Article Excerpt:
Red Cedar Gathering uses the asset management to do predictive and preventive maintenance by monitoring and analyzing historical and real-time data such as temperatures and pressures. “The additional data helps us keep a close eye on the condition of the equipment,” says Velasquez. “We now proactively measure the condition of our equipment and set historical and condition-based rules. We record machine data to see the condition of our equipment and use preset rules to identify out-of-spec conditions.” “We can also now analyze the data and optimize the treating capabilities. We keep tighter thresholds on temperatures now and have a more...

What’s the Difference Between Preventive, Proactive, and Predictive Maintenance?

Downtime in a plant or facility leads to lost productivity. It disrupts operations, causes maintenance staff to divert time from scheduled projects, and can have significant negative business implications, including lost revenue, significant unplanned expenses, missed deadlines and damage to a company’s reputation.

Reactive approaches like this result in disruptions and unplanned downtime. A better approach is preventive maintenance, which is a routine for periodically inspecting equipment with the goal of...

The Importance Of Preventive Maintenance

LLumin's Insight
The Critical Role of CMMS in Preventive Maintenance - Preventive maintenance is a pro-active way to prevent asset failure and reduce downtime. Planning a preventative maintenance schedule involves tracking data manually to determine when servicing needs to be performed. Using CMMS software can make it much less difficult than trying to do it manually.
