Who does the audit?
An Alfa Laval Condition Audit can be performed onsite by highly experienced Alfa Laval service engineers with deep freshwater generator and process knowledge.
How do you get the results?
Upon completion of the audit, you will receive a detailed report summarizing the audit results along with the engineer’s recommendations for maintenance and cleaning services your unit requires. More importantly, they can advise you when to use those services, and how often you need them.
Using standardized procedures, the engineer checks all unit components to confirm that everything is performing according to expectations. If you are operating with an older installation or have experienced a change in process conditions, the Condition Audit can identify important information about the state of your equipment.
During a Condition Audit when the freshwater generator is in operation, the Alfa Laval service engineer is able to check:
- Bearing block and compressor (ORCA)
- Pumps and motors
- Parameter settings
- Spare part inventory
If the unit is not in operation, the service engineer will also check:
- Gasket and plate condition
- Detailed frame condition, including connection linings
- Fouling evaluation
- Pump condition
Optimizing the maintenance schedule of your freshwater generator is a good way to both increase your overall production reliability and reduce upkeep expenses down the road. With an Alfa Laval Performance Audit, you get the information you need to secure maximum throughput and the highest possible equipment uptime.
Following their inspection, the engineer performs an analysis of the collected data in order to provide you with a thorough report featuring:
- Detailed performance status
- Recommended actions
- Suggestions for follow-up
