Predictive Preventive Maintenance Benefits.
In maritime operations, whether commercial or recreational, the impact of breakdowns and unscheduled repairs can quickly escalate when towing to a port of refuge or flying in mechanics. Marine Surveyors Cayman can provide Predictive Preventive Maintenance Surveys for your vessels, using Thermography Surveys to provide early detection of potential breakdowns.
As part of a Predictive Preventive Maintenance Survey, we develop Predictive Preventive Maintenance Schedules which, when properly implemented, provide the “trending” data of equipment temperature changes over time.
These temperature change trends, over time, are a real-world view of wear and problems.
In most cases,”Seeing” these trends gives managers, engineers and mechanics the ability to “Predict” maintenance problems and pro-actively plan “Preventive” maintenance instead of waiting for equipment to completely fail.
Ely Lilly, the pharmaceuticals giant, conducted an extensive maintenance technology study (for rotating equipment 1991) at their facilities in Indianapolis, Indiana USA.
The Ely Lilly study found that Thermography detected maintenance problems “more readily than vibration analysis”.
The Ely Lilly study also confirmed and quantified a similar study done previously by the Miller Brewing Company.
Ely Lilly concluded that, although vibration analysis is a more powerful (and more expensive) technology than Thermography on rotating equipment, if Thermography is used every one to two months as a screening technology, the cost to monitor equipment is greatly reduced.
In land-based commercial or industrial operations, (as the Ely Lilly and Miller Brewing studies demonstrated) breakdowns of any equipment can impact immediate profits as well as long-term business success when production stops, product is ruined, clients needs are not met and reputation suffers.
For businesses, loss of air conditioning or refrigeration can result in lost productivity and revenues, spoiled perishables and subsequent disposal costs.
Homeowners are not immune to the consequences of delayed or forgotten maintenance.
Ever-mounting costs of energy reduces money for the necessities as well as the pleasures in life.
Loss of air conditioning can effect health, performance on the job, as well as children’s abilities to function at school.
Whether you own a marine vessel, a land-based business, or are a homeowner, Predictive Preventive Maintenance can be applied to your assets, keeping them and you functioning efficiently while minimizing downtime and cost.
