Our system of restoration
Equipment Preservation and Protocol
By controlling relative humidity and ambient temperature, mitigation work process of the damaged electronic/electrical/mechanical equipment can be preserved against further damage and for further investigation and appropriate electronic repair services. Cowan restoration services will prepare electronics restoration services protocol by getting the in house technical team, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and service contractors involved in the electronic restoration process
We have successfully restored electronics/electrical/mechanical exposed to every conceivable contamination and damage including: floodwater (including total submersion), corrosive soot from fire, acid vapours, mould, environmental contaminants, pollution caused by production processes, sea salts and power fluctuations.
Cowan electronic/electrical/mechanical restoration services cost a fraction of the machine’s replacement costs. That is only one economic consideration. Replacing sophisticated electronic machinery often takes from six to 18 months. This wreaks havoc with every aspect of your business, causing lose valuable contracts, clients and production. Under most circumstances, Cowan’s decontamination and restoration work can be measured in weeks, limiting business interruption and losses.
The initial assessment of the visual inspection determined the items which are restorable and non-restorable, the restorable items further assessed with our detail inspection with thermal imaging, digital microscopic and insulation and earth leakage testing where required. The initial report with the cause of the damage, mitigation work, detail list of the items including photos and the proposed restoration method for the damaged. The progress report reflects the percentage of the work completed and the additional findings during the restoration process and the final report will confirm the final status of the items and additional notes.
Ultrasonic cleaning uses high frequency sound waves between 20KHz – 200MHz generating cavitation in the de-ionized water. The resulting energetic bubble action penetrates blind holes, cracks, and recesses to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination including oil, grease, soot and rust. This process increases the efficiency of the decontamination process of the electronic control boards and mechanical parts.
The Electronic/electrical and mechanical contents restoration process comprises “decontamination”, “troubleshooting of electronics, electrical and mechanical faults, repairing of electronic component level, mechanical and electrical repair”, “functionality testing” and “electrical safety testing as per AS/NZS3760”.
