Maintenance is one of the four maintenance philosophies
available to ensure the reliability of any asset.
It ensures that the asset can fulfill its function
and it focuses primarily on maintaining equipment
based on its known condition. Each of these strategies:
reactive, preventative, and predictive has a place
in an optimized maintenance plan, the distribution
of the mix being dependent on many factors.
maintenance is often the most attractive concept,
since action is only taken when the asset shows a
progression of failure, making it a cost effective
There are a number of benefits to utilizing a PdM
program that include:
- Increased motivation of the workforce through
- Equipment may be shut down before severe and
secondary damage occurs or can be run to failure
- Production can be modified to extend the asset's
life i.e. until the next planned shutdown.
- Required maintenance work can be planned.
All of the above lead to increased
safety, plant output, and availability and lead to
in final product quality.
Condition monitoring facilitates
Predictive Maintenance. We subscribe to a multi-technology
approach to condition
monitoring, where vibration analysis, oil analysis,
ultrasonic leak detection, balancing, alignment,
infrared thermography, performance analysis and inspection
tasks all provide necessary input.
Condition monitoring is a knowledge-based activity,
so for it to be successful and sustainable, we subscribe
to comprehensive skills training. Any successful
predictive maintenance program, not only has a technology
element, but also a human element where experience
and education come together. It is this human element
that PEMCo Predictive Technologies pride's itself.
We are not just another contractor - we are your
partners and co-workers!
