IMI Announces New Preventive Maintenance and Service Program For Magnetic Equipment

Date Posted: September 16, 2013

Boyne City, MI—IMI recently announced a new Preventative Maintenance and Service program for customers that encompasses independent, third-party plant audits, magnetic equipment installation, upgrades & repairs and comprehensive employee training on best practices for ensuring maximum performance and longevity of their magnets.

The program is well suited to companies who need a documented, independent evaluation of their magnetic equipment on an annual basis to either meet their companies' internal benchmarks or to maintain their quality and safety certification through various 3rd party programs.

As magnets can potentially lose strength over time due to damage, exposure to heat, etc., IMI's qualified technician will perform an evaluation using a magnetic pull test to ensure that the magnetic equipment is operating within the acceptable threshold.

They will also carry out a thorough visual inspection of the magnet and cycle through the mechanical steps to ensure motors, belting, cylinders and guide rods are all in proper working order, while replacing any worn parts such as gaskets and seals.

Upon completion of the audit, full documentation will be presented to the customer, along with recommendations for correctable action that may need to be taken in order to return the magnet to its’ original holding value.

IMI's trained technicians are also available to work with on-site staff to handle or oversee installation of magnetic equipment and to help train maintenance, electrical or sanitation staff on best practices for administering pull tests and maintaining optimal magnet performance.
