Five Keys to a Successful Outage

March 17, 2018

How can you keep your outage on schedule and under budget? 

Automation Service can help you unlock the five secrets to a successful plant outage with Instant Turnaround™. 

Taking your plant’s process offline for maintenance can be expensive in terms of:

  • Lost production
  • Direct costs for labor
  • Tools and materials
  • Heavy equipment used to execute the turnaround

Automation Service Instant Turnaround eliminates schedule and budget risks, reduces costs, offers a better warranty versus repair, and improves overall productivity throughout the process. Click here to read more about the benefits of Instant Turnaround, or contact us to get started.

Five keys to outage success:

Key 1: Budget Certainty

Get budget certainty for your remanufactured Fisher­­® control valves and remanufactured Rosemount® transmitters. With Instant Turnaround, you know up front what your costs are, and there are no hidden surprises like there can be with repairs. You can count on what we quote up front to be your final cost.

Key 2: Schedule Certainty

We will quote you a delivery date up front to eliminate the guessing game. On top of that, with the remanufactured Fisher control valves and instrumentation arriving ahead of the turnaround date, you have no delayed schedules. That means you can have crews and equipment available and can install the valves on time.

Key 3: Enhanced Productivity

With Instant Turnaround, the removal and installation of the valves happen on site at one time. Our goal is to get your plant back online as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Key 4: Quality Performance

All of our remanufactured valves are hydrostatic pressure tested to ensure body integrity, and they are seat leak tested to make sure the valve meets published OEM leak rate tolerances. Each valve will come with a test result certificate. You’ll also get a two-year service warranty from the date of installation.

Key 5: Cost Savings

Instant Turnaround can reduce labor and heavy equipment cost because you can remove and install the valves on site at one time. We’ll even help you recycle your cores for credit that you can use toward your remanufactured replacements. On top of that, average material costs are 30% less on remanufactured valves and instrumentation compared to repairs.
