Preventative/Predictive Maintenance

Through all of my experiences, the one constant that pertains to downtime is that the absolute minimum is acceptable and, for that reason, I am committed to being as proactive as possible to reduce these situations.

ZSES

offers scheduled running and downtime maintenance services of vital production equipment. We also work with maintenance and production personnel to create and implement a plant-specific maintenance plan and guide and instruct them on what to do and what to look for. Predictive maintenance is another critical program that enables us to find a problem before it becomes one. They are difficult to detect without the use of special equipment and procedures. Infrared heat detection cameras are used to find situations such as the overheating of equipment, connections and conductors due to age, poor contact, deteriorating conditions and improper installations. Scheduled maintenance allows for inspection and detection of these hazardous situations and, as a result, preemptive and swift action to avoid catastrophic failures and long, unexpected downtime.

ZSES

has made a strong commitment to our customers by obtaining the neccessary equipment and training to provide such inspections.

Service

Whatever preventative maintenance program may be in effect, it is idealistic to believe that no problems will arise unexpectedly. With that said, it is very important to have a reactive plan in effect. Service call response is swift and repair time is kept to a minimum by virtue of applicable knowledge and reliable and available avenues for parts and material.

Health and Safety

ZSES

believes that any compromise in contractor and personnel health and safety is not acceptable. From that belief,

ZSES

is proud to say that the company has never experienced a lost-time injury since our beginning. We also believe in leading by example. Our goal is to provide the devices and integrated systems to our customers so they have the ability to minimize or even negate any potential hazards. We understand Health and safety are two of the highest concerns that exist in plant and commercial environments today. Air quality and machine operating hazards have been an industry focus of

ZSES

for several years. I have installed new gas detection systems in large garages and arenas in the recent past and also interconnected the system to control the air exchanging equipment to eliminate any ill effects of such gases on personnel and patrons alike. Installation of operator safety devices including foot and hand switches, electrically-interlocked mechanical barriers (including the manufacturing and installation of the barriers themselves), pressure pads, light curtains, and warning/indicating devices to notify operators and others as to machine operation and potential safety hazards. ZSES has also created and installed equipment-specific systems such as overhead crane anti-collision devices and overhead door safety devices.

Controls

ZSES

has been diligent in understanding and implementing controls on different levels. First, we have a panel-building operation that can accommodate from the very small size to large multiple-cabinet systems, from small monitoring systems to complete machine production controls. We also offer full field installation services for all of our cabinets. Second, our projects have included installation of programming variable frequency drives, relay logic control and programmable logic control panels, and complete rewiring and updating of existing panels and equipment.

ZSES

has spent several years involved in the installations and applications of PLCs. Equipment and processes that we've worked on have included plant production monitoring, Human Machine Interface (HMI) panels for ease of operator inputs and control of equipment, as well as air exchange and building environmental controls.

Power Management

With the cost of energy today, an effective plant power management system is invaluable.

ZSES

has invested time and resources in the research of such devices and their applications. We have successfully installed capacitor banks to improve overall plant power factor values which, as a direct result, will reduce the cost of power used.

ZSES

has also installed power metering modules that monitor power consumption throughout the working day and off hours to determine consumption patterns and wasteful use of energy.

Customer Commitment

ZSES

is constantly working on updating my knowledge of all aspects of the trade including new technologies and products that will improve customer safety, power consumption, and productivity as well as minimize any downtime. We can also provide licensed and certified welding and fabrication services. I am very confident that

ZSES

can provide the type of service that you and your company can depend on. I look forward to working with you in the near future.
