Refurbishment can add five or more years to the life of the spreader
Extending spreader life maximizes the long-term value of your spreader fleet
Evaluation of Spreader Condition
A refurbishment project begins with a thorough inspection of the spreader structure, as well as its sub-systems and components. Inspection determines not only the present fitness of a spreader, but its suitability for refurbishment.
Enclosed pictures show Hessenatie spreaders in Belgium before and after refurbishment:
The goal of refurbishment is to add five or more years to the reliable life of your spreader. Typical areas for refurbishment include:
• New electric components
• New hydraulic components
• New end beams
• New flipper arms
• New twistlocks
• A new telescopic chain and/or new sliding pads.
Bromma has unparalleled spreader knowledge, and as such is best qualified to refurbish them.
Refurbishment can be performed in the terminal workshop or in a workshop nearby. Doing the refurbishment within the terminal offers the opportunity for terminal maintenance personnel to get additional knowledge and experience through the interaction with the Bromma spreader professionals
Spreaders damaged in terminal accidents can also be subject for a repair project by Bromma spreader professionals.A repair project have many similarities to a refurbishment project. A damage repair project begins with an on-site evaluation of spreader condition and the preparation of a report for distribution to terminal staff, insurers, and other third parties.
Bromma can also offer performance upgrades of various kinds. Examples of such upgrades include
• Control system
• Twin-Twenty detection sensors
