Instrowest's custom built project and shutdown support trailer has been specifically designed and built to service our clients. This trailer is a clean room, office and crib facility all rolled into one, ideal for a small team of technicians.
We regularly use this trailer for shutdown support and plant commissioning.
Previously we found that we could not carry enough specialist tooling, or commonly used consumables with us and that we often spent hours looking for and or ordering a $20 part, or waiting for another technician to finish with a calibrator or cordless tool. We also found that most clients crib facilities were lacking and that we had no place to run an induction, meeting, shift change or even hang a gannt chart. With our shutdown trailer this is no longer an issue!
The Instrowest shutdown trailer is loaded with calibration tooling, hand tools, crib facilities and office equipment for document control; this allows us to complete the job and the appropriate documentation onsite with little fuss.
Instrowest has invested greatly in quality calibration tooling and equipment and as such can now complete almost all onsite calibrations required. Instrowest has enough calibration tooling to keep every employee busy and not waiting for someone to finish with a tool before they are able to start their task
Because Instrowest specialize in instrumentation, this has allowed us to equip ourselves with high quality calibration tooling rarely carried by other contracting companies. We are continually increasing our range of calibration equipment and tooling and as such we are well equipped to provide fully equipped maintenance and shutdown personnel. Our calibration tooling is NATA calibrated every 12 months to ensure its accuracy and repeatability. All calibration tooling is complete with all leads and process connections in a field box so that the technician is not searching for parts to complete the job.
All Instrowest tooling is kept in good working order.
The cost of Calibration Tooling hire
Instrowest recently requested a quote for the rental of calibration tooling similar to what Instrowest carries in our shutdown and project support trailer (what we use on most shutdowns) from the market leader in calibration equipment rentals, the result was astounding.
For calibration equipment only (no hand tools, consumables or process fittings etc.) the daily cost over a one week period would be $2,830.30/day plus a one of packaging and delivery cost of $2,315.00. Therefore over a 7 day shutdown period the comparitive cost for Instrowest’s calibration tooling would be $22,127.10, far more than our current charge out rate for our trailer.
We believe that our day rate for the trailer represents extraordinary value given that it is full of not only calibration tooling but a full supply of hand tools, power tools and common consumables, as well as ample room to accommodate 5 people a shift for crib, this is yet another example of Instrowest fulfilling our core value of Good Value.
