Engineering components supplier BMG’s Regional Service Centre (RSC), in Port Elizabeth, offers critical solution services to diverse sectors, including the automotive industry, power and petrochemicals plants, manufacturing, marine, agriculture and general engineering.
“Through the consolidation of BMG’s workshop facilities and field services into a centralised hub in the Eastern Cape, this dedicated RSC is able to assist customers who are faced with a lack of engineering expertise, costly machinery repairs and unnecessary downtime periods,” explains BMG Fluid Technology business unit manager David Dyce.
Advantages for customers include improved service, repair and delivery efficiencies, centralised technical support and easy accessibility to BMG’s comprehensive range of quality branded engineering components.
He explains that an important focus of this service centre is on fluid technology services that integrate quality branded components, advanced hydraulic engineering and contamination control, as well as a test and repair facility to ensure optimum performance and extended service life of every hydraulic system.
“BMG is able to assist with design, manufacture and assembly of all hydraulic and pneumatic systems, whether it is for a workshop improvement or a hydraulic system for an entire new plant. “The highly experienced team works in consultation with customers to ensure the most efficient solution – for example, from small multipurpose power packs to large power packs for mining and industrial applications.”
BMG follows stringent International Organisation for Standardisation accredited procedures to ensure the integrity of every hydraulic system, the company emphasises. Each repaired component is assessed by the company’s testing facility and certificates are issued as assurance that equipment has passed the strictest performance standards. These products include variable and fixed displacement pumps, industrial and mobile valves, low and high speed motors, as well as cylinders and accumulators.
The company explains that a critical element in any hydraulic system is contamination control. BMG’s approach to fluid analysis emphasises the benefits of a system that is maintained through the use of filtration equipment, coupled with a regular sampling and testing programme. An efficient fluid analysis service ensures improved performance, extended life of components and reduced maintenance costs.
BMG’s mobile field service team conducts breakdown and routine maintenance on-plant and carries out troubleshooting and advises on possible productivity improvements, for the highest level of plant output and reliability.
The company’s service to the hydraulics sector also includes a mobile workshop that is fitted with tools, equipment and quality branded spares, to be able to efficiently perform functions like troubleshooting, on-site repairs, installations, commissioning and system flushing. This service also incorporates on-site fluid analysis and hose and pipe assembly.
