Hydraulic Actuation Conversion

At SBT we understand that technology improves and older equipment that was once thought to be leading technology now requires updating and can benefit from technical improvements.

Once an item of equipment has been identified we begin the process of improvement using data from RCAs or completed FMECA studies to best understand how the equipment can benefit from the improvements.

  • The typical improvements concentrate around maintenance and operation of the equipment;

  • Improving maintenance downtime;

  • Installing bearings with greater service factors;

  • Improvement and upgrades to sealing design and installation;

  • Gearbox upgrades complete with improved installation techniques and tooling;

  • Holding of critical long lead time items on stock;

  • Modifications to valve actuators;

  • Installation of hydraulically operated systems to replace manually operated valves.
