Advantages of Preventative Maintenance
We provide preventative maintenance services to lessen the likelihood of equipment failure. Preventative maintenance is performed while the equipment is still running (so that it does not break down unexpectedly) and is planned ahead of time.
Maintenance is scheduled based on a time trigger. A typical example of assets with a time based preventative maintenance schedule is an air-conditioner which is serviced every year, before summer.
Unplanned, reactive maintenance typically cost three to nine times more than planned maintenance. It has many overhead costs that can be avoided during the planning process, such for example lost production, higher cost for parts and shipping, as well as time lost responding to emergencies' and diagnosing faults while equipment is not working. When maintenance is planned, each of these costs can be reduced.
Equipment can be shut down to coincide with production downtime. Prior to the shutdown, any required parts, supplies and personnel can be gathered to minimize the time taken for a repair. These measures decrease the total cost of the maintenance. Safety is also improved because equipment breaks down less often than in less complex strategies.
During preventative maintenance the following tasks and inspections can be carried out:
- Testing of all equipment for refrigerant leaks
- Cleaning evaporator and condenser coils
- Inspecting refrigerant and oil levels
- Testing safety controls
- Inspecting cool room and case hardware
- Flushing out drains
We can customize a maintenance schedule for your store and cost requirements.
