The challenge

Chivas Brothers requires easy ordering of a range of devices including flowmeters, level sensors for overfill prevention, pressure transmitters and temperature probes.

Senior Control Engineer Stewart Banks says being able to access device information is also important: “We deal with a lot of functional safety issues, so we’re looking at the safety files to get the failure rates as well as the operational manuals to set up instruments because we do all that ourselves.”

The solution

Through endress.com, Chivas Brothers can buy products and spare parts, check orders and download documentation. Stewart can view all previous transactions, whether he ordered online or not and check the status of his orders.

“What I like about it is that we can use it to get quick and accurate costs on potential projects without having to bother anyone,” says Stewart. “It speeds up the process for those small to medium-sized projects and we can then order the products directly.”
