Spare And Replacement Parts For Oxidizers
Did you know that some air permits require companies to keep critical oxidizer spare parts on site in order to remain in compliance?
Having the necessary spare parts readily available is a prerequisite for minimizing the cost and inconvenience of system shutdowns. At Anguil, we have put a lot of effort into developing replacement part plans to support oxidizers built by us as well as other manufacturers. We take inventory of your oxidizer needs and recommend what spare parts would be critical, what parts are recommended, and which ones should be ordered as needed. We will work with you in developing a sensible approach that works within your budget.
In order to assist you with component selection, we categorize spare parts into various categories based on their priority level. The four levels are defined as Convenience, Critical, Recommended, or When Needed.
Convenience - Consumables that are not critical to operation of the system but are needed for documenting the operating conditions; chart recorder paper and replacement pens are some examples.
Critical - Parts that are considered vital to system operation. These are often high use or high wear items such as a poppet valve actuator. Critical parts can also include items that are crucial for oxidizer control such as thermocouples, flow sensors, and damper actuators. Other components at the critical level are ones that require frequent maintenance such as spark igniters that are subject to cracking.
Recommended - Considered important to system uptime, recommended spare parts are tied to a critical operation or safety feature. These items are not typically known to fail, however they cannot safely be bypassed if they do. Air proving switches, pressure transmitters and fuel train components fit into this category.
When Needed - Components that are unlikely to fail or not generally critical to system operation. These parts would only be ordered as replacements when the need arises.
