MGH EQUIPMENT SERVICES
MGH Equipment Services was established in May 1999. Since inception, we have specialized in pumping equipment and other activities including general engineering, refurbishment, service, installation and the supply of process equipment.
Since the late nineties, MGH Equipment Services has serviced numerous industries such as petrochemical, sugar, iron and steel pulp and paper. This has resulted in securing contracts for the overhaul of numerous pump sets, compressors, steam turbines and a variety of static equipment.
Laser alignment and installation of new equipment is also a large part of the services that MGH Equipment Services offers, which have become very popular amongst project engineering and maintenance teams.
The MGH workshop is located in New Germany Pinetown with a workshop facility that covers an area of 2000 square meters. MGH Equipment Services has the necessary tooling machines and expertise to service most types of rotating equipment.
Specialising in rotating equipment
and related activities.
It was identified that there was a need for a company to supply good service and a repair facility to the end users of rotating plant machinery. The MGH Equipment Services staff are all familiar with the petrochemical industry. Due to the hazards and stringent requirements of the oil industry, our staff’s workmanship is of a high standard and in line with API benchmarks and requirements. To date, numerous turbines, pumps, gearboxes, fans, tank mixers and compressors have been serviced and commissioned successfully.
All service and repairs are performed with the mind set of identifying the root cause of failure and reporting to the end user how we believe we can reduce the number of outages and increase the average time between failures.
MGH has since expanded its customer base and are presently servicing numerous industries. All equipment serviced is done so whilst keeping dimensions and tolerances in line with original equipment manufacturers specifications and API standards.
New Equipment Installations:
Installation and leveling of new API pump sets has performed a large part of our business. MGH Equipment Services has set procedures and standards that ensure that the equipment and support bases are suitable for the proposed application and that alignments are achievable before grouting. Pipe stress is checked by laser, and recommendations and assistance is given to the pipe fitters if pipe stress is evident.
