TOOLS TO HELP THE ROUTE BASE PROGRAM

Relatively new to the maintenance professional’s area of expertise is Predictive maintenance (PdM).  The techniques involved are designed to determine the condition of in-service equipment and instrumentation in order to predict when maintenance should be performed. This approach can provide cost savings over other methods of maintenance such as preventive maintenance or time based methods, because these tasks are performed only when needed.

Predictive Maintenance allows for the scheduling of routine periodic corrective maintenance and helps prevent unexpected failures and downtime. The key to predictive maintenance is “the right information at the right time”. By knowing which equipment, processes or lines needs maintenance, planning can be made easier. Spare parts, staff, and test equipment can be available to assist in planned outages instead of emergency work stoppages due to equipment failure that can cause high cost downtime. Other potential advantages include increased equipment and motor life, increased plant safety, fewer accidents with negative impact on the environment, and the  optimization of spare parts handling.

These predictive maintenance programs need tools that are portable and easy to use for a fast paced industrial environment. From route based periodic electrical testing with an offline tester to vibration monitoring with handheld systems to dynamic motor condition monitoring, MDS, Inc. has the tools to put your predictive program on the map and moving forward.
