You’ve heard the phrase, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease,” but what if it’s not a wheel? Squeaking, grinding and rubbing noises are all signs of bad lubrication.

  • Removing Dirt and Impurities
  • Maintaining Proper Chemistry
  • Ensuring Lubrication Viscosity
  • Identifying Potential Machine Defects

Fluid Chemistries

Do you have numerous parts rejected on the line or by the customer? Are they mysteriously prone to corrosion? These issues and more could be signs of bad fluid chemistry, which could lead to bad machine performance, breakdowns and wasted money, product and resources. As experts in maintaining fluid chemistry, Harrigan Solutions will test, monitor and replace:

  • Coolant Systems
  • Parts Washers
  • Finishing Systems
  • Paint Prep Systems

Compliance Plan Development & Implementation

Nothing runs better than a clean machine, but what if your machine needs to be clean and sanitary?

  • Developing or Enhancing Your Preventative Maintenance Plan
  • Performing Regular Preventative Maintenance
  • Replacing Necessary Fluids and Lubricants
  • Developing and Implementing a Sanitation Compliance Plan

On-site Sanitation Services

For most manufacturers, a preventative maintenance plan is the only thing needed to ensure operations continue to run smoothly. However, food and beverage manufacturers should also have a Sanitation Compliance Plan in place to prevent contaminations like Listeria and E. coli. Harrigan Solutions will work with you to develop and implement a sanitation plan to address:

  • Machine Cleaning and Sterilization
  • Environmental Testing
  • SQF, FDA, USDA Compliance

Machine breakdowns happen, even when you’ve got the best preventative maintenance plan in place. But, with Harrigan Solutions, you don’t have to stress out when machines break down. With the ability to perform some smaller repairs, our PM team will oversee the entire repair process – contacting repair shops and arranging service calls to:

  • Diagnose Performance Issues
  • Arrange Service Schedule
  • Test All Repairs
  • Provide Progress Reports

Case Study:

How We Helped a Piston Ring Manufacturer Reduce Rust Deposits and Save $10-$15,000 a month

For the better part of a decade, a piston ring manufacturer had been dealing with rust and corrosion issues, leading to a rise in discarded parts, increased scrap and cleaning expenses and a rising amount of rejected orders. The issue had gotten so bad that when Harrigan Solutions was brought in, the plant manager jokingly asked, “will you guarantee to get rid of rust in the plant?”
