HOW THE RECONDITIONING OF FOOD PUMPS AND EQUIPMENT WORKS?

Rotors

The reconditioning includes:

  1. an expertise and a wear control in order to verify the technical feasibility
  2. the proposal of a quote at 50% of the price of a new rotor
  3. de-chroming, material refilling if necessary, re-chroming, polishing, supply and assembly of rings, as well as dimensional control
  4. the reshipment of the reconditioned equipment</p>

Mechanical seals

The reconditioning includes:

  1. the cleaning, the disassembly, and the complete expertise for each component
  2. the proposal of a quote at 20% of the price of a new gasket
  3. the replacement of seals and springs

HOW THE IMPROVEMENT OF FOOD PUMPS AND EQUIPMENT WORKS?

Rotors

To improve your pumps and equipment, there are several solutions to combat corrosion, abrasion or both combined: chromium oxide, tungsten carbide....

Steps

  1. Analysis of technical parts and definition of customer needs
  2. Proposal of a feasibility study. On a used rotor, a coating modification is possible.
  3. If the improvement is feasible, our teams proceed with pickling, material reloading, specific coating (tungsten carbide, chromium oxide, etc.), polishing and dimensional control
  4. Shipment of material back to the customer.

Motorizations

Steps

1- A feasibility study is proposed on several technical points, namely:

  • energy consumption calculations,
  • optimization in relation to current standards (IE3, IE4, IE5),
  • mechanical adaptations and parameterizations.

2- A detailed quotation is provided for the improvements.

3- The modifications are then carried out on site or at the PCM Service Center with:

  • test after modifications made,
  • parameterization of the instructions.

4- PCM guarantees the start-up of your equipment. Our teams provide you the technical documentation as well as nomenclature.
