One of the lines businesses try to walk is getting value for purchased equipment without paying too much. This line forces a purchasing manager to assign numbers to ethereal concepts that have no intrinsic numbers available. When calculating the bottom line, though, too many purchasing decision makers have an alarming tendency to underestimate the impact of these estimates when overestimating them is the better direction in which to err. When dealing with the purchase of pressure equipment in particular, the difference that comes with choosing a specialized supplier over a general equipment vendor can result in huge benefits and vastly reduced costs. There are three areas a purchaser should closely scrutinize to ensure that his or her company is getting quality pressure equipment.
The simple truth is that you do not get a good product from a bad manufacturer. A good pressure equipment vendor is specialized. This specialization pays dividends when the vendor can actually help steer the client in the best direction for the situation, while a general equipment vendor is simply an order taker. Additionally, having a track record and experience in not only making, but also implementing, such equipment means the manufacturer has seen problems and chosen design elements to minimize them, as opposed to simply choosing the fastest or least expensive manufacture route.
This is a tag team of assets that can multiply profits made with any equipment. Efficiency is a product of having the perfect piece of equipment instead of one that will likely perform the task. Even tiny details can affect profits. A coupling that takes a minute instead of a couple of seconds to connect or disconnect costs the company a few cents in employee pay each time it is used. Multiply this times the number of times used over the life of the equipment and the number could become significant. Durability is a product of quality design and manufacture.
While every company pays lip service to the desire to keep employees safe, too many fail to realize that money paid into a safer equipment option is like an insurance premium that protects the company's bottom line. Accidents happen, and they can devastate a company if they happen too often. Choosing the right equipment that suits the task perfectly is the first step in ensuring safety.
Businesses exist to turn a profit. Any business in the market for pressure equipment would be well advised to turn to a specialized manufacturer and installer of such equipment to multiply profits and minimize the risk of accidents.
