Quickdraft offers its customers more than well-engineered and manufactured equipment. As a full service company, we also provide the capability for in-house product trials, system evaluations, installation supervision, and complete start-up service. These services enable Quickdraft to be your turnkey supplier for all pneumatic conveying and exhaust system needs.
Service Technician Qualifications
Our service technicians go through an extensive in-house and external training program prior to any outside service work at a customer’s location.
The in-house portion of the training includes completing quality control checks and analytical readings on our equipment when it is trialed and quality control checked prior to shipment. This experience provides a thorough understanding of conveying line velocities, airflow pressures, amp readings, vibration, noise levels, including understanding their inter-relationships how they impact system performance.
The external portion of the turnkey training program involves both formal classes and training during equipment start ups with our Service Manager. Formal classes include vibration analysis, electrical circuit understanding/troubleshooting, air system design and other topics.
Quickdraft’s experienced engineering and service group is available to evaluate your existing conveying/exhaust system (Quickdraft system or others). While at your site, we will take real-time measurements of flow rates, static pressure, temperature, static electricity, etc. and discuss your desired performance criteria.
Using our Borescope we can inspect ductwork, intakes, air/material separators, fan interiors, etc. without incurring the expense of removing, physically inspecting and re-installing the system. Problem areas such as leading edges in duct or receivers, adhesive build up, interior damage or other obstacles can be located and isolated with this equipment. The inspection is videotaped and reviewed with you.
Based on the specific data taken, we will provide a thorough, written evaluation report detailing our findings and recommendations of how to achieve maximum performance and efficiency for your system.
We can arrange for qualified installers and provide the suitable supervision to insure there are no errors during this phase of a project. These services are applicable for all phases of the installation; mechanical, pneumatic, electrical and/or controls. If you should choose to contract your own installer, Quickdraft can still provide supervision as required.
Quickdraft offers experienced start up technicians for both mechanical and electrical start ups of a project. These technicians initially verify that equipment has been installed to our specifications. They then methodically start their portion of the system up, taking readings and making settings to the critical parameters so the system will function to design specifications. In most cases, we want to run trial production at the system’s maximum and minimum limits to ensure the system will perform.
Service and Maintenance Agreements
Our equipment is designed to operate 24/7 and we have a thorough understanding of the maintenance requirements needed to meet this objective. To assist you in keeping your equipment properly maintained and in top condition, Quickdraft offers its customers service and maintenance agreements. These include the evaluation of the components of both pneumatic conveying and exhaust systems on a periodic basis to ensure consistent optimum performance of equipment.
Quickdraft has invested in the appropriate in-house blower units, ductwork, eductors, receivers, controls, etc., so we can trial many conveying/exhaust systems in our facility. Customers can observe the trials at Quickdraft if desired or we can film the trials for further review. Product trials allow us to confirm to our customers that the key elements of a system will perform to specifications.
Our TruLaser 1030 fabrication laser, by TRUMPF, eliminates a great deal of time and waste when cutting aluminum, stainless steel and mild steel. The speed and accuracy of the laser allows for much less labor and cleanup, which means faster delivery times.
