Maintenance Plans

Regular maintenance is critical to avoid excessive repair costs and potentially catastrophic failure. MSHS offers routine maintenance to keep your equipment operating at peak performance, minimizing downtime. MSHS Woodward factory certified and skilled technicians have years of experience repairing Woodward governors. MSHS factory-authorized workshops with state-of-the-art Woodward test equipment ensure your Woodward Governors are maintained to meet your toughest demands.

Woodward Governor / Actuator Recommended Maintenance Schedule

Extend the life of your equipment with regular maintenance. Save time and money.

  • Change governor/actuator oil between 3,000 and 5,000 running hours
  • Ensure the use of proper oil
  • Perform overhaul and calibration between 20,000 and 25,000 running hours
  • Repair of auxiliary equipment is also recommended

Catastrophic failure may result if your governors are pushed past recommended limits of maintenance, i.e. seizure of oil pump, bearing failures, etc. If your prime mover is critical to your operations, a recommended preventive maintenance schedule should be followed. Repair costs can be excessive when units are operated beyond the hours of recommended maintenance.
