Best engineering practice
Always follow best engineering practice, use the correct tools for the job and refer to and follow the instructions provided by equipment manufacturers when disassembling and reassembling any items of plant and equipment.
Always ensure equipment is suitably isolated / depressurised and off-line before commencing any work, that all site health and safety procedures are being followed including, but not limited to, safety procedures around lifting, support of items, contact with hazardous substances and supervision of work.
Contact your local James Walker company or your plant and equipment OEM if you have any doubts over any stage of product removal and refitting.
