Our specialist governor technicians have over 120 years of collective experience
with governors operating in the power generation, sugar milling, mining, oil & gas
and transportation industries. Our team of technicians, combined with our advanced
workshop facilities and large stock holding, ensures an efficient and high level
of service. Please read further about our services:
Our workshop has been designed primarily for quality and with eight full time
mechanical and electronic governor technicians and a sizeable workshop we are also able to manage any number
of simultaneous governor repairs should the need arise. Our average service
turn-around is between 5-10 working days. During an emergency breakdown, where a
defective governor has the potential to cause substantial downtime and economic
loss, a same day turnaround service is provided. Under such circumstances we
either arrange the repair or a
service-exchange unit is offered.
We offer the following services for Woodward, Zexel and Diesel Kiki governors and instrumentation:
Service – a full overhaul of your equipment including disassembly,
cleaning, examination and replacement of worn parts, re-assembly with a
rebuild kit, testing and calibration. Our reputation for high service quality
can be attributed to our dedicated service personnel and their efforts to
restore every governor to the original factory specification and quality
finish. We have a fully equipped, state of the art
Machine Workshop which enables us to manufacture a range of governor
parts. In some cases where other repair facilities may declare a
governor irrepairable and recommend to the customer that the governor be
"written off", GSA have the expertise and workshop facilities to manufacture
obsolete and specialist parts to prolong the life of the governor thereby
saving customers purchasing a costly replacement.
Repair – to repair and/or replace damaged or worn parts
Test – to test unit performance to OEM specification.
Recalibrate – to original or new specification.
All workshop services are covered by our unlimited workmanship warranty. Parts
and materials used in services and repairs are covered by the parts manufacturer’s

technicians are able to travel to onsite locations within Australia, New Zealand
and the Southeast Asian region. Primarily, our field service has been conducted in
the Sugar Milling and Shipping industries to assist in troubleshooting and
performing on-site repairs. Where Ships are berthed in Australian or Pacific Rim
country ports, our technicians will extend these services to be carried out on the
ship in port. Where more complex repairs are required, governors will be
brought back to the workshop for service and repair. Where this is not
possible, a service-exchange governor will be offered.
For customers who are having their governors
serviced at our workshop, we offer in-house training for their personnel. Training
covers the fundamentals of governor control systems and governor function
troubleshooting. Personnel are able to view the entire governor overhaul process
including the disassembly, identification of worn and unserviceable parts,
assembly, functional testing and calibration. Training sessions are
customized to suit your specific equipment and applications.
For customers who require a quick turn around
or for those who are unable to send their governor due to unavailability of a
spare, Governor Services stock a number of Woodward governors for
Service-Exchange. These governors are second hand models which have been
overhauled to an “as new” quality. Any governor exchanged using the
Service-Exchange program, is then overhauled and serviced. On completion,
the governor is acquired into our Service-Exchange stock for future exchange.
