Why Your Business Should Have an Oil Circuit Recloser Maintenance Program in Place

October 15, 2016 9:39 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

One of the most popular services we provide to our clients is the regular repair and maintenance of oil circuit reclosers (OCRs). Rather than waiting for your OCRs to break down and need significant repairs, we strongly urge all companies to formulate a solid three to five year maintenance program to ensure that your OCRs are constantly in their optimal working condition.

There are a number of reasons why having such a program is so important. These include:

  • Reclosers operating longer: Why would you not want your reclosers to stay in service longer? The less often you have to replace these devices, the better. Not only does it save you a significant amount of money to maximize their lifespan, but it also prevents you from having to deal with the hassles of system outages and other nuisances.
  • Reduced system outages: By having your OCRs regularly maintained, you ensure that not only will they last longer, but they will also continue to perform at peak efficiency. This means fewer outages, fewer errors and fewer blinking lights to annoy you.
  • Greater profitability: When you’re not spending all your money on significant OCR repairs or replacing entire pieces of equipment, you can be more profitable as a company. It’s not just the repairs and replacements that cost money, either. Any downtime you have caused by system outages is going to take a financial toll on your company. If you run a relatively small operation, every second of downtime is crucial and has the potential to cause major damage to your financial wellbeing. Don’t jeopardize your company’s health! Make sure you get your OCRs maintained on a regular basis.
  • Better customer satisfaction: Because you won’t have to worry about outages or additional costs caused by an increased length of time, you won’t have to worry about ruining the experience for your customers. This greater likelihood of customer satisfaction leads, in turn, to a greater chance of repeat business and long term prosperity for your company.

Central Illinois Reclosers Inc. can help you to develop a scheduled maintenance program for all your equipment based on your company’s needs. Ideally, these maintenance visits should occur every three years, but they can occur as infrequently as every five years depending on their usage rates and how well you manage your overall operation.

If you do end up needing parts replaced, that’s not a problem! We have all the capabilities to create these custom parts to keep your business up and running. We have a fully operational, state of the art machine shop that allows us to customize the non-reclosing feature for various types of reclosers. All this equipment is digitally mastered for 99.9 percent accuracy.

Finally, in addition to our repair and maintenance services and our sales of both new and reconditioned OCRs for single and three phase, we also provide testing services to make sure all of your parts are working as they should be.
