Benefits of proactive maintenance
How much does unexpected downtime cost your facility per minute, hour, or day? In your facility, how much of that unexpected downtime can you prevent?
More than 55% of maintenance resources and activities of an average facility are still reactive.
Why should you move to a proactive approach in maintenance:
- Predictability: give maintenance staff time to schedule required repairs and acquire parts.
- Safety: take faulty equipment offline before a hazardous condition occurs.
- Revenue: fewer unexpected and serious failures, helping to prevent production stoppages that cut into the bottom line.
- Increased maintenance intervals: life of equipment can be extended and maintenance can be scheduled by need.
- Reliability: fewer unexpected or catastrophic failures – problem areas can be anticipated before failure.
- Peace of mind: build confidence in maintenance schedules, budgeting and productivity estimates.

Maintenance program types
Making the right maintenance choices and investments can help minimize surprises. Download now the paper where we list reactive, preventive (PM), predictive (PdM), and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) as the maintenance program types and learn the differences among them.

In the past, establishing a proactive maintenance program has required a lot of tedious work and often just doesn’t work the way we think it should. The goal of a successful proactive maintenance program is to have easy access to historical data for each piece of critical equipment, so measurement trends can be monitored and maintenance downtime planned.

See where the issue is
When you can see problems before they become emergencies, your job becomes much easier. You can focus your time and budget on the areas of greatest need and you can proactively keep facilities, assets and systems running instead of continually reacting to unexpected failures.
With infrared inspections you can find mission-critical problems before they occur, you find them faster and more efficiently while thoroughly documenting problem areas for additional follow-up.

Extend machinery lifetime
Let’s now dive deeper into your machinery lifetime.
The lifetime of machinery is dependent on several factors. Download here an overview of ways on how to detect potential problems that decrease the machinery lifetime and to determine the cause.
The cause of short machinery lifetime could be misaligment. When you reduce misalignment, the expected bearing life increases which means the time between repairs can also increase. Stop wasting money on unnecessary replacement parts, repair time and unplanned downtime.
Motor and Drive troubleshooting
A part of a maintenance program can be Motor and Drive troubleshooting.
Download now our booklet on Motor and Drive troubleshooting: from basic principles to safety measurements and documenting condition.
Next to Motor and Drive troubleshooting, process calibration can be another part of a maintenance program.
Your industry can be a tough and unforgiving environment. Whether you’re ensuring regulatory compliance, performing preventive maintenance, or testing equipment, you need high quality, cost-effective products that don’t sacrifice safety or uptime.
