Fives proposes equipment upgrades, modernization* and refurbishment directly on site for its clients’ convenience.
These solutions are available for all types of equipment. They are particularly suited to:
A comprehensive electrical package that optimizes operations, performance and energy efficiency of batch centrifugal machines. We can, for example, replace obsolete parts and/or upgrade from DC to AC technology, and add security devices. We also offer an upgrade of the Cail & Fletcher ZUKA® batch centrifugal, adding a second discharger while keeping the same electrical drive. This optimizes its performance by two additional cycles/hour.
We offer turnkey rehabilitation on site, including upgrades to existing mills with self-aligned bearings, headstock repairs and headstock boring rebuilds. This reduces lubricant consumption by 50% when combined with a sealing system. It also increases the performance and extends the lifetime of equipment by decades.
