Apex partners with industry-leading rebuild shops that specialize in compressors and vacuum pumps.
The process begins with disassembly and inspection. Once inspection of all wear surfaces is compared to factory specifications, they will determine machining options, if necessary. Next, the compressor/vacuum pump is cleaned and re-assembled with the necessary new parts. Finally, clearances are set to factory specifications and the compressor/vacuum pump is painted and tagged.
Need us to come to your site to disconnect/reconnect the compressor to your system? No problem. We also offer hauling to and from our rebuild partners.
Our prefabricated solutions save you time, money and space.
We can custom fit a prefabricated solution for just about any application. These systems mean there’s less disruption to your organization and less mess. Plus, we’re able to complete the build more quickly without the possibility of contaminating your site and the hassle of site work permits. Once the system is complete, installation is quick and easy.
