Investments in systems and equipment are based on an assumed level of performance and expected lifetime of operation. As a result of fatigue, maintenance practices, unforeseen events, failure or other operational reasons, equipment deterioration may lead to early replacement or repair. GEA Process Engineering Inc. (GEA Liquid Processing) provide full structural, mechanical, electrical, control and system audits to verify life expectancy and life extension options and complete annual inspections if required.
Improved plant flexibility and the protection of your existing investments has been one of our key objectives for many years. The refurbishment of critical plant components can often contribute to improved plant performance, minimize the use of costly resources, such as energy and reduce waste of valuable ingredients. Improvements of this type also help to preserve the environment and support the need to meet increasingly stringent regulations.
The retrofit project teams at GEA Liquid Processing (GEA Process Engineering Inc.) partner with your staff to implement the most efficient, cost-effective solution for your process plant or system. Our unmatched experience ensures that we can complete it without jeopardizing normal plant operation - or at least a minimal downtime.
