Four reasons to have your pump maintained by ACE+
Save on running costs $$
A free ACE+ assessment of your pump’s operational effectiveness can lead to significant reductions in running costs and the energy requirements of your building. Inefficient pumps can be costing your building $1,000’s in unnecessary power bills.
Stay informed on your pump condition
ACE+ provide a full service report with photographs and test results after every visit enabling you to be across your pump’s condition and enables you to make informed decisions on the need for any future repairs or expenditure.
Protect your building assets
An ACE+ planned maintenance programme for your pumps keeps them in good condition, reduces the risk of future breakdown and shows your building owner that you are professionally maintaining their assets.
Keep your pumps running
ACE+ operate 24/7/365 in the event of breakdown. We can also install protection for pumps and monitors/alarms to help identify problems and rectify them before they become emergencies.
A 10KW Pump running continuously costs $70,000-80,000 per year to run. It is critical that your pump is not only operating correctly, but that it is the correct type of pump for your requirements.
The ACE+ hydraulic experts will assess both your pump’s operational effectiveness and evaluate the size to determine it is the correct pump for the situation.
We make sure machines are properly shut-down before performing your maintenance and/or systems check. Proper isolation is important not only for electrical systems, but for hydraulic systems as well.
Determine Maintenance Frequency
ACE+ consult the original manufacturer’s guidelines and use common sense when deciding the time and frequency of servicing. Will lines or pumps have to be disabled? How big of a disturbance will this be to your operations?
1. Check that mounting points are secure
2. Inspect the mechanical seal and packing
3. Inspect the pump flanges for leaks
4. Inspect the couplings
5. Inspect and clean filters
Observation is key
We get to know your system and make a point to observe your pump while it is still running. We make note of leaks, unusual sounds or vibrations and unusual odours.
