Resurfacing Process


Phillips pioneered the in-place resurfacing process with machines designed for this specific application. We have used our experience to continually revise and improve our machines over the years. Several sizes of grinding machines are available to accommodate any size or make or rotary unit, including a compact "Low Profile" machine, which can grind tyres and rollers in a tight access area. This assortment of grinding machine sizes guarantees the best service for your equipment.

PKSE crews take accurate tyre and roller measurements with a proprietary circumferential measuring device while the unit is running.  It is not necessary to shut the rotary unit down during or after the reconditioning process to take measurements.

PKSE crews work exclusively with rotary equipment. On average, each crew supervisor has over 5 years of experience in resurfacing tyres and rollers.  This depth of experience means our skilled supervisors have mastered the various techniques required to resurface different makes and sizes of rotary equipment.  They can offer useful tips to keep your rotary equipment in top condition and can spot potential problems that less experienced technicians may miss.

After a resurfacing job is completed, the tyres and rollers will have a surface finish of 125 RMS or better, edges will be chamfered to prevent rollover breakage, and circumferential measurements taken while the unit is operating will show .010" (.25 mm) or less taper across the face (radius). Our experienced crews can assist your personnel to make proper roller adjustments and can train them to properly perform future adjustments that will be required for your unit.  Resurfacing allows proper adjustment of rollers, which in turn reduces power consumption, drive component wear and load bearing component wear.

PKSE has completed many successful resurfacing jobs around the world. Contact us for further information and pricing.
