The superior quality of SPX FLOW's products and services lay the foundations for customers to test, develop and perfect the critical manufacturing processes needed to support a host of technically sound commercial applications.
Regular maintenance is essential to extend product lifecycles by preventing the negative effects of wear and tear such as the accumulation of water vapor in a compressed air system. SPX FLOW Technology’s Etten-Leur facility provides an array of services by a team consisting of well trained and experienced service engineers, each of whom is certified for “Refrigerant installations Category I”. This means that they are also capable of maintaining, repairing and modifying other common brands and types of gas- & air treatment systems and atmospheric air dryers alongside its own brands:
This versatility saves you time and money. Furthermore, each maintenance contract is fully tailored to meet the specific needs and specifications of your equipment; for example, in the form of an inspection-only contract; a service contract, including periodic replacement parts; or an all-in contract that covers the complete care of your system. The SPX Flow Technology Etten-Leur facility ensures that you can always be confident that your systems are operating at peak performance.
SPX FLOW provides all the necessary spares and components for your system. We guarantee the availability of every part of your system for at least the average lifetime of the system itself. In principle all the components used in our own brands are always in stock, and the parts for other brands can usually be delivered without any problems.
Start-up, (pre-)commissioning and training
SPX FLOW engineers and technicians can start up your newly bought SPX Flow compressed air dryer and make sure the settings are custom made to your wishes and needs. SPX FLOW is also able to train your operators to make sure the dryer is used and maintained properly, helping to maximize the lifespan of the dryer and the best possible compressed air quality.
SPX FLOW engineers and technicians can upgrade your compressed air dryer to the current level of technology. Be it an upgrade of valves, change of heater or an upgrade of your control panel, SPX Flow has the solution at hand. Together we can find the best possible solution for your situation and secure the use and reliability of your compressed air installation, for years to come.
If you need a compressed air dryer for a limited period of time, you can contact SPX FLOW for a rental unit. SPX FLOW has several units in our fleet that will suit your specific need. Hoses, gaskets, reducers and couplings come with each dryer. Our service engineers connect the rental dryers and make sure they are set to meet your needs.
Even in situations where leaks do not present security risks, they could still incur unwanted extra costs. After all, at a pressure level of 7 bar and 4,000 operating hours, a 1 mm2-leak already costs approximately € 320 per annum. Our service engineers use ultrasonic measurement systems to check your compressed air system for leaks and will advise you on how to earn more money directly simply by repairing leaks.
Analysis of adsorption capacity
(Compressed) air dryer adsorbents are often rejected based on age. SPX FLOW has access to its own modern laboratory that can accurately determine the capacity of your desiccant within 48 hours. Amongst many other thing, hardness of the desiccant is analyzed in a crush test, as this is an important parameter that reveals potential ageing of the material. Premature replacement of desiccants put unnecessary negative pressure on your operating costs, while late replacement has undesirable consequences for the life of your filter elements, the failure sensitivity of your compressed air, and your measurement and control equipment.
Disposal of used adsorbents
The desiccants from your compressed air dryers are often contaminated with traces of oil from compressors and/or contaminants sucked in from the ambient air. This means that the used desiccants cannot be disposed of and processed as normal waste. SPX FLOW takes care of the removal and processing of used desiccants under a special, existing waste stream number and provides you with an indemnity certificate.
