Specialist Services

W H Shoebridge & Sons Ltd have the experience and flexibility to provide bespoke services specific to their customer’s needs. Our engineers are qualified in Confined Spaces, the repair, overhaul and reclamation of equipment used in explosive atmospheres (BS EN and IEC 60079-19) and Safety On-Line Valve Testing.

We offer comprehensive predictive maintenance with our on and off site services and we would be delighted to provide you with a no obligation assessment of how our specialist services could benefit you.

Condition Monitoring

Through measuring vibration levels on plant, it is possible to monitor the operating condition of machines at regular intervals, thereby detecting possible faults in the early stages.

The ability to detect these faults enables you to address the problem as soon as it develops. This eliminates any damage that may be caused to ancillary equipment, reducing down-time while the repair is carried out

Laser Alignment

Laser Alignment provides a comprehensive range of advantages, from significant power savings reducing consumption of 10% to low maintenance and down time. Statistically, Laser Alignment can benefit from the decline of mechanical seals by 65%, Pump repairs by 30% and prolong the life of bearings. It is estimated that approximately 50% of rotating machine failures are a result of misalignment.

Baker Testing

This technology is an up to date Advanced Winding Analysis. It enables us to provide our customers with a concise report on the condition, behaviour and performance of a motor and if tested at given intervals a predicted life span can be achieved by monitoring trends from each assessment of the motor under test.

Thermal Imaging

We can supply a Thermal Imaging Survey report to be used as predictive maintenance to identify thermal abnormalities that indicate defects at an early stage, enabling remedial maintenance to equipment to be carried out before failure materializes.

Site Services

We offer a wide range of expertise in many fields of Mechanical and Electrical services from on-site maintenance and testing of machinery, Fault Diagnostics, Servicing, Repairing and overhauling of all types of Pumps, Gearboxes, Fans and Motors.


On site and internal balancing of fans, impellors and couplings can be provided to prevent early bearing failure, shaft and housing wear.
