Ensure the smooth-running of your plant with maintenance planning support from Delta Mobrey
In addition, reactive call out charges are generally more expensive than if you’re covered by a maintenance contract. You might also face delays in getting contractors or replacement parts to site – costing even more disruption and money. Planned maintenance won’t completely eradicate unforeseen events, but it helps identify where changes are occurring and allows breakdowns to be pre-empted.
Even ignoring breakdowns, uncalibrated instruments cost money. Over time, the calibration will drift, and along with it the setpoint and the control of the process. The result is inaccurate measurements, poor control, and lost or wasted product or energy… and money.
Having a planned preventative maintenance regime means you’re in control of your plant.
Health & Safety
Regardless of age, if your instrumentation and controls haven’t been serviced or calibrated within the last year, you can’t be sure your readings are accurate.
How comfortable would you be knowing that the aircraft you were sitting in, or a nuclear power station in your neighbourhood, had uncalibrated instrumentation? For many of the processes that your plant instrumentation monitors and controls there’s enough locally stored energy to cause similar devastating damage.
