No matter what type of wet process system you have, there are a number of benefits that come with retrofitting. We narrowed it down to just 5 that we want to share with you today.
Keep reading to find out more about why you should retrofit your wet process equipment.
1. Improve Machine Reliability
New technology is designed to help improve reliability and overall function of machines. Therefore, to take advantage of those advances, you need to make the decision to retrofit your wet process systems.
This is especially true when making the change from wet seals to dry gas seals. Since dry gas seals are non-contacting, there’s no seal wear. This keeps your machines running more efficiently and for much longer.
2. Meet OSHA Regulations
When using various chemicals during processing, there is always the risk of contamination which can harm workers. This is why OSHA has regulations in place for every part of the manufacturing process.
These regulations are designed to keep everyone safe. Many older seals and other machine parts no longer meet the standards set by OSHA. The only way to meet those standards without replacing all of your machinery is to retrofit the parts that need to be replaced.
3. Lower Emissions
With modern parts in place, your machinery will have significantly fewer emissions than before. This allows you to operate a safer environment and save money since gas isn’t being wasted.
4. More Maintainable
Once your wet process systems are retrofitted, you can more easily maintain them. For one thing, they’ll be new which means it’ll be some time before you have to worry about any issues that arise from repeated use.
These newer systems are also more maintainable since they are designed to be that way. Not only that, but more repairmen are now only trained on the newer systems so it’s getting hard to find someone who can fix an outdated system.
5. Save Money
As we previously mentioned, retrofitting your wet process system can save your company money. The two biggest ways are by reducing both operating and maintenance costs.
Operating costs will decrease after you have your system retrofitted due to energy savings, which allows you to save money and improve your profit margin.
Maintenance costs will also be reduced since newer seals and parts are easier to maintain. Additionally, you don’t have to waste your valuable time looking for a mechanic that works with older machinery.
