DUBAK INSTRUMENTATION CAPABILITIES
Dubak Electrical is one of the highest performing instrumentation contractors in the country with extensive relevant trade and management experience. Our personnel are skilled in both comprehensive electronic and select mechanical side disciplines. We take pride in our ability to meet demanding project schedules and exceed the expectations of our customers. Our experience and skills combine to provide our clients premier service with great depth in expertise. Our capabilities include new construction services, capital expansion, plant relocation, process consolidation, plant maintenance contracts, supplemental maintenance for routine or shutdown/turnaround activity.
All Dubak Electrical Projects are managed using proven techniques that have been extensively developed to ensure complete client fulfillment. These include:
Instrument Procurement and Inventory Control (Care Custody and Control) – We can provide complete instrument inventory management. If required, we can inventory, store and control the distribution of all loose process control instruments.
Document Control – We catalogue and control all instrumentation documents from drawings to calibration data sheets. This function can also include the creation of “Instrument Turnover Packages” which are written checklists, by loop or by system, detailing compliance of all
Scheduling – Detailed schedules can be provided assisting the management teams in assigning the work and tracking progress.
Cost Control – Larger projects may require advanced cost control measures that could include productivity tracking, dedicated onsite material purchasing, and expenditure reporting against proposed budgets.
MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTATION DISCIPLINES
Dubak Electrical can provide the mechanical installation of all process instrumentation. Dubak Electrical accomplishes this installation with highly trained personnel experienced with control system installations.
Dubak Electrical can provide Certified Process Control Technicians for new construction or maintenance. Instrumentation Services we perform:
Instrument Verification – This step involves checking all process controls against customer purchase orders to verify the instrument matches the purchase order and has not been damaged in shipment. This can be done in conjunction with the Dubak Electrical Custody and Control program.
Bench Calibration – This critical step involves verifying all set points, outputs, and ranges against the design criteria prior to installation. Each instrument receives a multi-point check to make sure it performs to owner specification. All control functions are checked, and if required, set points are programmed. Even “factory calibrated” instruments may be checked since shipping and handling can often disturb the settings. Bench calibration allows for a smoother progression in later phases of work such as loop check and start-up. There will be less chance of costly system upsets and delays caused by malfunctioning or non-calibrated hardware.
Loop Check – This step involves signal checks after installation. Technicians go into the field and send actual signals from each transmitting device back to the controllers and from the controllers to the final control element. This can be accomplished using simulated signals (dry) or by filling the system with inert fluids or gases to simulate the actual process conditions (wet). Loop checks let the owner know everything has been installed properly, is functioning and ready for start-up.
Start-up & Commissioning – The final step in the process is start-up. Having verified all loops and control functions the technician can now “start-up” each system. This is accomplished with engineering support from the owner or owner’s representatives. Specialty vendors may also be called in to support any non-conventional hardware.
Each step of this process is documented per owner requirements. All calibration test standards may be certified by an independent calibration laboratory and are fully traceable.
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Dubak Electrical has expertise in the maintenance of process control related equipment using a wide variety of applications (analog, digital, pneumatic, hydraulic, programmable logic control, distributed control systems).
