News Alert: Ship&Shore Environmental Offers High-Quality After-Market Services to Oxidizer Operators
November 02, 2015—-Ship & Shore Environmental Inc. has installed regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs) for hundreds of clients, helping them become much more energy-efficient via air pollution capture and control systems for industrial applications.
But even more than that, Ship & Shore also has helped clients save money by providing a wide range of after-market services ranging from routine inspections to preventive maintenance and optimization services that may include replacing or upgrading RTO parts.
“Apart from our high-end RTO products, we also are highly qualified to supply after-market service and products,” says Anoosheh M. Oskouian, president and CEO of Ship & Shore Environmental, based in Long Beach, Calif. “And we can service most oxidizer manufacturers in the market as well as offer compatible after-market products such as heat-exchangers, economizers, condensing boilers, and PLC upgrades.”
Oskouian explains that the National Fire Protection Associated (NFPA) 86 standards and clean air permits often require oxidizer operators to have scheduled maintenance programs for their systems. To that end, Ship & Shore Environmental provides inspection, preventive maintenance, general service and repairs, retrofits, and spare parts – all steps to ensure the highest oxidizer performance.
Ship & Shore’s retrofits and upgrades include Heat Recovery Units and Energy Reduction, which increase capacity, improve capture and increase destruction rate efficiency. It also offers Burner Tuning and Upgrades, Reliability Adjustments, Engineering and Feasibility Studies as well as assistance with applying for Utility Rebates and Incentives.
Preventive Maintenance starts with an in-house review of the Oxidizer and process diagram followed by audit of the system’s operation, and an extensive inspection checklist.
Customers receive a detailed report with recommendations for improving performance, reliability, and safety upon completion of the inspection service.
“Our Standard preventive maintenance is based on equipment make and model and consists of four categories,” Oskouian says, adding that Ship & Shore Environmental offers quarterly, semi-annual and annual PM Service programs.
