However, fuel pumps are critical components of a company’s operational and logistical processes, and a well-maintained fuel pump is less likely to fail unexpectedly or perform inaccurately.
Regular servicing helps maintain the optimal performance and efficiency of fuel pumps. Over time, fuel pumps can develop wear and tear, leading to reduced efficiency and compromised performance. An annual service allows technicians to inspect, clean, and replace any worn-out components with genuine replacements, ensuring that the fuel pump continues to operate at its best.
By performing an annual service, potential issues can be detected and addressed early, increasing the overall reliability and durability of the fuel pump. If a fuel pump fails and the business has a break down situation, this can impact on their immediate ability to continue with their planned activities.
A well-maintained fuel pump also contributes to the safety of the fuel installation and onsite requirements. If a fuel pump malfunctions or fails, the site can have not only a safety hazard to deal with but also an environmental one. An annual OEM service helps identify and address any potential safety concerns in advance, ensuring the equipment continues to operate reliably and safely.
Some fuel pumps already come with manufacturer warranties and OEMs can also usually offer extended warranties, as well as an inspection and calibration visit. By following the recommended annual service schedule provided by the OEM, fuel pump owners can ensure that their fuel pump warranty remains intact and they have the maximum protection available when it comes to equipment maintenance.
As the OEM for Merridale equipment, we have a history of how the equipment was manufactured, such as which version of software has been installed, which components have been used, and the precise specification of the equipment. Third parties would not always have this vital info. As well as this, Merridale have unique engineer’s access to all Merridale management systems, and we keep full work and equipment records that show if any subsequent upgrades have been performed. Third parties would not necessarily have the information or access rights to hand when trying to service equipment. This means that Merridale can arrive to any issue correctly armed with the right knowledge and the correct parts.
