Within industrial and manufacturing operations, gradual degradation of equipment and instrumentation, as well as the processes that monitor associated hardware, is inevitable. In critical operations, this degradation or misalignment of either hardware or processes can not only be costly to repair but endanger the lives of both employees and consumer end users.
Maintenance and validation services at Telstar also ensures our clients’ compliance with regulatory bodies through the collection and evaluation of data from the process design stage throughout the production cycle.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) maintenance and validation is both data and process-centric and typically involves:
• An update of the complete database of inventory and equipment
• A check of the central site computer, which monitors facilities to ensure no system issues are present
• Repair of any faulty equipment that is found
• Creation of a weekly system performance report, including problems encountered
• Functional checks of each piece of equipment in the system
• Visual and functional checks of all remote and master site equipment
• Site and equipment cleaning to prevent build-up of dust, vermin, etc.
• Test and measurement of the main operating parameters of all equipment, including indicators such as voltages, currents, frequencies, inputs, outputs, levels, and noise
• Complete and up-to-date inventory of spare parts
• Documentation of any changes made to the system due to repair
ELECTRICAL CONTROLS MAINTENANCE
Telstar offers regular, preventive maintenance of terminals, control panels, wiring, circuitry and the programs that connect the plant’s electrical interfaces to ensure maximized efficiency in operations. While some electrical equipment and controls degradation may be unavoidable over time, the onset can be delayed through proper maintenance and frequent validation checks.
Precision instruments are often subjected to extreme environments including heat, vibration, and/or substances, which can alter function and/or corrupt a related process. For this reason, instrumentation maintenance, like electrical controls maintenance, should be preventative. Subtle changes (e.g., load charges or additions, circuit alterations) can affect the accuracy of instrumentation, leading to inaccurate record-keeping, documentation and process control.
Telstar provides both the physical and evaluative services related to this form of core maintenance as well as detailed and compliance-based documentation for clients.
GAS DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE
In an industrial or commercial setting, due to the presence of various chemicals and other hazardous materials, gas detection and alarm systems maintenance is critical.
Telstar’s experienced and certified technicians test the performance of your gas detection and alarm systems, ensuring that they’re triggered at the right times and levels. Additionally, Telstar provides maintenance documentation that aligns with industry standards.
CHEMICAL FEED EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE
Chemical feed equipment maintenance is an integral aspect of any industrial and manufacturing plant or scientific and pharmaceutical manufacturing company.
From mechanical components to the instrumentation attached to customized equipment, Telstar can perform routine checks, ongoing maintenance and careful validation and calibration of newly installed units.
Your telemetry systems are designed to speak to you, to provide the measurements and data points that matter most. Collecting accurate data and monitoring your plant’s most crucial processes is imperative to efficient, cost-effective operations of any facility.
Telemetry maintenance services are designed to prevent a breakdown in communications between analog and digital networks, and legacy RTU systems. In the event problems are detected, a regular maintenance schedule ensures they are caught early.
COMPUTER AND PLC CONTROL SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE
To run at maximum efficiency, PLC control systems maintenance requires specialized processors, control panels, and encoding. Such maintenance involves checking the actual functional units and panels as well as the programming processes and logic behind the function.
Ongoing, consistent control of your processes, in addition to documentation, is vital to maintaining efficiency and decreasing cost in any operation
