Equipment Preservation and Stabilization

Industry research shows that failure rates of electronic and electrical devices exposed to sulfates, chlorides and other contaminants exponentially increase as the level of contamination increases.*

Proper decontamination begins with rapid and thorough equipment preservation and stabilization.

Time is of the essence when preserving and stabilizing equipment. Minutes and hours can be critical to the future reliability of the impacted equipment, and careful attention must be given to the unique characteristics of business critical electronic and electrical equipment. Simple measures, such as not energizing contaminated equipment before it has been deemed safe to turn on, installing dehumidifiers to reduce moisture and stabilize the environment, and applying metal preserving compounds designed to stop or slow down corrosion are effective preservation techniques that are critical for all equipment stakeholders to be aware of.

Where We Operate

Acquired by Envista Forensics in 2017, a global leader in forensic consulting, AREPA’s European operations were combined with Envista’s well-known equipment restoration line, TekPro Global, in North America. Collectively, AREPA has one of the largest, and most experienced teams of restoration specialists in the industry.
