Machines nearing the end of their useful life can often be revitalized by rebuilding This is often a cost-effective way to restore the performance and reliability of a machine and extend its life.
Rebuilding can take place either on-site, or in a Baker Perkins factory.
Rebuilds use proven Baker Perkins Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts so high quality and long life are assured. These are made to the original or improved specifications.
Rebuild Options: Twin Screw Extruders
Level 1: Return to original performance levels
The machine is returned to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specification. This involves a complete strip down, replacement of worn parts, re-machining of critical areas, and re-assembly to ‘as new’ condition:
- Replace barrel screws and shafts
- Check all bearings and bushes
- Fit torque limiter, if not fitted
Level 2: Upgrade and improve
This involves all the work involved in Level 1. It also involves the addition of upgraded parts and / or new technology. These can raise the performance level above that of the original machine, and include:
- Change motor from DC to AC
- New control panel for computer control of temperatures and speeds etc.
