This particular refinery was put in the difficult position of having to rely on an out-of-town OEM to service its Protection System—resulting in a lack of timely response, higher costs, and limited flexibility or collaboration regarding scheduling during outages. Because of their dissatisfaction, the turnaround planning group decided to look for alternatives.

Based on its existing excellent relationship with Scallon Controls and the fact that there was a Master Service Agreement in place, this refinery decided to award the project to us. While they were already an existing Scallon Controls customer for valves and valve services (on the customer’s Approved Vendor List), they were not aware of our capabilities to service top Turbo Machinery Protection Systems. Now they are!

“We chose Scallon Controls because of the cost savings and high level of customer service and confidence. We incurred no travel time or per diem charges (which amounts to quite a bit for larger three-week long projects), and quick response—from phone call to arriving onsite—if emergency work was needed. One long-term benefit is having an established relationship to help us respond to changing needs, whether a technical question or replacing components in the field.”
