TECHNICAL SUPPORT / SERVICE
On-Line / Telephone Support
Within the warranty period, LOOMIS PRODUCTS offers free online/telephone support for minor technical issues. Typically, problems can be diagnosed and resolved without an on-site service call. In many cases, LOOMIS PRODUCTS has been able to provide same-day response and resolution to various customer issues (depending on the nature and severity of the problem). For out of warranty support and service, LOOMIS PRODUCTS offers scheduled maintenance programs for our customers.
In severe cases, LOOMIS PRODUCTS has the capability to provide on-site service within 24 to 48 hours to any customer around the world. When these situations occur, we ensure that our customers get the best possible response time to minimize costly downtime.
NDE - NON DESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION (NDT)
The complexity and expense of modern machinery dictate the use of testing procedures that ensure long life as well as maximum reliability.
Non Destructive Examination (NDE) is used in equipment maintenance programs to avoid loss of
the property, person, and profitability.
The procedure is a means of locating and determining the severity of discontinuities (flaws) that may
occur in a part.
All LOOMIS PRODUCTS pressure vessels are tested to ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) or
PED (Pressure Equipment Directive - Europe) Codes at our manufacturing facility before
commissioning and shipment.
Pressure vessels can also be tested and approved to GOSH Codes (Russia) or through TUV (Asia)
LOOMIS PRODUCTS recommends that all pressure vessels be inspected annually for cracks and other possible discontinuities.
Many international codes and insurance companies require annual testing.
Our NDE testing staff is certified to SNT-TC-1A, CP-189, and MIL-STD-410 requirements.
Customers will receive the following on completion of NDE:
Pressure Vessel General Information Report
Non Destructive Examination Report
Conclusions & Recommendations documentation
Sketches, Photos, and/or other attachments (where required)
SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS (SMP)
LOOMIS PRODUCTS offers Scheduled Maintenance Programs (SMP) to our Customers to ensure greater longevity of their machines, as well as minimize possible downtime.
SMPs are tailored to each Customer’s individual requirements and machine specifications so as to provide the best possible protection.
Our Service Technicians perform extensive visual and physical inspections to ensure that the Customer’s equipment is operating at optimum levels.
For Isostatic Presses, Loomis SMPs include NDE (Non Destructive Examination) of pressure vessels to ensure continued safe operation of our equipment.
As part of a preventative maintenance regimen, we replace components that are typically prone to normal wear & tear; maintain optimum performance and drastically reduce potential downtime.
SPARE PARTS SUPPLY
LOOMIS PRODUCTS includes a Spare Parts List as part of the Operators Manual that is provided with every machine we build. Our recommended Spare Parts List covers critical components that we believe should be kept on hand (at the Customer’s facility) to service equipment quicker and minimize downtime.
While LOOMIS PRODUCTS does inventory many common parts, it is imperative that Customers follow the recommendations contained within the manual.
Spare parts available from LOOMIS PRODUCTS include high-pressure components, hydraulic fittings, hoses, and electrical controls...as well as replacement Polyurethane Tooling.
It is not uncommon for us to learn of LOOMIS PRODUCTS equipment that is still in operation after decades of service. For many production facilities, reconditioning of an older press can be an attractive and cost-effective method to extend the life of their machine.
Your older press may still be suitable for your current production needs (but perhaps just needs upgrading), LOOMIS PRODUCTS can inspect and quote the full reconditioning of the press to optimize your manufacturing capabilities.
There may be situations where an older piece of equipment just cannot be upgraded economically to meet your requirements (insufficient control, hydraulic, or mechanical functionality); an upgrade to a new press may be required.
LOOMIS PRODUCTS is always willing to accept one of its older presses as a trade-in towards a new press.
