No doubt about it, replacing your current centrifuge with a new machine is a large undertaking. Not only does it involve the capital investment of new equipment, it also typically involves reconfiguring feed lines and replacing your baseplate. And in case you're not familiar, replacing a centrifuge baseplate is a big job all on its own. It involves breaking the existing one out, pouring fresh concrete, and waiting for the curing process. And that all comes after you've worked out the details on the business end. Luckily, there's a way to skip this entire process while getting the equipment upgrade you need.
Remanufactured centrifuges have numerous distinct advantages over a refurbished or new one. For starters, a remanufactured centrifuge is less expensive than new and better than used. When you hear about used, refurbished, or reconditioned centrifuges, those are different from remanufactured. And the difference is in the details.
One of the biggest obstacles our customers face is time. There never seems to be enough of it. And in the case of centrifuge failure, getting your current machine operational or replacing it with a new one is an urgent task. Every moment that a machine is down can lead to lost production, decreased plant efficiency, and wasted employee time.
Luckily, we've developed a way to get facilities back to production-ready much faster than the OEMs can provide a new centrifuge. Our Quick Delivery Program reduces the wait time for facilities in need of high-quality centrifuge equipment. We can deliver a remanufactured centrifuge that fits your current layout in weeks instead of months.
When you're familiar with centrifuges, you'll see they are simple machines. They do one job, and when they're properly outfitted and operated, they do that one job extremely well. Our training and consulting services educate owners and operators on how to successfully run their equipment and optimize their separation process.
It’s pretty common for customers and clients to ask me how long their centrifuges should last, and the truth is, the answer depends on how well they’re maintained. The length of time a centrifuge remains operational is significantly impacted by whether or not it receives those major and minor services that are recommended by manufacturers (and in some instances required by insurance companies or industry guidelines).
