Service for ABB and Heritage Brands
As well as servicing ABB's current products, heritage brands such as
Taylor, TBI, Fischer & Porter, Kent, Sensycon, Bailey, K-flow and Hartmann
& Braun can also be supported.
ABB Start-Up and Commissioning Services - Optimize Performance
for your New Instrumentation
Let us give you peace of mind
Whether commissioning one instrument or many, we guarantee
our service work. We are here to stand by you for the long term.
Products and services from ABB Instrumentation have attained
ISO-9001 quality certification - evidence of our commitment to
Cost-effective service packages
We will plan and recommend a level of service tailored to
meet your specific requirements. Service levels range from
commissioning of single instruments and control loops to
local process area turnarounds and plant-wide installations.
Optimizing your plant or utility
The result: proper, safe operation of your processes contributing
to the high quality of your product. You save time, labor, and
resources while meeting tight turnaround deadlines and we
offer follow-up telephone consultation for any questions that
may arise later.
Highly trained and skilled field engineers
ABB field service engineers know instrumentation inside and
out. They are fully trained on all the latest technology and
instrumentation products. In addition they have the following
- Cross-trained in mechanics, electronics, and
- Some have ISA technician certifications and boiler operating
- Have passed OSHA10 safety training
- Are required to complete four training courses every year
Getting the job done right
You can rely on ABB start-up and commissioning specialists to:
- Arrive on-time and equipped with the proper tools, safety
equipment, and configuration devices
- Check for proper electrical, mechanical, and piping
- Verify instrument calibration and range settings
- Download and set up instrument configuration parameters
- Safely energize the system to ensure proper operation,
including protective devices
- Check, tune, and troubleshoot control loops
- Check communications and fieldbus operation
- Explain operation and maintenance requirements to your staff
- Provide necessary instrument, safety, and system documentation
- Provide informal training to plant personnel
Instrumentation Repair Service - Minimize Your Cost of ownership
We recalibrate and certify the repaired instrument using our
global network of accredited calibration rig facilities. All
are carried out in accordance with relevant international
standards and original manufacturing specifications.
Normal turnaround time is less than ten working days from
receipt of shipment. But depending on the instrument, we
can expedite repair and refurbishment and turn it around in
as little as 24 hours. For customers with critical processes
and needs, we can negotiate specific response times.
On-site repair service
Centralized coordination of field-based service specialists
provides prompt on-site reactive test and repair of all ABB
Instrumentation products. ABB also offers on-site maintenance
and repair contracts.
Instrument Calibration Service - On Site Calibration
Valve Actuators and Positioners
Actuators and positioners often require regular and routine maintenance to
ensure peak operating efficiencies are maintained. The actual diagnostics
and maintenance needed depends on plant age, on the type of actuator or
positioner installed and the experience of plant personnel. ABB provides
full service maintenance and calibration contracts for the following
actuators and positioners from all manufacturers.
It is routinely necessary to check the integrity and accuracy of a flowmeter
system. Flowmeters vary in complexity and application which often requires
extensive training and certification. Whether it is changing pipe conditions
or adhering to a regulatory or plant standard, ABB has the skill, and latest
tools available to meet your demand. ABB provides full service maintenance
and calibration contracts for the following flowmeters from all manufacturers.
ABB Damper Drive Solutions - Updating Bailey Damper Drives
Re-energize Boiler Performance
Improved heat rate
Old damper actuators do not respond quickly and accurately to signals from
the control system resulting in inefficient combustion. The result is poor
heat-rate and undesirable emissions. Upgrading your actuators improves these
and can result in immediate fuel savings.
Reduce maintenance costs
Old damper actuators result in increased repair and maintenance expenses.
Upgrading them reduces maintenance and the associated costs in terms of
spares, time and unplanned shutdowns.
Reduce operating costs
Upgrading damper actuators saves fuel costs by reducing process variability.
ABB's pneumatic positioners also have low air consumption reducing
compressor operating costs. Given the number of final control elements in
the average plant, the total cost savings can reach $100,000's per year.
Analyzer Calibration Service - On Site Calibration
field service technicians have a great deal of experience in servicing
analyzers. They are cross-trained in chemistry, electronics, and
communications. Many have ISA technician certifications and experience in
servicing boiler water and wastewater laboratories. All have taken and
passed OSHA10 safety training. To keep them current, they are required to
complete training courses every year. They are up to date with the latest
technology and equipment to ensure your new analyzers work the way you
