Maintenance costs are a drain, but necessary to keep your system up and running in good working order. Regularly scheduled on-site maintenance is a convenient way to keep your valves working at their best. Knowing that, what should you look for in on-site maintenance services?
Why Do I Need Maintenance?
The biggest reason you need preventive maintenance is to make sure all your system components remain in good working order. Worn out items can be replaced before they cause problems and prevent further damage to main components. It helps you avoid major unplanned problems that are expensive to fix and take your system down for longer periods of time.
What Does the Service Contract Include?
Your basic service contract should include the following:
Disassembly: More than an external visual “look” at the components, make sure they take components apart to examine the internal items.
Inspection: A thorough check on all components for its condition, including wear and damages.
Cleaning: All components need to be cleaned so that dirt and other contaminants won’t be passed through the system.
Replacement: All seals are replaced, as well as any worn components
Full Inspection Report
The key to the on-site service is a full inspection report. It needs to give a description of the condition of all component and a listing of all replaced parts. Your service partner should offer recommendations on future needs, including replacement of major items. You need to work together to schedule full remanufacturing service or to have extensive repairs done.
