Harvest: Emergency service, assist local retailers in service.quarter 4.
Each piece of equipment in the program has a WSC proprietary procedure. Each
procedure contains different check points specific to the OEM's recommendations
and our empirical data. The equipment specific procedures contain but are not
limited to the two generic categories below.
Electrical Inspection: Trained technicians follow the path of electron flow through
conductors, control wiring and circuitry to drive motors. Inspection of electrical
enclosures, control boxes, seals and gaskets are also included in the electrical
inspection. The conclusion of the electrical inspection is a meg-ohm test conducted
to determine the health and balance of internal motor windings. Inside of the motor;
the energy converts from electron flow to magnetic energy which is where the
mechanical inspection begins.
Mechanical Inspection: Technicians follow the path of physical energy as it is
generated in the motor winding and transferred to the motor shaft. There, we follow
the path of mechanical energy through bearings, as it is transferred to chains, belts
or gear boxes. Condition and adjustment of all power transmission components are
inspected and recorded paying special attention to vibration and temperature. Our
practical and proprietary inspecting methods have proven to be thorough and
effective over a broad range of wine production equipment; regardless of its type or
Communication to client: The Equipment Management Report will communicate
the information gathered during the inspections and recommendations will be made if
the equipment does not meet WSC equipment guidelines for performance or
reliability. WSC also works with local retailers to identify equipment which may have
been identified by the OEM to require upgrades or modifications.
