Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is essentially planned equipment maintenance to prevent deterioration, breakdown, or unscheduled shutdown. Years of experience in design and field-testing determine maintenance intervals that keep air system equipment in optimum operating condition, ensuring maximum efficiency. Preventive maintenance also provides valuable feedback regarding overall system performance.

Preventive maintenance goals include a reduction in equipment failures, a reduction in magnitude of the failures and repair costs, reduced product loss or production downtime, and reducing deterioration in the production capacity of equipment.

Benefits of Preventive Maintenance:

  • Increase production, reduce downtime
  • Reduce the number of major and repetitive repairs
  • Provide lower repair cost than breakdown maintenance
  • Fewer product rejects
  • Better work control and resource utilization
  • Better spare parts control/minimum inventory
