Predictive Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance Programs allow for a focused effort on problem equipment. With tight budgets and limited resources, the classic “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” ideology has been the only option for many facilities. However, this system of determining maintenance needs is actually extremely expensive in both costs related to repairing or replacing equipment, and lost productivity. Preventative maintenance allows for scheduled down times and proactive, planned maintenance. Equipment is not repaired or replaced based on age or hours or operation – it is repaired or replaced based on efficiency.

Trane has highly trained Technicians in all locations with specialized instruments to monitor your equipment and alert you to any significant changes in trend patterns. Don’t wait until your machines dictate repairs due to an unplanned failure – schedule corrective maintenance that is convenient for you by utilizing Trane’s Predictive Maintenance.

Vibration Analysis

Vibration Analysis is detailed testing that is performed on machines that are not running as efficiently as they should. Using specialized technical monitoring equipment, Vibration Analysis identifies the specific source of excessive vibration and helps in root cause analysis so that the reason for component failure can be addressed and corrected.

Infrared Thermography

Infrared analysis can identify problems that generate excessive heating. These electrical issues, such as bad connections and overloading, can potentially cause complete mechanical failure. With infrared analysis, we can identify overloads, damaged bearings and couplings, and piping blockages and flow issues. This allows you to fix heating problems before you may even notice that you have them, and certainly before they cause catastrophic damage.
Balancing and Alignment

Unbalanced or misaligned rotating equipment can dramatically decrease the expected life of machine bearings, resulting in excessive and unexpected maintenance. Precision balancing and laser alignment lessens vibration energy and dramatically reduces the forces placed on couplings and bearings. This increases the long-term performance of your equipment and reduces unnecessary maintenance and replacement costs.
