Rotary Kiln Maintenance & Repair


Since its formation in 1979, PKSE has grown in all aspects of mechanical maintenance for rotary kilns and similar rotating equipment and vessels such as industrial rotary dryers.  We still remain highly specialised in servicing this equipment although we do occasionally venture into servicing mills, coolers and others whenever appropriate.

These services include simple repair work such as changing bearings, rollers, installing or reversing gears, doing filler bar work by re-shimming tires, changing shell sections, installing seals right on and up to the installation of new kilns.

This is our "repair" division, now grown to be the largest department in the company and the one with the strongest growth.  Currently it generates about 50% of our overall annual revenues.

PKSE works with a small number of key approved partners for the provision of both equipment and skilled labour which is used to complement the Phillips in-house repair team.

"Over the years we have sent quite a number of our Maintenance and Engineering staff to the Phillips Kiln seminars on rotary vessels. The PKSE seminar provides our engineers with a better understanding of the static and dynamical aspects of the rotating vessels in our Fertilizer plants. This gives us a sustainable advantage in our quest to optimize our uptime and cost factors. Besides acquiring in-depth knowledge, it gives the participants the opportunity to meet peers from other companies and to expand their personal network. Last, but not least, the seminars are very well organized and fun to attend."
