Save Time & Money with Reconditioned Heat Exchangers

Checking for quality at a microbrewery, which is one product category that relies on heat exchangers.

When you need to replace a heat exchanger or add an additional unit to your line, time is of the essence. Buying a brand new heat exchanger is one option, but depending on your situation, it may not be the best choice. A reconditioned heat exchanger could save you some money, and it could also be up and running faster.

Of course, with so much riding on your production line, you want to make sure you’re getting a quality piece of equipment. In this post, we’ll show you what to look for and what questions to ask when choosing a reconditioned heat exchanger.

What does a High Quality Reconditioned Heat Exchanger Look Like?

Believe it or not, our reconditioned heat exchangers look a heck of a lot like brand-new heat exchangers. That’s because we outfit them with new plate packs purchased direct from the manufacturer.

Ramp Up Faster with a Reconditioned Filling Machine

Reconditioned Filling Machine Product Example

When your company lands an order with a national big box retailer, you might need to ramp up production faster than you can realistically manage without making additions to your line. Problem is, adding new pumps, tanks, heat exchangers or filling machines doesn’t just require money – it requires time. And time is something you simply may not have.

Buying a new rotary filling machine could take anywhere from six to eight months to get up and running. If you have that kind of time, and you don’t mind paying full price for a new filler, this is a perfectly fine option for you. But, if you need to increase production capacity faster, a reconditioned bottle filling machine can be operational in as little as three months, and cost you a fraction of buying new.

How to Identify a High-Quality Reconditioned Centrifugal Pump

When it comes to replacing a centrifugal pump, or adding an additional pump to your existing production line, you don’t just want the cheapest possible product. You want a pump you can trust. After all, if your centrifugal pump stops working, your product stops moving. And, if your product stops moving, you can’t fill your orders as promised.

Obviously, your pumps are not a place to cut corners. However, that doesn’t mean you necessarily need to incur the expense of a brand-new centrifugal pump every time you want to increase production or replace a worn-out part. In this post, you’ll learn why a high-quality, used centrifugal pump could be every bit as reliable as a new pump – and for a fraction of the price.
