Without a thermographer in your planned maintenance process, your facility risks downtime. You may even be inviting accidents and a larger disaster.
Many facilities and maintenance professionals want a predictive maintenance strategy. But they have to perform basic asset preservation first. This requires planned tasks, testing, and regular inspections.
Is your business is considering a migration to a predictive culture? You’ll need to redirect your approach. Performing tasks on a strict schedule alone is over. You need a solid assessment of individual usage and business needs.
Here’s why you need a dependable testing approach to get to the next level:
Keeping employees, visitors, and tenants safe has to be the first priority in any business.
Many professionals still believe that zero injuries is the goal of their safety programs. According to federal regulations, this is incorrect. The true goal is zero incidents, not injuries.
Test mechanical and electrical equipment. Then you can head off any incidents before they occur.
The Goal of Predictive Maintenance
In many ways the old culture of preventative maintenance is obsolete. While this strategy may have prevented failure it falls short in too many other areas.
Predictive maintenance is an ideal because of the holistic impact it has on business. Unplanned downtime in industrial businesses is estimated to cost $50 billion annually.
Predictive maintenance doesn’t just shed unplanned downtime though. Predictive maintenance also incorporates energy usage, lifecycle management, and capital expenses.
But while many businesses understand the benefits of a predictive approach they don’t realize the path to get there. Without solid information on performance predictive maintenance is impossible.
Don’t Miss Major Issues
Your technicians may be missing major mechanical and electrical issues. They also may be wasting valuable time working on equipment that should be replaced.
While preventative maintenance worked toward the equipment’s standards, predictive maintenance is different.
With testing, you can measure usage and issues. You’ll be evaluating systems based on your business needs and usage, not just manufacturer’s standards.
Infrared Thermography Testing Is Essential
Predictive maintenance is an ideal for most facilities professionals.
There is an initial investment. But the ROI (return on investment) is the greatest when performing a predictive strategy.
Many business professionals find that their preventative maintenance approach isn’t good enough. It may be nothing more than a break and fix mentality with planned tasks sprinkled in.
For the best in asset preservation, integrated capital expense, and business productivity these old methods won’t do.
A thermographer will measure performance. It will also head off possible issues.
It is impossible to employ predictive maintenance without it.
