Therefore, Gatco offers a rebuilding program which will restore the rotary bushing to its original I.D. size, runout specifications and life expectancy. Rebuilding can be done an indefinite number of times as long as the case is re-usable as received, and involves replacement of the inner liner, bearings and seals. Upon inspection, if a rotary bushing cannot be rebuilt, it will be returned at a nominal charge for inspection.
