Preventative Maintenance

We hope that you are ready to end the year on the right track. In case you need a hand, we have you covered with a range of service options. Contact us for advice on next steps.

Also, for a little holiday cheer, when you schedule a preventative maintenance service with IEC’s field services division in 2020 we will provide you with a complimentary follow-up visit in 2021 – which includes a free post-repair baseline measurement, for more confirmation that your equipment is operating efficiently.

Dirty Jobs
Get down and dirty with our steam cleaning pit crew
 
Did you ever wonder why things work so much better after IEC completes motor service work in our motor shop? You might be surprised that one of our most overlooked and dirtiest jobs is also one of the most important in our company and to our customers. Getting a motor cleaned by our pit crew is key to ensuring that the aspects of service, like repairs and maintenance, improve your motor’s efficiency and reliability. We may not have TV’s Mike Rowe here to recognize the importance of this dirty job, but we sure appreciate our people in the pit!

Meet Arturo Cano, Mechanical Field Services Supervisor

 

Solving problems and providing great service is what our employees commit to every day for you. We are celebrating another exceptional team member this month, Arturo Cano, who represents the best of this commitment.

For 28 years, Arturo has provided a superior customer service experience for many people. From the day he knocked on our door and got a job in our mechanical services group, throughout his work on our mechanical and electrical teams and in the field, Arturo chalks his success up to the power of the teams within the company. He shared that IEC is full of skilled people who know that they can count on each other.

Arturo Cano, IEC Mechanical Field Services Supervisor

Today, Arturo is a Mechanical Field Services Supervisor, we know that many of our customers like you truly appreciate him -- so do we! Arturo shared what he enjoys most about his work. “I like to help people solve problems and prevent catastrophic failures. Customers can rely on all of us at the company to be ethical and committed as we provide solutions.”  

When he’s not out in the field on a job, Arturo enjoys spending time with his family, including fishing and working on cars with his son. Say hi the next time you see him in the field!

Did you Know?
By Scott DeLapp

Have you or your technicians ever had to guess about the need to replace an electric motor? You may have heard (or even said) things like:

  • “The overload relay keeps tripping, must be a bad motor.”
  • “Change that motor, the VFD is showing Ground Fault on the display.”
  • “The motor sounds good, but the amps are high.”
  • “It seems to start ok, then it stops after a few minutes.”
