Why preventative maintenance for mechanical systems?
The primary reason for a company to have a preventive maintenance program in place is to prevent unexpected outages due to equipment failure. Every company's situation is different, but any outage is always inconvenient and sometimes very costly. A proper preventive maintenance program and routine maintenance will greatly reduce the risk of equipment failure, extend equipment life and reduce a company's overall operating cost.
Each maintenance program needs to be customized for the equipment and the conditions in which it operates. Maintenance performed too often can cause undue wear and tear, plus be a waste of time and money. Maintenance performed not often enough can cause premature equipment failure and reduce the overall life of the equipment. This is why Alaska Refrigeration schedules a consultation with each client to come up with the right maintenance program to fit their needs. Get started and request a free quote today!
