Refurbishment and Repairs

We have made changes to our manufacturing processes and supply chain which enable us to manufacture small batches of components at competitive prices to reduce potential obsolescence problems and also allow us to offer refurbishment and repair services for products and panels at a lower cost than replacing for new giving significant lifetime cost benefits.

Our own manufactured products have been designed or changed to allow us to refurbish most models back to operate like knew and issue with a warranty at a cost effective price compared to replacing for new.

With supply chain improvements we have also managed to provide solutions which have overcome obsolescence issues of other manufacturers parts and when cost effective, have reverse engineered pcb’s that were no longer available to keep an otherwise reliable part working.  We are continually improving our niche sub contract network expand our capabilities.

Back to base refurbishments and spares kits can be provided for our own and in some cases other manufacturers parts including, but not limited to:

  • Refuelling Control Valves
  • Bulk Loaders / Dry Break Couplings
  • Float Switches
  • Mechanical Level Gauges (MLG’s)
  • Control Valves
  • Control and Alarm Panels

Understanding Basic Magnetic Reed Switch Operations for Float Switches

Magnetic Reed Switches and Float SwitchesFloat switches are fundamentally a basic level control product often containing a reed switch to perform the required level control action.  The most confusing part in selecting a float switch is determining the magnetic reed...

Types of Float Switches

Different Types of Float Switch and Their PricesThere are a number of different types of float switches, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.  Most designs can be made to different specifications to suit the ruggedness requirements of an application....

Train level measurement, gauges and indicators

To solve a specific problem with access and the lack of height between a fuel tank and the trains body, AMS have modified the head of our approved level sensors to allow fitting in confined spaces. This development also removed the need for the transmitter to be located in a separate box on the side of the tank and allowed the sensor to be wired directly to the indicators, saving significant additional costs in materials and wiring time.

Train level measurement and control

Advances in the way instrumentation can be powered due to processing capabilities at reduced power levels, combined with the ever-continuing miniaturisation of electronics capability, has created the opportunity for rail companies to consider more modern electronic/digital technology as an alternative to the traditional methods for level measurement.

Refuelling Control Valve and Dry Break Coupling

The Refuelling Control Valve is a float operated servo valve, designed to limit the amount of liquid fed into a tank to a specific level.The coupling prevents fuel leakage when fuelling a locomotive and automatically closes when the fuelling hose coupling is removed.
