MOBILE EQUIPMENT REPAIR
ON THE JOB FAST
The life of a centrifuge is long but if, like most of our Clients, you're running 24 hours a day, centrifuges need maintenance. Yearly attention to wear and tear, bearing seals and balancing will keep a centrifuge running for a long time. Rebuilds typically take place every year or two. But when something goes wrong that stops your operation, you want service to be onsite as soon as possible.
Our typical call for mobile centrifuge repair is urgent because a non-functioning centrifuge is usually back-logging a process facility so it's important to get it back online as soon as possible. Our Technicians are dispatched to your site as soon as we get the call. If it's one of our centrifuges, our mechanics typically carry a certain number of spare parts so they may be able to do repairs right away with parts that are on hand. They typically have a spare rotating assembly with them so that they can switch that out and that almost always gets them going again right away. If it isn't one of our centrifuges, hotshot is one of many ways we can get parts to your facility in no time.
EXPERIENCED FIELD TECHNICIANS KNOW THEIR STUFF
Our field guys are very technical, with years of experience. We train our own mechanics in the shop so they are experts in our products. It's such a specialized field you can't take a regular heavy duty or automotive mechanic, and throw him into a situation like that. The guys that we send to the field have completely torn down centrifuges and put them back together. They know where to look for problems and how to diagnose them.
Diagnostic equipment is small and a Technician can take it with him on a plane. Arriving onsite, the Technician can use this diagnostic equipment to assess (vibration analysis, bearing analysis) the problem and get repairs under way.
We do have a portable machine that does allow us to little bit of balancing in the field, but not a full balance. We may need to return the centrifuge to the shop for full balancing.
We can do a basic electrical check to see if there are any electrical issues if it's drawing an excessive amount of amperage.
We have an internal scope, a camera with a long flexible end on it so we can go in and look at the inside of a centrifuge to see if wear is occurring. If you start to get wear, and you catch it in time you can get away with an inexpensive rebuild, but if you let it go too far, it starts to cut like a water jet through the steel and you can wind up with a very expensive rebuild. You can double the cost of a rebuild by letting it go too far. If it's starting to wear to a certain point, we recommend that they come into the shop for a full rebuild. The camera is the key; we can look at it and say you're ok for now but schedule a rebuild in a month. We can get you out of a bind but it's a temporary solution that needs prompt attention.
Our service radius is north as far as Fort Nelson, Saskatchewan and South as far as Texas.
