* Mechanical Integrity and Reporting

An effective Mechanical Integrity (MI) program will aid in determining the potential risks and hazards within the facility, and also assist in prioritizing repairs and maintenance.

Multiple Federal and State regulations require MI programs to ensure the safe operation of process equipment, and PermaCold is very active in the training and documentation process for many clients. With an MI program in place, costs can be dramatically reduced by strategically planning when resources and down-time should be scheduled.

PermaCold offers MI inspections and reporting, plus the ability to perform any needed repairs and maintenance.

* Process Safety Management

A Process Safety Management (PSM) program is an integral part of many refrigeration facilities, and PermaCold actively assists many clients with their PSM needs.

As with the MI (Mechanical Integrity) program, the goal is to keep the facility safe and operating efficiently. It also provides a plan for the facility in the event of a hazardous materials release. The program requires comprehensive training in addition to maintaining controls required to avoid hazmat incidents.

* Overhaul Department

Our overhaul team is known for its highly capable service -- we pick up, overhaul, and re-commission equipment over and above required specifications. Boasting decades of experience, our team is second to none and a trusted resource for our clients.
