IMS doors are a part of the safety system. Routines for maintenance and service have to be followed for safe operation. After years of operation every installation needs an upgrade.

IMS Lifecycle Service performs upgrades to the watertight doors for safe operation.  We can offer the following upgrade services:            – Old system has leakage; doors are not in the correct position due to a full time “pressurized system”. – The wheels & rails need to be replaced after years of operation. – The rubber gaskets have to be replaced. (Depending on the use of the door.) – The oil and filter can be rearranged for easier access. – The control system can be upgraded with new functions. – The Safety Strip (protection) with laser beam can be installed on all IMS doors, and also on other makers’ doors.
IMS will issue a certificate which can be provided to any third party.
For these services please send an e- mail to one of our coordinators: • Service E-mail: service@imstec.no

IMS has developed a special valve block for refit. Upgrade of old system with leakage: Doors are not in the correct position due to a full time “pressurized system”. IMS has developed a special valve block for this refit job which enables the doors to operate according to today’s standard – pressurized when in operation.

IMS watertight doors currently being produced are equipped with wheels of hardened steel and rails made of weldox, duplex or super duplex. The wheels (& rails) need to be replaced after years of operation. This is to ensure that the doors are in the right position, and to avoid excessive wear on the rubber gasket.

IMS customized rubber gaskets for refit. In our files we have the size of each door installed, and when the rubber gaskets have to be replaced after years of operation. We can customize rubber gaskets for your project if you give us the door no., or the yard and hull no for your installation.

IMS Automation has developed a new computer based control system for cruise & offshore installations for refit. On installations with many doors, the mimic panel can be replaced with the new computer based control system, which enables new functions and remote control.

IMS Safety Strip. Safety Strip (protection) with laser beam can be installed for added user safety. (This has been done on several offshore installations.)
