CEM Systems: Preventative and Responsive Maintenance
From CEM System Support
While a CEM System is a highly sophisticated piece of analytical equipment, it can only do its job when it is operating properly. Think about your CEM System like you do your own personal vehicle; it has both mechanical and electronic components that require routine maintenance and repair. While there are certain items you may be able to handle on your own, when your car needs maintenance beyond your capability, you look to professionals to make those repairs. And just as the performance of your vehicle depends on the quality of your mechanic, the performance of your continuous emissions monitoring system depends on the technical expertise of those working on it.
As with any type of equipment, CEM Systems are subject to routine wear and tear. In order to ensure maximum performance of the system and to avoid costly downtime or deviations, Air Tox recommends routine maintenance on the CEMS. We can work with you to tailor a preventative maintenance program that suits your specific needs. That program could include regular monthly, quarterly or yearly preventative maintenance visits. During this type of regular service work, our expert technicians replace, clean and rebuild parts based on the both the manufacturer’s recommended frequency as well as our extensive field experience. We also test the performance of the CEM System to make sure all components are functioning at their optimum capacity. Performing regular preventative maintenance helps reduce the possibility of catastrophic failures and unnecessary downtime, and can lead to a longer life expectancy of the CEMS.
Even with the best preventative maintenance program, there may be times where there is an unexpected failure. Air Tox has a team of qualified field service engineers that can mobilize quickly to make the necessary repairs and get your CEM System back up and running again. Since we carry an extensive inventory of spare CEMS parts, our service team has the benefit of having access to this inventory for the timely delivery of any necessary replacement parts.
