Whether it be a license, or fully managed service, Summit’s web-based compliance solution can help!



The MEB+ analysis is a proprietary model that elevates the PSM-related reports to provide customers with a comprehensive perspective of the efficiency of the industrial refrigeration system. The MEB+ includes not only calculations from the material and mass energy balance, but also overlays additional calculations, NDT outputs and mechanical integrity findings to help isolate areas for improvement that help maximize ROI in capital planning.

Customized Training

We can develop and deliver customized training that would be additive to any required PSM-related training. Training topics vary from basic ammonia safety to more technical content.

Engine Room Staffing

Summit Refrigeration can help provide temporary engine room staffing to assist with short or long-term engine room operator duties.
