Electronic Drives and Controls Services

Universal field service technicians installed two new premium booster pump systems with variable frequency drives. Normally, such a job would require an interruption of service for an entire day. However, our in-house engineer was able to reduce the downtime to a half-hour, thanks to a clever workaround that was used to keep the pumps running while the new controls were being installed.

Rigging, Removal, and Installation

You can expect the following from our corrective services:

A historical New York City landmark was in a bind when a powerful storm knocked out their power. Their main chiller system was down and working on back-ups.  Our engineering staff worked round the clock to help get them back up in a timely fashion.  We rushed to expedite and modify new contactors, built new bus-bars and retrofit everything in the original panel get them back up and running.

Universal Electric recently showed its resilience and the ability to service our customers by performing a same day shutdown to replace an antiquated duplex booster pump system.  Technicians arrived bright and early pre-planned with our customer at a local university  to remove an old style and replace with new modern state of the art duplex booster pump system operated with built in pressure transducers and VFD’s to operate the pump system saving the customer money on their electrical costs.  Factory trained technicians installed the booster pump system utilizing all new copper propress fittings to help with expediting the install and had unit up and running by middle of afternoon on automatic, maintaining the pressure in the building as designed.  This was a first time job for this particular customer who had concerns to do this during the time when students were still in the building but due to the continued issues with system constantly running it was determined based on conversation with Universal employees that there was nothing to worry about and in the end the customer was very happy with the final product.  This goes to show the continued training and support Universal Electric strives to do to keep up with the ongoing change and upgrades in today’s electro-mechanical field and the ongoing training our technicians and staff receive as well.
