Star Refrigeration says it is using the latest smart engineering technology and modern tooling techniques to take its aftercare service way beyond traditional planned, preventative maintenance (PPM).
Across nine UK branches, Star says its aftercare team is able to deliver a more proactive and predictive service, thanks to the modern engineering tools and techniques that are central to today’s plant maintenance programmes.
Regional manager – South East, John Simpson, says: “The technology behind modern tooling has advanced in leaps and bounds over the past five years. Leading maintenance companies have invested in sophisticated technology that allows engineers to perform a range of highly valuable diagnostic tests on site.
“Our team of over100 field engineers are now equipped to undertake services previously deemed specialist, such as vibration analysis, thermographic scanning and laser alignment. High tech electronic gauges and diagnostic devices linked to transducers, sensors and probes, are now an essential feature in our refrigeration engineer’s toolbox.
“Modern tooling techniques enable early diagnosis of potential issues to help minimise plant downtime, whilst remote monitoring ensures minimal disturbance and reduces the need for costly call outs. Together this increases efficiency and generates significant cost savings for customers.”
