Power Transmission Company Implements Predictive Maintenance Program

Challenge:

A power transmission and motion control products manufacturer was looking to develop a predictive maintenance plan to be utilized in their plant. The manufacturer would wait for a pump to fail, then deploy emergency labor with the hopes of having a replacement pump on hand.  This reactive planning proved to be very costly.

Solution:

LineDrive demoed the Fluke 805FC to diagnose any excessive vibration in critical pieces of equipment and allowing the manufacturer to fix the equipment before a failure.

Documented Cost Savings:

By using the Fluke 805FC, the manufacturer will save an estimated $10,000 a year in pump replacements and significantly reducing down time and emergency labor costs.
