Predictive Maintenance Services

for companies dealing with heavy and intricate
machinery. By taking advantage of predictive
maintenance, you can avoid many headaches
knowing that you made a long-term commitment
of protecting your investments. In addition,
budgeting becomes manageable: maintenance
and repairs should be a number that can be
estimated far more accurately than a company
who doesn’t take advantage of predictive maintenance.

There are numerous reasons why you should
regularly perform predictive maintenance services including:

Benefits

Improving the general maintenance level of your
system this way that leads to enhanced productivity
of the plant. Employing this technique on a regular
basis will ensure that you improve the reliability of
your system by a very huge percentage. This is due
to the fact that any potential eventualities have been
addressed adequately.

Helps plant owners reduce costs usually used for
replacements. Many components become faulty
because the problems were not detected in due time,
but were not addressed properly.

These services also improve overall safety and quality
of work that is being produced.

Having a specialist on-site presents an opportunity
to catch other problems that ordinarily would escape notice.

system usually starts small and eventually end up
huge because no measure was taken to curb them.

Companies providing predictive maintenance
services usually provide you with the required
necessary solutions.

Other monitoring services usually include
thermography, oil analysis, vibration, motor current,
ultrasonic, and alignment. These services are offered
as soon as the predictive tests reveal that they need
to be done. Knowing immediately the results of a
test that spotlights a specific problem is a
significant advantage because you’ll be able
to make an educated decision regarding the next step.
 

Laser Vibrometer Readings

Experienced L&S technicians use advanced laser
technology to detect problems in hard-to-reach areas.
We are able to gather accurate data from as far away
as 660 feet, reducing the number of inaccessible bearings.
 

Operation Deflection Shape Studies

While a machine is operating, our state-of-the-art equipment
creates a 3-D animation of the structural movements,
allowing us to accurately detect potential stress in rotating
and driven equipment, bases, and motor frames.
 

Motor Current Signature Analysis

Detecting rotor problems in AC induction motors can prevent
unscheduled downtime before valuable production time is lost.
 

Roll Roundness Profile Analysis

By measuring the relative motion between press rolls and
detecting irregularities, roll roundness profile analysis helps
ensure that your products achieve a consistent quality.
 

Sound Level Analysis

Quantifying the decibel levels in noisy work areas ensures that
accurate safety measures can be taken to protect your employees’ hearing.
 

Ultrasonic Air Surveys

Ultrasound air surveys detect leaks in pressure and vacuum systems,
detect electrical arcing, and inspect for bearing failure.
