Plant Asset Replacement
From maintenance of your plant assets to their replacement, we’ll help you effectively plan and then deliver your projects for you.
If you’re looking to save your organisation unnecessarily premature investment costs, we can help you extend the life of your equipment through inspection, testing and providing a full range of equipment overhaul services.
An overhaul consists of identifying the worn or under-performing components and replacing or repairing them, thus reconditioning your equipment to perform as good as new. As well as avoiding an unplanned investment in new equipment, equipment upgrades performed during the overhaul can often reduce running costs too.
The condition of your equipment can be identified through condition based monitoring (CBM), such as vibration analysis and thermography and other forms of CBM methods. This will enable maintenance to be planned in advance which will reduce inconvenience, prevent unexpected failures and avoid downtimes that could cause serious financial losses and devastating product delays.
At Pumptec Services Group, we’ll work with you to find a solution that minimises downtime. Through careful planning, we schedule work to limit the impact and inconvenience to your workforce, your customers and end users. Decommissioning and removal, reinstallation and recommissioning, as well as transportation to and from our Service Centre can all be provided if necessary. We can also provide advice regarding your CAPEX Programme.
A Greener Solution
Equipment and asset upgrades to the latest technology can save energy and improve efficiency, enabling you to reduce your impact on the environment and reduce your carbon footprint.
The Pumptec Services Group team are experienced engineers, who have developed a thorough equipment overhaul process, as shown below:
- Dismantle equipment and record relevant data.
- Clean and inspect components for wear.
- Identify and diagnose the extent of repairs and refurbishment.
- Produce engineering report and rectification quotation.
- Purchase OEM spares where appropriate and conduct repairs.
- Perform hydrostatic testing where appropriate.
- Reassemble, including repainting to required specifications.
- Make final quality checks.
- Dispatch to the customer for installation.
As suggested by our group company name, we are experts in all types of pump overhauls.
Typical parts that wear and will need replacing include o-rings, seals, bearings and impellers. These can either be replaced with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts or can be reverse engineered on older equipment where parts have been discontinued.
Below is a list of the most common pump types we monitor, service and maintain:
- Air Operated Diaphragm (AOD) Pumps
- Borehole Pumps
- Centrifugal Pump
- Chilled Water Pumps
- Cold Water Booster Pumps
- End Suction Pumps
- Fire Pumps
- Long & Short Couple Pumps
- Low Temperature Hot Water (LTHW) Pumps
- Multistage Pumps
- Positive Displacement Pumps
- Split Case Centrifugal Pumps
- Submersible – Foul & Surface Water
- Vacuum Pumps
In order to provide a complete service, as part of an industrial or HVAC project, we are able to provide electric motor overhauls.
Following the initial equipment inspection, worn or defective parts and components can be diagnosed then repaired or replaced. Bearing replacements are the most common service featured on motor overhauls.
We can overhaul a full range of motors, including the following:
- AC & DC electric motors
- Brake motors
- Gear motors
- Hoist motors
- Permanent magnet motors
- Special purpose motors
- Spindle motors
- Synchronous motors
Over a period of time, dependent upon the application and industry, industrial fans can experience erosion and corrosion. This can cause them to become unbalanced, resulting in excessive vibration, which can lead to the need for new equipment if not resolved.
Common repairs or replacements undertaken during an industrial fan overhaul might include the following: impellers, casings, shafts, bearings, vee Belt Drives, motors and guards. Part of our process includes dynamic balancing.
The efficiency and high performance of Air Handling Units and other ventilation systems are essential, particularly in critical environments. AHU’s are a major and expensive piece of capital plant equipment, so it’s important to avoid it falling into disrepair through inadequate maintenance. An overhaul can ensure your AHU is kept operational and in optimum condition. Refurbishment of these units can extend their life.
During overhauls, our engineers will be able to identify improvements that can be made to your equipment to save money or enhance performance. Upgrades to older equipment can make significant savings in energy costs. Filter grades can also be updated during overhauls, to increase filtration capability in locations with high levels of air pollution or prone to dangerous airborne particles.
The range of AHU components that may typically be replaced during AHU overhauls may include any of the following, as required: pressure gauges, heating coils, cooling coils, heat recovery devices, control dampers, actuators, humidifiers, bearings, anti-vibration mounts, flexible connections and filters.
Please contact us to discuss any of your equipment that isn’t performing as it should.
New Equipment Procurement and Spare Parts
Choose the right partner
Due to varying brands and the potential changes in availability of equipment in the industry, it’s important that your chosen procurement partner has access to a sufficient range of supply chains to provide the right solutions for your needs. Due to being well-established in the industry, we’ll identify the equipment and spare parts available on the market that will provide the best solution for you. And, because of our buying power and long-standing supplier relationships, we can attain them as quickly as possible, with favourable terms.
Renewing equipment and components
Replacing underperforming older equipment that’s beyond economical repair with newer, more technically advanced equipment can save a considerable amount of money in energy costs, not to mention increased reliability and consequently a reduction in downtime. An important factor when downtime could cause your organisation several thousands of pounds per hour (or even per minute!) in lost revenue. Upgrading old equipment with new parts can achieve a similar result.
Please contact us for a quotation on your new equipment and spare parts needs.
Many large scale projects that we undertake are related to both industrial and FM applications. These can involve a wide range of equipment and component replacement such as valves, expansion bellows, mechanical seals and cold water booster pumps. Maintenance and servicing will uncover any issues and protect your mechanical plant assets.
Protect and extend the life of your existing industrial plant assets through PPM (planned preventative maintenance). Scheduled maintenance, such as sump pump servicing, as well as the procurement of new equipment and spare parts will avoid expensive industrial breakdowns and unplanned loss of services or production.
Please contact us for a quotation on your new equipment and spare parts needs.
If you need repairs, maintenance or site surveys to be carried out at your premises, our group can facilitate that for you. Our engineers are able to travel throughout the UK to provide you with a full range of onsite services. When working with the Pumptec Services Group, you’ll benefit from having access to both industrial and HVAC engineers, who work together as one team to deliver the solution that adds the most value to your organisation.
We always aim to carry out repairs as close to the point of failure as possible. This minimises the risk to your business from equipment failure and downtime. Where the equipment needs a more in-depth overhaul or when it is assessed that our more specialist capabilities will be more appropriate, we will bring the item to our service centre.
Committed to safe working
Our engineers are fully health and safety trained as well as being experienced in operating in specialist environments, such as confined spaces and critical environments.
By overhauling your AHUs and fans, we can ensure your capital plant equipment continues to operate efficiently instead of falling into disrepair. Lack of planned maintenance can cause them to eventually fail completely and need to be replaced, at great expense.
Overhauls of your AHUs and fans minimises disruption, both to your organisation and your workforce. It can also avoid external associated costs, particularly when there are logistical issues and transport costs involved in delivering and positioning larger replacement units. Overhauls can improve equipment performance, workforce health and safety, as well leading to a reduction in running costs.
Typical work conducted during overhauls can include:
- Replacement or upgrade of filters
- Repair and repainting of corroded metalwork
- Add new pressure gauges
- Replace worn components such as bearings, fans, motors, anti-vibration mounts and flexible connections
- Repair or replace leaking heating or cooling coils
- Replace damaged or failed heat recovery devices
- Repair of replace control dampers and actuators
- Fix incorrect trapping to stop cooling coil drain pans from overflowing
We deal with all types of fans, across all manufacturers, including centrifugal, multivane, paddle, axial and bifurcated.
To keep your systems and equipment running in the way in which they were originally intended, it’s essential that OEM parts are performing correctly. Through building good, long-standing relationships with our manufacturer partners, we’re able to gain information quickly, then provide you with outstanding support when faced with problems that less-experienced contractors may struggle to resolve. This may include warranty issues uncovered during industrial maintenance, cold room maintenance or PPM.
If your industrial plant and associated systems are experiencing low performance, increased energy usage or suffering from intermittent technical issues, you could benefit from our industrial diagnostics and consultation services.
By recognising and diagnosing small faults and problems that could lead to equipment fails, we will help you avoid unplanned shutdowns, reduced productivity and unexpected capex investments. The many years of large scale industrial experience held by our engineers at Pumptec Services Group enable us to diagnose problems quickly, report our findings and propose sensible solutions that will provide the most value to your organisation.
We can repair, service, maintain and replace cold water booster units. Cold water booster units should be serviced annually. Improper or infrequent maintenance of booster sets can invalidate insurance and present health and safety risks for clients and employees. If a cold water booster unit fails, it will prevent critical systems from functioning, resulting in a temporary shutdown in your operations.
Pressure systems require regular inspections in order to identify problems such as damaged parts, corrosion, leaks and a reduction in system performance. Our engineers will identify any worn or failing parts and replace them, which may include filters, fittings, flow switches, sensors, pumps, penetrators, pressure gauges, valves and seals.
Our experience enables us to work quickly and work with you to minimise downtime and limit any inconvenience caused to operations and your workforce.
