LED lighting uses up to 80% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb.
Preventative maintenance can help a plant reduce equipment failure, reduce downtime, and improve productivity.
Part 2 of 3: Although there are many factors to consider with preventative maintenance, an IR electrical inspection should certainly be part of the mix.
By waiting until a problem occurs before it is repaired, many issues arise. Understanding those problems help you to realize the benefits of having a service support contract in place.
Part 3 of 3: A simple visual inspection of the equipment may not always reveal if something is going wrong on the inside. That is where infrared scanning (IR) comes in.
Part 1 of 3: Because of the many facets of IR scans, this is the first of a three-part series which sheds light on an important part of a predictive maintenance program.
Reduce equipment, labor costs and deliver more efficiency and safety.
Identifying the primary reason for premature motor failure is as easy as looking at the bearings.
Rather than trying to remove all vibration from the machinery, it is beneficial to seek to balance the machinery to the greatest extent possible.
Although you may make every effort to ensure that a motor has a long life, there will come a time when it eventually needs to be repaired or will need to be replaced.
