Buy UIG Refurbished Plants and Used Equipment with Confidence:
  • UIG is not a typical "used plant dealer".  UIG staff members work with potential customers to determine whether their needs are most cost effectively met with new equipment, used equipment, or a combination of reconditioned and new equipment. 
  • All offerings, whether new, used, or reconditioned and upgraded, are engineered solutions developed after thorough review of customer requirements, priorities and evaluation criteria.  

  • Our goal is to supply systems that meet our customers' needs and desires as fully as possible - including production rates, product purities, supply pressures, reliability, installed cost, operating cost and on-schedule delivery of equipment and services.   

  • Used plants are normally sold inspected and refurbished. Instrumentation and and control systems are typically upgraded.  Mechanical equipment, such as compressors and motors are overhauled or replaced with new, depending upon expected operating conditions at the new site and customer preferences.

  • Available used plants may be modified to accommodate changes in production rate, required product purities, and product delivery pressures.  Modifications can be made to reflect differences in electrical power system characteristics (voltage and Hz) and atmospheric conditions (temperature, pressure, humidity). 

  • UIG can make modifications to accommodate additional products.  UIG has added argon recovery and/ or argon purification systems to oxygen plants and added product liquefiers to gas-only plants.  UIG has converted "reversing" plants to molecular sieve front-end cleanup (pre-purification) systems to permit higher recovery of argon and/ or higher production rates for nitrogen.  

  • UIG provides necessary engineering, procurement, transportation and field support services to clients.  Most plants can be supplied on a full turnkey basis.  In many cases, purchasers choose to arrange transportation and perform some of the installation work themselves.  In these cases, UIG provides field supervision and advisory services to support purchaser engineering, operations and maintenance resources.

  • Very importantly, UIG offers process guarantees and mechanical warranties on its refurbished used plants and equipment.
