How critical are the components?
If the items surveyed are critical components to your production
deadline they should be surveyed every six-(6) months. 60% of our
service is annual, 25% is semiannual, and 15% is quarterly. We service
over 340 customers annually.
Are scheduled outages in the future?
If scheduled outages are in your future you need to arrange for
the services two-(2) or three-(3) months ahead. This insures you will
have time to locate hard to find failing components.
Is the work environment harsh?
Dirty, corrosive, and high vibration areas will need to be
surveyed more often.
Are components subject to frequent heavy
High loading of electrical components can cause small problems
under normal loading to become extreme during heavy loading. A 4
degree C rise over ambient at 10% load, will increase to 100 degrees C
with a 50% load.
Is equipment new or additional to existing?
Surveys should be conducted before acceptance of any new or
additional equipment. Just because it's new doesn't mean it was
installed properly. Have corrections made before acceptance.
