- Reliability of the facility power distribution system will be increased.
- Production loss due to unplanned outage can be minimized.
- Costs of emergency repairs, in terms of overtime labor, higher priced replacement parts and emergency parts shipping, are reduced.
- Scheduled shutdown time can be reduced for electrical maintenance since problems are pinpointed prior to shutdown. Replacements parts, if required, can be ordered to be ready and waiting.
- With effective preventative maintenance, equipment life will be extended, delaying capital expenditures for equipment replacement.
- Prior to a new facility/system start-up, an infrared inspection can locate potential problems and help to “shake down” the electrical system.
