Predictive Maintenance is Proven To Protect Your Assets AND Lower Your Maintenance Costs!
New England SpinTech specializes in predictive maintenance services for a variety of businesses and organizations. Our Predictive Maintenance customers include power plants, manufacturing plants, hospitals, colleges, water treatment plants, biotech and pharmaceutical industries, and much more. Our vibration based predictive maintenance services are performed on bearings, gear boxes, pumps, fans and shafts, and more to accurately assess their condition based on the vibration, heat, and noise.
Predictive Maintenance services are generally performed while the machines are in service, minimizing or eliminating downtime. The data levels are then compared with baseline and industry standards to trend and determine the severity of the problem. This data can indicate where and when failures may occur. Accurately assessing and interpreting the data is a complex process that requires specially trained, experienced technicians. By identifying the location, frequency, and severity of the problem we can recommend actions to take before a failure occurs. Acceptance Testing (the process of recording baseline data when equipment is new or newly rebuilt) will identify the initial machine condition before it is put into service or the warranty expires. When followed by a properly scheduled Predictive Maintenance Program, the condition of your machinery will always be known allowing you to address pending problems before a failure occurs.
Many Years of Combined Vibration Analysis Experience By Our Certified Engineers and Technicians Will Identify and Correct Problems BEFORE Failure
As knowledge spreads, vibration analysis and other predictive maintenance technologies are becoming more and more popular, and rightly so – they work. With this new awareness it seems that many different types of companies are now offering these services to their customers. This makes choosing a proper partner more and more challenging. Below are some things to consider when choosing the best way to incorporate Predictive Maintenance into your maintenance strategies and help you manage your maintenance costs. Here are a few things to consider.
Do it yourself
Setting up an internal program may seem like the best way at first, but consider these facts. Training and experience can literally take years.
- You may hire someone already trained but that person could leave – along with your Predictive Maintenance program.
- Even loyal long term employees can be out of work for an extended period of time for various reasons. Can this derail your program?
- Are you aware of the time and expense it takes to bring your program up to speed?
Outsource your program
This is a choice that more and more maintenance professionals are considering. This is the most popular option but there are still important issues you should consider:
- Is the company I choose truly committed to predictive maintenance or is this just an add-on service offered because of the increase in the popularity of these services?
- Does this company have a team of highly trained individuals to support my ongoing program AND emergency needs? Or are their services dependent on only one or two people?
- Do they know mechanical systems, know the inner workings of machinery to understand and diagnose your problems accurately?
