Statements from CPPC:

Rechimer O. Daitol, Mechanical planning engineer at CPPC says:

“For injection pump reconditioning, as you can see, we have saved up to 61.5 man hours when reconditioning one unit of injection pump with the Chris-Marine Fuel Pump Grinding machine. In an 8 hour job, you can fininsh an injection pump assembly – unlike before, where it took us 4 days, or much worse, a week, to finish one.”
