Field Service

Installation, commissioning, inspection and maintenance - with our support for the best result!

The EKATO Group's service technicians provide flexible support directly at your site anywhere in the world. The team comprises more than 20 technicians worldwide, around half of whom operate from Germany.

From planning to commissioning


The service on our agitators usually includes the following activities:

  • Supervision of installation work to ensure proper installation and fitting steps
  • Checking the installation, including checking the mechanical completion
  • Checking the connections and cable connections of instruments etc.
  • Accompaniment of a first test run in air and / or water
  • Support during commissioning

Process plants

Unlike agitators, the EKATO Group’s process plants are supplied complete with control system and operating software. The commissioning of such a system is therefore slightly different compared to that of a normal agitator. In these cases, EKATO offers extended support during commissioning.

The commissioning of the process systems is accompanied by a process engineer, for example from research and development.

This includes a test run in water and an I/O test. The system is then checked together with you in accordance with the functional description. EKATO accompanies you during the first batches and supports you in optimizing parameters and limit values. Together with you, process conditions are analyzed and optimized wherever possible.

We ensure that your agitators, mechanical seals and supply systems are always in perfect condition!
We provide you with active support on site:

Remote maintenance support from our service technicians

On-site support from a service technician is not always possible, for example due to the COVID-19 virus and the associated travel and contact restrictions. For these special circumstances, we offer our innovative “Remote Service Support” to replace on-site support in the best possible way. In the event of commissioning, the customer is guided and instructed by our trained specialist staff using the latest technology.

This ensures smooth commissioning and acceptance of our products. In addition, this option is used to maintain the training of regional service technicians worldwide, which previously took place at the head office.
