Although the Predictive Maintenance technologies themselves can get quite complicated, the basic concept of PdM is simple enough: Most industrial equipment does not suddenly break down and stop working. The truth is equipment breaks down gradually – over a period of weeks or months. The problem is that one or two technologies alone can’t detect the majority of the warning signals in your plant. As a result, a single-technology PdM program will miss far more faults than it catches. Failure Modes Driven Strategy provides maintenance supervisors and engineers with the numerous warning signals to avoid costly equipment breakdown. These early warning signs – for instance, slight changes in temperature, vibration or sound – can be detected by PdM technologies. As a result, PdM gives you time to plan, schedule and make repairs – before the equipment fails.
