, created build-up on the intake valve, and caused damage to the engine.
These images convinced the compressor’s owner to authorize the repairs quickly, getting the engine repaired and back online in record time.
