2014-04-04 16:15:59 - The importance of periodic humidifier maintenance should not be underestimated if the product life cycle is to be maximised and the system is to operate at optimum performance.
With more companies now undertaking maintenance on Humidifiers without appropriate training CAREL UK SERVICE are frequently been called upon to rectify poor installations and incorrect Maintenance. Although this leads to increased costs to the end user and facility management companies what is more concerning to manufacturers such as CAREL are the health risks associated with it. The importance of Humidification maintenance is often overlooked compared to air conditioning systems or other environmental equipment; however do this at your peril as the use of water in any system brings with it a whole host of legislation and more importantly risk to health if not considered properly.
One of the main reasons encountered by CAREL UK for overlooking Humidification Maintenance is a lack
of understanding. Although the main checks and consumable replacements seem straight forward what some engineers do not realise is that much of the Humidifiers maintenance revolves around testing, disinfection, analysis, control parameters and vital spares replacements.
The Key to controlling planned maintenance costs is correctly estimating maintenance frequency by determining how many service visits, consumables and spares are required over an annual period. As maintenance levels will vary from Humidifier type and location, engineers unfamiliar with the system have in the past hugely underestimated the annual maintenance requirement. This in turn has led to costing end users and facilities companies both in downtime and increased risk of contaminating of the system.
Failure to carry out the correct checks and procedures in the past has led to complete product failures, increased servicing, costly rectification work and the detection of harmful bacteria in the system.
To address this issue and support Facility Managers CAREL UK are embarking on a major expansion project of their Service and Maintenance division. Customers can now benefit from optimized efficiency, regulation compliance, extended life system and cost savings directly from the Manufacturer. CAREL UK will now also be offering a full range of Planned Maintenance Packages as well as product training by our Field Service Engineers on the various checks and procedures on the relevant humidifiers.
Over 40 years CAREL has built a solid global business in which our customers have come to trust in our products, our people and our service.
