Greaves’ Services

Trust the industry experts

Alongside our wide experience of industrial mixers and mixing, our focus is to work with customers to help them achieve true efficiency in their individual mixing requirements. Whether this is batch process speed, mixing flexibility, scalability or a balance to achieve the best of all worlds, Greaves delivers.

Spare Parts

Ready availability of the correct spare parts is a factor that can be overlooked but is always critical to ensuring continuity of production.

Greaves OEM parts are designed to deliver optimum performance, durability and suitability for your process. To maximise performance only OEM replacement parts should be used. Certificates can be requested at point of order for special items, e.g. food grade seals.

Greaves provides a recommended critical spares list in the hand over pack with all equipment.

We typically hold stock of 20,000+ parts at any time but cannot guarantee to offer same week availability of every customer’s critical items. We therefore recommend each customer holds stock onsite of spare parts for their equipment.

Our sales team will be pleased to discuss your requirements and propose a package to meet your needs.

Mixer Safety and Maintenance

Greaves mixers are designed with safety and reliability as a primary requirement. The best way of ensuring optimum performance post installation is regular scheduled service.

Greaves MixCare is a structured support programme to give customers confidence in the ongoing safety and efficiency of their mixing equipment.

Our sales team will be pleased to discuss your site-specific requirements and propose a package that meet your needs.
