Predictive & Preventative Maintenance
Developing effective predictive and preventative maintenance strategies is key to ensuring safety, productivity and profitability. Predictive maintenance programs can maximize uptime while reducing the cost burden, in terms of both time and money, compared to traditional preventative maintenance. An effective predictive maintenance program conserves resources by prompting action when it is required rather than following a preventative schedule which may replace parts before their lifecycle is complete.
Your predictive maintenance strategy will help you prepare for and prevent future issues. Implementing real-time monitoring provides vital intelligence to inform your predictive maintenance program about physical conditions that effect your machine’s lifespan and efficiency.
Preventive maintenance is proactive and relies on historical data from your machine operations to identify potential problems and plan for downtime for scheduled maintenance. McNaughton-McKay’s systems engineers have the expertise to help you create strategies and architect solutions tailored to your facility that maximize the benefits of both.
Thermography inspection and assessment can prevent breakdowns, downtime, potential loss of earnings and property damage. Regular thermography inspections of your electrical assets can identify electrical faults before their failure becomes a costly concern for your business. McNaughton-McKay’s services team can scan electrical cabinets, breaker panels, fuses, bolted connections and switchgear. We can also examine mechanical systems, motors, bearings and more. Upon completion of our thermography inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report showing your facility’s probable threats and potential failures along with recommend remediation actions.
Ultra-Sonic Air Leak assessments will identify your compressed air systems’ health to detect and document air leaks. Compressed air leaks are a significant source of wasted energy, often draining as much as 20-30% of the compressor’s output. McNaughton-McKay’s services team technicians can perform an ultrasonic leak detection assessment of all compressed air and pneumatic distribution systems throughout your facility. Targets for inspection include main headers, coupling, hoses, fittings, joints, quick disconnects, drops, filter-regulator-lubricators, valves and anywhere compressed air is utilized.
Vibration Analysis detects abnormal vibration events and evaluates the overall condition of your components, machines, drives or motors. Our vibration analysis services look for vibration peaks at the component level and identify patterns from data collection. Through harmonic analysis we can determine the severity and implement a remediation plan to resolve the issue and reduce, if not eliminate, future risk.
Power Quality irregularities can harm the performance and life expectancy of your electronic components and are the leading source of unplanned downtime. We provide monitoring solutions to identify power disturbances impacting your facility or specific machines. Next, we uncover the root cause of your power quality problems and devise solutions which may include voltage sag correctors, uninterruptible power suppliers, surge and filtration products to protect your critical equipment.
GraceSense Hot Spot Monitor (HMS)
Are you looking for real-time analytics for your systems that uses a web-based app? GraceSense™ from Grace Engineered Products offers you a predictive maintenance system that monitors the health of your assets. The GraceSense™ Hot Spot Monitor (HSM) identifies potential hot spots and alerts you of abnormalities.
Schaffner's ECOsine Active
Whether for machinery, welding equipment, variable-frequency drives, or electric motors almost all non-linear consumers can cause substantial voltage distortion. Harmonic currents up to the 50th harmonic and expensive reactive power: ECOsine® Active eliminates both direct and reliable harmonic currents up to the 50th harmonic and expensive reactive power.
Reduce Energy Loss Using Fluke Thermography
There can be many causes for energy loss in commercial buildings and industrial facilities. These losses can be detected by inspecting for such things as air leaks and systems running inefficiently using a thermal imager. With the right equipment, you can identify problem areas in your equipment so they can be addressed, helping your facility run efficiently.
