It is vital to the efficient and trouble free running of your production process to have your vacuum pump system regularly serviced so that any problems can be picked up before a part fails or efficiency is impacted. These devices work on the same principle as hydraulic pumps and have very tight tolerances and precision seals that can be easily damaged if maintenance is not kept up.
The Right Team
The need for specific parts make it vital that the company you choose has the experienced personnel that know the vacuum pmp system you are using and which parts are most prone to failure or degradation. This can save a fortune in repair costs and down time by completely understanding the right preventative maintenance requirements so that early signs of wear or failure are picked up and dealt with before they become a problem.
Generally pump systems are expensive and have a long lifetime when maintained properly. If your maintenance company has a large stock of vacuum and hydraulic pump parts then going forward you can be certain that you will have the parts on hand quickly if a problem develops or an unexpected failure happens.
Any vital piece equipment needs fast and efficient service and the company you select needs to have the resources to respond quickly when you need them. If you have to shut down operations for maintenance then punctuality and the ability to work out of standard hours can be vital. If you operate around the clock then it is important to have a company that has personnel available any time you have a problem.
Upgrades, Refurbishments and Repairs
The complexity and tight tolerances of vacuum pumps mean that a major failure or refurbishment will need to be done in the workshop. Does the company have the ability to exchange pumps, upgrade to newer models or to refurbish the current pumps and have them back in service quickly? These are important questions that will be vital down the track and are important to know so that when you need these major works you can plan accordingly.
