The most important maintenance strategy we adopted to improve reliability.”Maintenance & Engineering Manager in one of the world’s largest manufacturing facilities.

 

Typical results are listed below and possible with strong management commitment and a rigorous implementation plan we call “FasTrack to Reliability™️”

 

case history

A mineral operation managing 400 blowers across 49 plants worldwide. These critical assets range from 350 – 400 HP, rotating at 3600 RPM, achieving an average life span of only two years. Each of these assets requires a $50,000 investment to rebuild.

 

After rapid implementation of precision maintenance in their U.S. central rebuild shop, including implementation of precision transportation & install specifications – the life of each asset is doubled.
