OEM Replacement Components

KWS offers very cost-effective OEM replacement components that are dimensionally exact duplicates to the original components. In many cases, we can design and manufacture the replacement components to be better than and to outlast the original components. Going back to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for replacement components on your conveying and processing equipment can not only result in repeating the same failure, but it can also be decidedly more expensive.

Typical Applications

  • Power Industry – Replacement of hollow-flight screw processor screws
  • Pulp & Paper Industry – Replacement of 317L stainless steel repulper screws
  • Food Industry – Replacement of special food grade extruder screws
  • Pulp & Paper Industry – Replacement of chip reclaim screws

KWS engineers are qualified to evaluate your equipment and provide enhanced solutions. After examining each component for wear and corrosion to determine the cause of failure, KWS can offer improvements in design and materials to extend the life of each component in the system.

KWS is certified by ASME for pressure vessel repair and replacement. We can provide replacement components and systems that are “U” stamp or “R” stamp coded in accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.
