Pre-Shutdown Surveys

Pre-Shutdown Surveys

These multi-tech surveys are undertaken up to three months before the planned shutdown where our consultant visits the site, surveys the machinery, identifies machines which are satisfactory and those with problems. Problematic equipment is analysed to identify the root cause and recommendations made to rectify it. This survey allows considerable reduction in cost by avoiding opening healthy machines for refurbishment, concentrating resources on those which require repair.
