Stainless steel heinkel. This heinkel appeared in reasonable condition but beyond the normal additional refurb items post full disassembly it was found to have a coating on the shaft which had deteriorated. We decided not to risk a new coating and went for a full reoplacement shaft. Likewise for the first time in over 20 years we found the bowl insert had some cracks around the distribution bars. GCAL sourced a replacement bowl insert and brought from the USA to Germany for installtion. Other items included:

-New sight glass

-Repair to air re-circ pipe and fabricate new cyclone cover

- New pipe and housing bolts - fabricate

- Repair and grind clamping ring.
