To shorten maintenance time and increase equipment performance and reliability, Tetra Pak has developed Maintenance Units. They are made up of many parts that together perform a function in the machine, streaminling the handling of parts and maintenance.
Maintenance Units are complete plug and play units. Tetra Pak's service engineers replace an entire unit, rather than examining and changing individual parts on-site. Each unit is pre-assembled, pre-set and tested, so it requires a minimum of fine-tuning as with single parts replacement.
There are 65 different types of units with different functionality. Among them, maintenance Units for Filling Machine TBA 19, TBA/22 , A/3 Flex and A/3 Speed include Pressure & Cutting Jaws, Peroxide Pump, Yokes, and Final Folder Wheels etc. are more commonly used by our customers.
The whole process is simplified with Maintenance Units, compared to using single parts.
There are fewer steps, and every step is quicker, which saves both downtime and work hours
The graph below gives you a quick overview of how many hours it is possible to save when using Maintenance Units instead of single spare parts. The 10 most frequently used Maintenance Unit families are presented in the table.
And don't forget the other benefits:
The Maintenance Units assortment consists of two identically number suites; 1284xxx-xxxx (new and reconditioned parts) and 1332xxx-xxxx (only new parts), always with the latest functionality.
Re-conditioning not only reduces cost and environmental impact, it also often improves the features of the part. Whenever a Reconditioned Maintenance Unit is shipped out from Tetra Pak to customer site. A USED Maintenance Unit is expected to be returned within 5 Weeks after receipt of the replacement Refurbished Maintenance Unit.
