Why Preventative Maintenance Improves Your Bottom Line
May 17, 2017
A big part of dehum, is designing, manufacturing and installing new production processes or improving existing ones, using the control of humidity and creating the perfect controlled climate required for that specific application.
However, this isn’t where our job ends.
Just like your car requires an annual service, so does the equipment / machinery that we or other suppliers install. We see maintenance as the healthcare of our dehum machines and the importance of an effective maintenance programme can’t be overlooked.
Every application starts with the building of the humidity control or accelerated drying design. Here at dehum this is where just the start of the long-term relationship starts, our focus is to keep the system at 100% and our engineers help deliver this.
The dehum approach is to predict and prevent breakdowns rather than just to fix if failures occur.
So just why do we need to maintain things regularly?
1.To reduces waste and to ensure that an efficient, reliable and continuous manufacturing, business or service operation runs.
2.To ensure that all equipment required for production is always operating at 100% efficiency and quality. If equipment start to wear, it may not only affect productivity but also product quality.
3. Daily inspections and more thorough annual servicing can detect any minor problems before they become major issues.
4. To reduce or preferably eliminate any Health & Safety risks that could be associated with machinery that has an undiscovered fault or issue.
The cost of a machine breakdown is difficult to measure but the true cost of a machine breakdown is more than just the labour and material required for the repair. When a breakdown causes production to stop, the true cost of a breakdown is much higher.
With the focus for most businesses being on the bottom line, the cost of downtime has a big impact on profitability.
How dehum can help?
1. We can provide on-site training to your team / engineers including:
a. How to spot common faults
b. Changing filters
