Review of Universal Supplies (Clydesdale) LTD by Stephen

I posted an advert to have my power washer fixed. It was leaking water and as such had no pressure. An easy job. Universal supplies replied quickly to the advert stating they could take a look at it therefore I arranged to drop it off late one Thursday evening. I was told that they would diagnose the fault by the end of the next week at the latest. Long story short......5 weeks later and they still hadn't touched it. I repeatedly called every week asking for an update and was continually fobbed off and told they would get it to as soon as possible and given timeframes of a few days each time to no avail. After the 5 weeks I called and told them to leave it and that I would collect it the next day. Upon collecting it, I was informed they had now fixed it (even though I told them to leave it) and that I now owed them £50. I was informed they couldn't release it back to me without payment therefore reluctantly I paid. As soon as I got home, I tested it and found that it wasn't fixed!!!!!! And infact it was no different what so ever!! Still completely broken, leaking water with no pressure. I called the next day and demanded my money back. It took a week and a few more phone calls for me to finally get it. It is my recommendation that you do not go anywhere near this company if you value time, money, workmanship, customer services etc. Poor poor company.

Hi Steven,
Thank you for your comments, I would just like to point out a few inconsistencies with your review;
You mentioned that when you dropped it off, you were told it would be diagnosed by the end of the next week which was untrue. We told you that we were extremely busy and had a massive queue of other clients in front of you so it would take some time and we never advised any timeframe. Secondly, after a few weeks, you called up and told us that you were going to collect one Thursday night when you were free which was completely fine but the first week, you didn’t show up to collect it and the second week you told us you were going to leave it with us to investigate further (Adding on two weeks to your 5 week timeline) We managed to get around to looking at it after another few phone calls from yourself and although it was not fixed completely, the pressure was restored, the leaks were due to the machine needing a new head which when we spoke on the phone, you advised you didn’t want to spend a lot of money repairing and fault finding as we went so this was the most cost effective option to get your machine going again. You have had a full refund as an act of goodwill and I can only apologize for the length of time it has taken to look at your machine but really, we did advise from the start how busy we were and it was your choice to pursue the repair and leave it with us.

AC Motors Alternating current (AC) motors are a broad category of motors that include single / multiphase, universal, servo, induction, synchronous, and gearmotor types. There are many advantages in the use of AC motors aside from the wide availability of AC power. In general, AC motors cost less than DC motors. Some types of AC motors do not use brushes or commutators. This eliminates many problems of maintenance and wear, and also eliminates the problem of dangerous sparking. They are also particularly well suited for constant-speed applications. This is because its speed is determined by the frequency of the AC voltage applied to the motor terminals. DC Motors DC motors are configured in many types and sizes, including brushless, servo, and gearmotor types. A motor consists of a rotor and a permanent magnetic field stator. The magnetic field is maintained using either permanent magnets or electromagnetic windings. DC motors are most commonly used in variable speed and torque applications.

Hydraulic & Industrial Hose and Assemblies

Hydraulic Hose We are able to offer a line of high performance hose for applications from the construction and manufacturing industries to agriculture and engineering industries. Hydraulic hose is flexible tube designed with a reinforced structure for the containment of hydraulic fluid under pressure. The hose consists of an outer cover, a reinforcement layer and an inner tube. The pressure ratings are measured in bars. Small diameter hose has high pressure rating. Hose selection is based on the tube material, tube bore diameter to carry flow and wall thickness to withstand internal pressure ie bar. Hydraulic braided hose 1 wire, 2 wire, 3 wire, 4 wire, 6 wire Jetwash Air Hose Fuel Hose Steam Hose Water Hose Shotblast Hose Liquid Mud Suction & Delivery Hose Chemical Suction & Delivery Hose Oil Suction & Delivery Hose Food Quality / Hygienic Hose Production sized of hose range from 4mm (3/16″) to 150mm (6″) Sizes : – 3/16″ (4mm Inside Diametr) – 1/4″ ( 6mm Inside Diameter ) – 3/8″ ( 10mm Inside Diameter ) – 1/2″ ( 12mm Inside Diameter ) – 5/8″ ( 16mm Inside Diameter ) – 3/4″ ( 20mm Inside Diameter ) – 1″ ( 25mm Inside Diameter ) – 1.1/4″ ( 32mm Inside Diameter ) – 1.1/2″ ( 40mm Inside Diameter ) -2″ ( 50mm Inside Diameter ) -2.1/2″ ( 65mm Inside Diameter ) Hose Assemblies We can supply our customers with the hose assembly of their choice.

We supply all types of hydraulic valves from simple shut off valves to precision control valves, used for various applications from hydraulic to marine and industrial. Wide range of manufacturers available. There are many types of hydraulic valves and we supply them all – angle valves admit media at an angle and permit maximum flow. Ball valves provide tight shut-off and reliable control. Block and bleed valves use a small port to depressurize the space between the inlet and outlet. Check valves prevent flow reversal. Control valves modify fluid flow. Types include globe, diaphragm, pinch, knife or gate, needle, butterfly, ball and plug. Directional valves steer process media through selected passages. Drain valves are used to remove surplus fluid from a system or container. Needle valves have a slender, tapered point at the end of a valve stem. Poppet valves open and close ports with a sealing device that includes a disk, cone, or sphere. Pressure relief valves remove excess upstream pressure. By contrast, regulators maintain a constant outlet pressure. Safety valves contain a thermal sensing component that opens or closes in response to temperature changes. Spool valves are actuated by a rotary or piston-like spool that slides back and forth to cover and uncover ports in the housing. Shut off valves close a line to stop flow when a pre-set condition occurs. Stack mounted, sandwich, or modular valves can be assembled to create a valve block. Solenoid valves (hydraulic) are similar to pneumatic solenoid valves except that they control the flow of hydraulic fluid (oil), often at around 3000 psi Available in different materials including, bronze, stainless steel, brass, carbon steel etc.
