Your challenge

Whether it be for adapting to increased application requirements, a more sustainable business model or simply for efficiency reasons: well thought-out product life cycle management is able to capitalise on the fact that even at the end of a product's life cycle, many products can still be reused and often only need to be upgraded or refurbished to a certain extent. This can ultimately save customers money and contribute to a more sustainable circular economy. But it also requires a sparring partner with a suitable repair department and the honesty and ability to assess the cost-benefit ratio for the operator.

Our service

With KROHNE's Update and Upgrade services, we help operators extend the service life of their measuring devices, reduce downtimes and improve the diagnostic functions of existing instruments. When developing and manufacturing our products, we aim to offer our customers the best possible price-performance ratio and to provide instrumentation that is as durable as possible. For this reason, many of our products can still be retrofitted many years after installation, can be updated electronically or can be completely refurbished mechanically.

This service applies not only to KROHNE devices, but also to third-party products. For example, if old electromagnetic flowmeters can no longer be properly maintained due to a lack of spare parts, KROHNE can carry out a flowmeter retrofitting by upgrading the flow sensor with state-of-the-art electronics without having to replace the entire flowmeter. This saves the customer additional costs and even downtime, allowing them to maximise the sustainability of their financial and material resources for their instrumentation.
