Proper installation is critical to the long-term performance of your LIGHTNIN mixing equipment. Without proper installation, expensive process downtime and repair can result. To guard against improper installation, a certified LIGHTNIN Technician supervises job-site contractors to ensure that proper installation procedures are followed and the unit is configured properly for start-up. In addition, the presence of a certified LIGHTNIN Technician ensures that installation procedures followed by job-site contractors do not compromise the equipment warranty.

Equipment Parts Audit

A certified LIGHTNIN Service Technician will audit the shipment received from the LIGHTNIN factory to ensure all parts are present and accounted for. Arrangements will be made with the factory to secure any missing parts.

Installation Supervision

Once the job-site contractors have physically installed the equipment, the certified LIGHTNIN Service Technician will inspect all components of the LIGHTNIN equipment for anything that would prevent the successful start-up or operation of the equipment.

The following table explains those areas of inspection:




Each unit's oil seals, gaskets, and gearbox will be inspected for all oil leaks. Corrective actions will be applied as required.

Coupling Alignment

Each unit's high-speed couplings will be realigned and greased per factory specifications.
