courtesy of MetsoProcess plants are built of many expensive capital assets. Thousands of pieces of equipment must work together reliably to produce finished products. The unplanned failure of a single piece of equipment may cost millions in lost production.

Preventive and predictive maintenance strategies have delivered results in some areas, such as vibration analysis on rotating equipment. These programs have succeeded because they have a strong combination of good measurements, historical records & trending and trained personnel. A similar approach can be applied to instruments and control valves improving reliability and performance at a low cost.
