Safety Notice

We wish you and your family are safe and doing fine in these tough times. Due to lockdown and other measures taken in the fight against COVID-19 virus are restricting us as a society and have also led to plant shutdowns as well as disruptions in production. Following the pandemic, restarting the plants in a controlled manner will be necessary. Atlas Copco equipment is essential in many manufacturing applications, and we will contribute to safeguarding your production process.

A long shutdown period can cause some unexpected event during the restart. Here are some recommendations to reduce unforeseen effects:

  • Flush the pump and change the oil: contamination present in the oil can leave deposits and block lubricating parts affecting pump performance and lifetime.
  • Replace shaft seals: shutdown may have caused some internal parts to deform, leading to internal leaks.

To ensure proper and safe restarting we recommend that our customer service team accompany you. Our start-up support and assisted plant recommissioning can help prevent serious issues, as nothing is more expensive and time-consuming than a plant with limited functionality.
