Many clients choose to have an ongoing program for routine actuator refurbishment service. We typically refurbish and return actuators to our clients within two weeks, though rush services are routinely provided. If damaged or worn parts are discovered during refurbishment and replacement parts are required, pricing for these parts will be discussed with clients prior to installation. Replaced parts are returned with the refurbished actuator for owner review.
REFURBISHMENT BY EXCHANGE (RBE)
Georgia Western offers a unique Refurbishment By Exchange (RBE) program for all SMB electric actuators. Our unique program saves our clients valuable time and money as we are able to build an identical actuator to replace an existing installed unit that requires repair or refurbishment. With one trip to the existing installed unit, our clients are able to remove the original unit and install the RBE unit. The removed unit is returned to our shop for a standard disassemble and inspection and associated parts billing for damaged parts are charged in addition to the RBE fee. Many clients find this a safe and cost effective way to repair critical actuators.
