How To Ensure Proper Equipment Integration, Calibration & Training

Before you make a large capital investment in processing equipment, it’s important to understand the entire process of equipment integration, calibration and testing. In this blog, we’ll explore the step-by-step process of installing processing equipment in your processing plant. From equipment integration and calibration to training your team, we’re here to provide you with valuable insights and ensure a smooth installation process. 

Processing Equipment Integration

When integrating new processing equipment into an existing system, it’s crucial to consider the available space for the equipment within the production line. At APEC, we’re proud to provide customized layouts, to maximize every inch of your production space. Our team will work closely with you to evaluate the layout and ensure that there is ample room for the new equipment to be seamlessly integrated into your production process.  

During the installation process, sometimes processing companies hire an installation company to ensure that all aspects of the installation are carried out smoothly. This installation partner will help make wiring or plumbing connections. 

Additionally, it’s essential to have detailed information about the controls used in the facility. It’s helpful to know which company supplied the controls to ensure seamless communication between the existing system and the new processing equipment. We’ll collaborate with that company, to ensure that the new equipment can plug in and effectively communicate with each other. 

Equipment Calibration 

Calibration is a critical step to ensure that the equipment is adjusted to specification, guaranteeing optimal performance. Depending on the type of processing equipment, our knowledgeable technicians provide comprehensive support to ensure precise calibration and optimal efficiency. We understand the intricate details of each piece of processing equipment, and our commitment to exceptional customer service means that we will guide you through the calibration process with the utmost attention to detail. 

Equipment Training

When you purchase processing equipment from us, a set of service manuals is included as a valuable resource for your team. These manuals will guide the operation procedures, maintenance and troubleshooting of the equipment. 

In addition to the service manuals, we also offer the option to hire our team for additional training. Our dedicated professionals will come to your facility to provide hands-on training, ensuring that your team is equipped to handle any operational challenges that arise. We understand the value of a well-trained team and our goal is to empower your workforce, enabling them to utilize the processing equipment to its full potential. 

Processing Equipment Testing

Before any processing equipment leaves our facility, we conduct rigorous testing to ensure that it meets the highest quality standards. Our experienced technicians thoroughly evaluate the equipment under various parameters and meticulously document the results. This testing phase is crucial to identify and address any potential issues before the equipment is shipped to your location. 

Once the equipment arrives at your facility, we recommend conducting further testing before production begins. This additional testing provides an opportunity to verify that the equipment has been transported and installed correctly, guaranteeing a seamless transition into your production line.
