Low Or No Maintenance Industrial Machinery

Maintenance is a big focus for most modern companies. Keeping all of your equipment running correctly will ensure that your final product has the best possible quality. One way to optimize the performance of your machines is through predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance (PdM) is when you use performance data to dictate when you service equipment or machinery within your operation. An example might be an air filter that has a flow sensor built in. When the sensor detects a low flow rate, that means that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. Preventative maintenance, on the other hand, is simply planned service at certain time intervals. Looking at the same air filter example, preventative maintenance would be a quarterly reminder on your calendar to replace all air filters. What if the air filters aren’t clogged, however, or they actually clogged a month ago? PdM picks up on all of these missed opportunities that preventative maintenance fails to capture. Just how can predictive maintenance be so much more effective and efficient? Read on to the infographic accompanying this post to learn more about the technologies powering predictive maintenance.
