Secomak guarantees compliance with latest British Standards
Secomak engineering support guarantees compliance with the latest British Standards – optimising safety, reliability and efficiency.
The British Standard BS8487:2007 – developed in conjunction with global Gas Booster specialist Secomak Ltd – prescribes the latest maintenance guidelines to vendors or owners of one or more Gas Boosters to ensure their ongoing safety and efficiency performance.
The Standard recommends that Drive Belts are replaced annually, Flexible Connectors are replaced every 5 years and that Bearing Assemblies are replaced every 5 years - irrespective of perceived bearing condition.
Ian Roffe, Managing Director Secomak Ltd comments; “All Secomak Gas Boosters are manufactured to – and beyond – the British Standard 8487:2007 at our UK headquarters. Furthermore, Secomak is the only UK manufacturer of Gas Boosters to be an affiliate of IGEM (Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers). As a forerunner in the industry – with a track record of 50 years’ “incident free” supply to the global market – our Gas Boosters are renowned for their exceptional safety and performance levels. Nevertheless, as with all moving parts, wear and damage can occur over time. At Secomak, we can help optimise the performance, reliability and efficiency of your Gas Booster equipment by supporting Gas Booster owners and vendors to ensure that they meet the latest British Standards through regular, preventative maintenance and the supply of vital spare components. This in turn can mitigate against loss of earnings and increased costs associated with downtime and equipment inefficiencies. High quality engineering support is a vital component in any business continuity plan but is, unfortunately, often overlooked until something goes wrong. We frequently hear from Gas Booster owners who have left it late in the season to perform their routine maintenance checks – this means that when the cooler weather arrives the Gas Booster may need more urgent attention, precisely when the equipment’s performance is most critical. ”
