Lower Cost of Ownership
Leveraging the highly reputable M&J Valve and Copes Vulcan brands, Celeros Flow Technology is at the forefront of valve technology. Providing a foundation to our product portfolio is a comprehensive suite of engineering resources that address the entire lifecycle. This helps to substantially boost the performance and extend the operational lifespan of our valves, which translates into a lower cost of ownership from the customer’s perspective. It is backed by the ability of our regional service centers to deliver exceptional localized support and react rapidly to the demands placed upon them.
Valves that have been in service for a long period of time can be modernized and converted to new designs that are more effective. This will help to enhance their operational efficiency, as well as reducing the risk of potential leaks. Migration away from outdated floating-bushing arrangements is advised, as is converting molded retainers to modern molded seat designs. Advances in material science have also been witnessed over the years, and Celeros Flow Technology is able to provide metallurgical upgrades accordingly - thereby increasing corrosive resistance and mechanical robustness.
Celeros Flow Technology prides itself on being responsive to customers when they need to replace valves. Our field operatives can help with the installing process in order to minimize downtime, while our repair centers can refurbish the original valve (then store it for the customer as a spare). To safeguard against operational interruptions, we recommend that customers also maintain a safety stock of component parts. This should cover everything from seals and packing, through to gates, stems and seats. Based on their engineering knowledge and application experience, our technicians can recommend what quantity levels will be needed for each respective component. Through detailed documentation, it can be ensured that all supplied components adhere to customer standards.
Routine maintenance packages mean that our field service technicians can provide customers with a variety of different key services (which can be scheduled alongside periodic maintenance work) for ensuring valve upkeep. These include valve lubrication, flushing and greasing. There are also operator installation services, limit setting and troubleshooting activities - all of which can be done directly at the valve site. The Celeros Flow Technology field service team is fully OQ certified to winterize valves installed in locations with low-temperature climates, so that they continue to function as expected despite exposure to challenging conditions. Our field service staff are trained to perform and assist with DOT inspections of valves (covering cycling, flushing, greasing, and visual checks), and provide the necessary documentation once inspections have been completed.
