We investigated the extent of the corrosion and agreed the scope of work with the client. We removed the skin and pillars and used a needle gun on any areas of corrosion. We replaced the existing pillars with new pillars and skins. Finally, we sealed with industry recognised inhibitors and sealants.
Chrysalis Rail conducted corrosion repairs to 59 x Class 507/508’s. The scope of work included repairs to the corrugated crash beam and cant rail interface, cab end corner pillars, cab end centre pillars and cab and vestibule flooring. The work included removal of any components, inspections, preliminary work, replacement of any parent material or components, reassembly and any associated testing.
Chrysalis Rail is currently delivering a C6 refurbishment project which includes complete corrosion repairs on 79 two-car class 142 DMU’s. Following a thorough assessment at vehicle input, the vehicle has a full strip out of internal seating and fixtures. Corrosion work can include: cant rail replacement, external door step well burn out and replacement, window pan replacement, body exterior and flooring/ linoleum replacement. Each vehicle is then subject to thorough associated testing, accompanied with robust project recording throughout the project duration.
