Gauges as Part of a Predictive Maintenance Approach
Many companies are only using a Predictive Maintenance program to monitor and optimize “critical” equipment, such as compressors and turbines. Software to monitor “essential” equipment – such as pumps, blowers, pipes, or cooling towers – may be deemed too cost-prohibitive. Yet, failures of these essential assets represent the majority of unplanned shutdowns and can comprise 70% of your maintenance budget.* The Maintenance Strategies eLearning reveals how employing cost-effective gauges as part of your maintenance program for essential equipment can help improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
