Equipping means more than just supplying industrial tools and machinery. In many cases, the order processing and picking requires qualified engineering support, including in particular work with the design programs and configuration tools, analysis of design documentation and even development of own schemes and drawings supporting the product. This all is required to ensure the highest level of compliance with the real needs, as well as seamless installation and subsequent long-term operation.
Even selection of a steam trap, which seems to be a relatively simple product, requires collection and further analysis of a large amount of information: what other equipment it is planned to be used with, what will be the steam flow rate and steam pressure, condensate line pressure, etc. The things get even more complicated when it comes to more complex devices such as control and safety valves, in addition to packaged units being all-in-one engineering systems by their nature.
