Regular service of control valves, actuators, pilot valves, positioners and steam PRV systems is important to save money, avoid downtime and maintain HVAC and industrial steam and fluid processes.
Emergencies are very expense for facilities. You have to call contractors, service providers and other constituents in unexpectedly. Not to mention you can lose revenue in an industrial facility, lose critical systems in a hospital or impact your customers business in a commercial building.
Field Service allows you to repair & service equipment in-line. This saves you time and a significant amount of money and hassle if you are required to remove the valve from the piping.
Fehlinger offers preventative maintenance services which we call the “Survey & Inspect”. The Survey & Inspect maintenance program is not a “look over”. It is a comprehensive multi-hour process. We analyze all facets of your system. This includes control valves, relevant isolation valves, controls, regulators, compressors and pneumatic or electronic processes. Do you have to wait until the steam, high temperature hot water or other medium is running at higher pressures? No, our field service staff can conduct a survey & inspect anytime.
Capital equipment is long-lived, why undertake preventative maintenance?
Semi-instantaneous hot water heaters essentially use a heat exchanger instead of a holding tank. The heat exchanger rapidly heats the water so that there is no need to store it.
There are several advantages of semi-instantaneous hot water heaters:
The heaters can use different heat exchangers such a plate & frame heat exchanger, shell & tube and a helix-type which looks like a coil. Shell & tube style heat exchangers have historical been used in the NY Metro area commercial building and healthcare markets. However, there are some advantages to other types.
The plate & frame semi-instantaneous hot water heater is significantly more efficient than the shell & tube. It is up to 5x more efficient due to the plate surface area and are much smaller than a shell & tube with the same capabilities.
Fehlinger carries Spirax Sarco’s Easiheat plate & frame semi-instantaneous hot water heater. We can repair the controls and temperature regulator on the skid package and work with one our partners if the heat exchanger needs to be cleaned or more plates inserted.
Leslie Controls and Graham Corporation both sell a “helix” type hot water heater. The Leslie is referred to the Constantemp and the Graham’s is called the Rediheat as sold through Spirax.
Fehlinger keeps in stock heat exchanger coils and blend valves. We can immediately repair your Graham or Leslie Control semi-instantaneous water heaters.
