Today, the popularity of preventive maintenance has been eclipsed by a data-driven, and more effective technique known as predictive maintenance. This is mainly because predictive maintenance helps in making complex decisions and reduces unscheduled downtime, and improves chemical plant efficiency.
For any chemical plant owner, unplanned downtime of equipment sets is bad news. Missed output quotas, higher maintenance expenses, and even hazards to staff safety are all possible outcomes.
Preventive maintenance, which is scheduled after a given amount of time regardless of whether a fault has been identified, used to be a classic technique of reducing unplanned asset downtime.
This was based on the idea that all assets would ultimately fail, thus it's best to maintain or even replace them after a given amount of time has passed.
Predictive maintenance has proven to be more effective in reducing unplanned downtime at several chemical plants. This is due to the fact that it gathers and analyzes actual motor/asset data in order to predict when a certain motor/asset will fail.
Your chemical plant’s maintenance engineer will be notified as an asset starts to show signs of failure. This would give the engineer enough time to schedule repairs.
Advanced predictive maintenance systems can detect the developing issues way before it happens, giving plant owners enough time to plan maintenance activities thereby reducing (and even eliminating) unexpected downtime.
The promise of advanced wireless predictive maintenance technologies has piqued the interest of the chemicals industry, as well as many others. These new approaches hold enticing potential.
They warn operators when and how a component is likely to go wrong in the future with a high level of confidence, by using machine-learning algorithms to sift through previous as well as current machine performance and failure data. It helps to reduce the impact of equipment failures and the cost of measures to prevent such failures.
Chemical plants can benefit from predictive maintenance by increasing their operational efficiency. Predictive maintenance is a more effective technique of decreasing asset failure and the resulting downtime.
Unplanned downtime can result in missed output quotas, which is critical for plant operations. This can be prevented by maintaining assets proactively, using real-time information about the machine health, thereby providing plant owners a higher chance of meeting output quotas.
Predictive maintenance also facilitates an increase in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), which is an important measure of operational efficiency. If assets are regularly maintained when a fault is discovered, healthy assets can continue to function until they need to be replaced. This would again lower your operational expenses.
Improved condition monitoring by remote sensing devices can also help to reduce equipment failures dramatically. Wireless Condition Monitoring Sensors from Nanoprecise help chemical plant operators to detect faults ahead of time and are exceedingly reliable.
Predictive Maintenance offers real-time insights about the health and performance of the machines and equipment sets in a chemical plant, helping chemical manufacturers prevent equipment failure and avoid unplanned downtime. It empowers maintenance and reliability professionals with the right data at the right time, allowing them to make smarter and better decisions.
A predictive maintenance strategy allows for better utilization of maintenance resources.
This is due to the fact that maintenance staff is dispatched only after an asset defect has been identified. As a result, the maintenance workload is reduced, which reduces the plant's operating costs.
This ensures that the resources are utilized to their utmost potential.
