Summer of Service – Startup & Commissioning

 

 

The importance of the startup and commissioning phase of a plant is apparent given time constraints, pressure to reduce cost and increase profit, reductions in plant staff and increase in the need for shorter project implementation times. Proper commissioning of your process instrumentation is also essential. During the start-up phase, time, resource availability and access to specific skills could become critical factors.

On-Site Calibration

 

 

In any regulated industry, operational excellence is at the top of the list. It means running programs that increase plant availability and product quality while decreasing the risk of product recalls. Your competitive edge depends on maintaining and continuously improving production efficiency. Calibrating close to operating conditions and on-site service increase process availability.

Summer of Service: Field Service

 

 

When considering the services you need, what springs to mind?

If you work in maintenance, reactivity and efficiency are probably your key words in regard to service related issues. If you are looking for services to complement your activity, expertise and proximity may be the top criteria. If you are involved in management, you probably expect a great deal more: solutions above and beyond maintenance, management capabilities, outsourcing options, and ways and means to increase productivity and competitiveness.

Lift Station Solutions – Surge Protection

Previously on Lift Station Solutions we discussed the need for proper maintenance. Proper maintenance begins with a thoroughly designed lift station, especially when it comes to protecting the entire system from natural phenomena. Surge protection is a critical piece of any process and should not be overlooked. Proper surge protection can mean saving you from costly power surges, failures, lightning strikes, etc. These natural, and too often, occurrences can wreak havoc on your lift station. Surge protection should be on each incoming and outgoing electrical line, radio, and control piece. It should also be located on each individual instrument when and where applicable. Failure to protect against natural surge issues can be costly to the environment due to potential pressure surge and the utilities’ bottom line from replacing instrumentation and other necessary equipment.

 

You can see from the below list of solutions, there is a lot of area to cover  in regard to surge protection at a lift station!
