New Gearboxes Feature Extended Warranties and Newly Enhanced Parts that Improve Performance and Lengthen Maintenance Intervals for Sundyne Pumps & Compressors
Arvada, Colorado: September 28, 2020 – Sundyne, a global leader in the design and manufacture of API compliant pumps and compressors for the oil & gas, refining, power generation, chemical and water treatment industries, today announced an expansion to its Gearbox Exchange Program that provides greater financial incentives for customers while also shortening delivery time for exchanges anywhere around the globe.
The gearboxes operating in Sundyne pumps and compressors are designed and built to last for decades. Thousands of units have been operating in refineries, chemical plants and other industrial plants for decades, and many are approaching the point where they would benefit from an overhaul.
“At a time when COVID interruptions are hindering work schedules and maintenance staff are stretched thin with other priorities, we’re helping customers skip the hassles of in-house repairs by simply exchanging their gearbox for a factory-made, upgraded replacement that features all new parts and an extended warranty,” said Donald de Regnier, Sundyne’s Aftermarket Product Manager.
Sundyne’s Gearbox Exchange Program offers a convenient and affordable way for operators to update and improve the performance of their Sundyne equipment:
- Gearbox replacements can be administered in a bolt on fashion;
- Delivery times for customers in Asia have been reduced from weeks to days, due to Sundyne’s expanded footprint in Singapore;
- Customer credits for turning in an existing Sundyne gearbox have been increased (and are now up to $10,000 USD in most cases).
New gearboxes include a wide range of improved parts, including:
- New input & output seals;
- Lower gearbox housing improvements;
- Improved bearings & bearing linings;
- A stronger internal lube pump;
- New thrust washers and alignment bolts;
- An improved desiccant breather.
“Our exchange program has been popular in the United States and Europe for years, and we’re now expanding it throughout Latin America and Asia,” adds Donald de Regnier. “This program provides significant savings compared to purchasing a new gearbox, and it also offers a convenient short-cut, in terms of time and labor for maintenance personnel – which is critical today, given staff rotations and other restrictions during the pandemic.”
The Sundyne Gearbox Exchange Program can be applied to any Sundyne LMV, LMC, BMP or BMC gearbox. Once a customer’s request is received, Sundyne will ship the gearbox while the old unit is returned for a rebate. Gearboxes received through the Exchange Program include a 12-month warranty from start-up, or 18 months from shipment.
