Tips On Governor Transportation

Over the years of working in the governor service industry we have identified a few common occurrences in receiving governors which can cause damage to equipment or problems with the service documentation.  Here are a few tips to ensure your governor arrives safely and with the relevant documentation.


Packing Your Governor

  • Ensure the governor has been drained of oil (Fig. GT-1)

    Note: You may be required to turn the governor upside-down to drain all oil.  This is a compulsory requirement

    of all air freight carriers as the governor often has to be turned horizontally for loading.

  • Use a solid metal or wooden box and label the box with the correct "THIS WAY UP" position for transportation.   (Fig. GT-2)

  • Secure the governor to the box

  • Surround the secured governor with sufficient packaging so that the governor cannot move within the box.

We are able to supply specially designed steel fabricated governor transportation boxes for the return and future transportation of your governors.  These boxes are fitted with 1 inch thick construction ply bases so that your governor can be easily secured to the steel frame.
