IPS has always been known for its work with electric motors and generators. We now offer expanded in-shop capabilities for gearboxes, pumps, fans, compressors, and blowers.
Our aim is always to do as much as possible on-site to avoid extended downtime. IPS field service technicians test, replace bearings and seals, and re-align shafts on-site.
When we transport rotating machinery to our service centers, it’s to engineer for the application and remanufacture with better materials.
Any shop can replace parts and do cursory fits for sleeves, shafts, and seals. IPS offers the industry-specific experience, engineering, metalworking, and equipment to improve reliability and operating efficiency.
Rotating assemblies go out of tolerance. IPS looks for misalignment and imbalance, but we also address root causes. We recommend resolving the issue once, instead of doing a cheap repair every year for ten years.
This approach requires significant investments in tooling and consumables, plus skilled metalworkers who can hold tight tolerances. We repair and replace shafts, shaft sleeves, bearings, couplings, and cast components, such as impellers, diffusers, and vanes.
Our high-voltage service centers have the lift capacity, lathing, and milling equipment to handle large rotating assets:
IPS veteran in-shop technicians work closely with our engineers in a high-mix, low-volume manufacturing environment. We invest time in design and engineering, mill high-grade materials such as Duplex stainless steel, and manufacture in limited quantities.
IPS has the systems and training to service, repair, and remanufacture all rotating machinery (we also handle their motors and VFDs):
Gearboxes — Repair, reconditioning, modifications, and upgrades
Pumps — Repair, reconditioning, modifications, and upgrades
Fans — Repair, reconditioning, modifications, and upgrades
Blowers — Repair, reconditioning, modifications, and upgrades
Compressors — Repair, reconditioning, modifications, and upgrades
Our industry-specific experience makes us well suited to engineer for the application. We start by assessing your rotating machinery and understanding what you need from your air and water delivery systems.
IPS engineers look at failure modes and then develop recommendations. We want to eliminate vibration and heat buildup that accelerates bearing wear and increases oil consumption.
Your test data and application requirements guide the development of customized solutions for reliability. The return on investment comes in increased uptime and energy efficiency.
