Screens: Make the old new again and save money
As the costs of doing business keep rising, the thought of purchasing new vibrating screen equipment may seem out of the question this year. However, aggregate and mining producers have another option. Today, many companies find that the best way to stretch their dollar while upgrading operations comes by refurbishing equipment.
With just four simple steps, update old screening equipment with all the bells and whistles of new technology, at nearly half the cost of purchasing a new machine. Here is how it works:
First, determine whether to rebuild or replace your screen’s components. A screening specialist will visit your facility and inspect all critical components, giving a recommendation of parts that can be rebuilt or replaced.
Following the inspection, work with your manufacturer to install re-engineered parts. Incorporating newer components improves screening performance without the expense of buying new ones.
Let certified technicians test your refurbished vibrating screen using vibration analysis technology. This ensures all components work like new and that the equipment runs to OEM standards.
4 Engineered screening studies:
Welcome a technician to visit your facility to evaluate your entire screening process from start to finish. A complete screening consultation results in a smoother, more efficient, and typically, more profitable, operation.
So, when it comes time to upgrade your equipment, consider refurbishment rather than buying new. By doing so, you will receive an even better return on investment (ROI). CMJ
