Food-grade thermal equipment for the food and bev Industry

Our experienced reverse engineering experts can diagnose any issues, provide strategic solutions, and get your equipment working before you know it.

Heater failure is frustrating and costs thousands in lost revenue.

We can help get you back up and running.

Our team will: 

  • Assess whether a move to components made of a different material (Silicone, Teflon, Epoxy) might be better for your specific environment
  • Adjust the size, settings, and configuration of your equipment to reduce moisture safely
  • Add system parts for improved equipment strength and function
  • Identify your peak supply voltage (and customize your system to work with that voltage)
