Predictive Maintenance Services

The objective of Predictive Maintenance is to regularly monitor, measure,and track selected parameters or operating performances of equipment in order to identify problems prior to failure. A “Predictive” Maintenance program should be an extension of a good “Preventive” Maintenance program.

Consider this excerpt from the U.S. Department of Energy:

U.S. Department of Energy – Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Federal Energy Management Program:

Past studies have estimated that a Predictive Maintenance Program can provide a savings of 8% to 12%. If a facility currently relies on a reactive maintenance approach savings opportunities of 30% to 40% could be realized. The following industrial average savings have resulted from initiation of a predictive maintenance program:

  • Return on investment: 10 times
  • Reduction in maintenance costs: 25% to 30%
  • Elimination of breakdowns: 70% to 75%
  • Reduction in downtime: 35% to 45%
  • Increase in production: 20% to 25%

Advantages of Predictive Maintenance Programs:

  • Provides increased component operational life and availability
  • Allows for preemptive corrective actions
  • Results in decrease in equipment and/or process downtime
  • Lowers costs for parts and labor
  • Provides better product quality
  • Improves worker and environmental safety
  • Raises worker morale
  • Increases energy savings
  • Results in an estimated 8% to 12% cost savings
