Valve & Flowmeter Sizing and Specification
Our sales engineers know that sizing and specification of valves and flowmeters can be a daunting task, so let us do it for you! We can advise on brands, technologies, body materials, liners, transmitters and positioners, even calculate your required Cv/Kv.
Valve & Actuator Packages
Our technicians have years of experience mounting actuators to a multitude of different valve types, even designing specialist brackets when needed. If you require a plug and play actuated valve delivered to site, we’re here to help you out!
Valve & Regulator Modification
Fine Controls is committed to providing a complete set of precision regulator and valve services, including plant/factory specified valve and regulator modification and reconditioning. We carry a vast stock of regulators, valve parts and repair kits for fast replacements that minimise downtime and result in improved designs, better matching of valves and regulators to service conditions, and a more predictable service life.
Core Product Repair & Servicing
The repair and calibration of most instruments can be carried out either in-house or if necessary we can visit you on-site. Our designated calibration and repair team provide fast response and repair times to meet any customer deadlines. All work is traceable to national standards and certifications can be supplied upon request.
Our technical department offer complete, certified removal of combustible contaminants from the surface of any equipment or system in oxygen service, including any component that may encounter an oxygen rich environment. Instruments are then returned to your required site specially packaged and secure.
Site Services (Siemens Approved Engineers)
Occasionally, instruments will fail or may need to be replaced or serviced while inline or on site to reduce system shut downs. Fine Controls offers on-site servicing, troubleshooting, fitting and replacements covering all our core products. Any on-site service is carried out by qualified Siemens Approved Engineers and underpinned by our access to expertise from cross-industry product specialists and manufacturer guidance. If you require a site visit, please contact our Sales Engineers initially and they will direct you to the correct service department.
Pneumatic & Electrical Panel Builds
Fine Controls can design and build any electrical and pneumatic panels to your required specification or we can design a bespoke panel based on your application goals. Whether you’re starting from scratch or replacing an outdated electrical or pneumatic system, we can help. This service includes complete system design, integration and installation at your stated delivery site, including any required certification. We will also liaise with you throughout the design and build process, ensuring peace of mind, functionality and a panel that is built to last.
