The After Sales Department of GEA Barr-Rosin in the UK has recently closed its largest ever order for spare parts. The order clearly demonstrates the importance of maintaining a regular supply of spares to ensure the integrity of plants especially when they are located in remote regions with limited access.
The client, Dead Sea Works, part of the fertilizer division of Israel Chemicals Ltd. has recently installed a Potash Rotary Dryer from GEA Barr-Rosin at its site in Sdom, southern Israel. To complete the order the company invested approximately £750,000 in original spare parts to be held onsite to ensure a continuity of supply.
The site, located at the southern tip of the Dead Sea close to the Jordanian border is the world's fourth largest producer of potash products and exports worldwide. The remote location means that in the unlikely event of a breakdown emergency spares would be difficult to obtain quickly and any interruption to production would be catastrophic for the company and its global clients. For this reason the company decided to eliminate any risk of delays be stocking a comprehensive spares inventory on site.
"Dead Sea Works recognised the importance of being prepared for every eventuality by placing a significant order for crucial spare parts for their rotary dryer," said After Sales Manager, Howard Grossman, whose team's involvement in the deal was key to this success. "In the long run, such actions can save money."
GEA Barr-Rosin has the ability to supply spare parts for its drying systems worldwide. However companies are advised to keep appropriate stocks of vital components, especially wear parts, onsite to ensure immediate availability in the event of a breakdown of unscheduled maintenance. This requirement becomes even more acute when operating in a remote location such as the Dead Sea.
