"RME’s Certified Rebuild provides 'like new' reliability for aged equipment to support relines well into the future. This rebuild takes the RUSSELL MRM right down to its core fabrications which are sandblasted, inspected and repainted before the RUSSELL MRM is assembled with new components. RME is so confident in a rebuild that we are prepared to offer new equipment warranty conditions. It is also the perfect opportunity to install the more invasive upgrades to update the safety and performance beyond the original specification or standards."
