Discussion:
Miretti vs Pyroban or other

In the UK pyroban seems to be the favourite for ATEX approved material handling products. Problem is they are so difficult to deal with and never seem to keep stock of spare parts. i know a lot of parts are bespoke but even the basic ignition switch can take over a week for delivery. Has anyone had experience of miretti ATEX systems? how do they compare? Is there traing and systems much different to that of pyroban. Is there any other good alternatives worth dealing with?

I have been on the training course many times. The training book states "only motors fitted with brush access plugs may be opened by service contract providers or end users for the purpose of brush inspection and carbon extraction".

Motors converted using other methods should be sent to an authorised repair company.

Our motor had been converted by other methods hence the reason of sending it for repair.

You can change Brushes yourself if you've been on the pyroban course, just need to invest in the smoke generator equipment to confirm the motors sealed correctly after completing.

I'm not trying to be cheeky (please, no offence intended) but have either of you been on the pyroban technicians course?
I find the time scale quite understandable when you see the scope of what their doing, you get a good tour of the shoreham factory too.

We don't get many trouble shooting problems as such. Mainly parts availability, battery connectors and key switches, you would expect these to be a standard items. We waited over a week. We had to send a motor away just to have a set of brushes replaced, because it needed to be resealed and tested. It looked like a standard brush gear guard without any vents. You can only imagine how long we waited for this back.

I've personally never seen anything other than pyroban here.
What trouble have you had with pyroban? Personally I've found them nothing but helpful, especially with technical problems.
Think parts are always going to be an issue whatever provider you use due to the 'bespoke' nature of everything. A lot of pyroban parts are standard oem which they modify then send back to you.
