Element Repairs

Here at TPFay we are looking to save our customers time and money.

Therefore, where it is required because of custom design or special components, we can sometimes offer a repair service for old obsolete or burnt out heating elements. If you need to replace an old immersion heater or formed element, in many cases we can repair or rebuild your old heating element offering you considerable savings.

If you are looking for a repair or replacement please contact us for more information. We will look to save resources and recycle components if it is economical and safe to do so.

We always look to see if we can repair heaters, we do not like to waste materials or resources. Re-use is a valuable saving in some instances.

However, the construction of some existing heaters do not match our design and assembly criteria.

In these instances we use our judgement to determine, if repair of the existing heater is possible but may carry a great deal of risk of failure in service and during manufacture / repair process.

A contingency cost may be required to cover such risk.

The risk, combined with the time and resource required to attempt any repair, may be much greater than the material cost to manufacture a new heater, at this point we will offer the best alternative or replacement design.
