24 Hour Emergency Service in the Midwest
While regular lift station preventative maintenance is ideal and tends to identify and address the majority of lift station issues, you may still find yourself in need of emergency service from time to time. Brabazon offers 24 hour emergency service on lift stations in the Midwest, with locations in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Wausau, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Northern Illinois. This service is vital for getting your lift station up and running as quickly as possible in order to minimize operational downtime and any resulting damage or loss of revenue. Because we are experienced with all brands and types of lift stations, we will come prepared to address issues specific to your equipment and its applications.
Cost Saving Lift Station Preventative Maintenance
Over the lifespan of a lift station, nothing is more important for maintaining its productivity than regular preventative maintenance. In particular, regularly scheduled preventative maintenance can save you on costly repairs, revenue loss due to downtime and potentially expensive emergency services.
When Brabazon performs regular lift station maintenance, we address issues that we know are common across lift stations. For example, we inspect impellers for wear and tear because worn out impellers have a negative effect on a lift station pump’s efficiency. In fact, a worn impeller often causes a pump to use significantly more electricity to operate as a result of its diminished efficiency. In the worst cases, the worn impeller and increased electrical demands can lead to premature failure of the pump motor. This outcome is most likely if left undetected and unattended.
Because of the potential for electrical overload and failures, Brabazon’s maintenance team also performs complete electrical checks on the lift station system. These electrical checks include vibration reading/monitoring, motor meg testing and amperage and voltage readings. We record and document these findings in a report that includes pictures of each lift station and pump for your reference and understanding of any issues identified.
