The term ‘maintenance’ had been explained in different terms by different authors, but basically they are all saying the same thing. Maintaining a is different from repairing a and also different from the use of the at lower load and time than specified. maintenance can be referred to as the entire process involved in the use of the to ensure its maximum efficiency, durability, lower cost of operation, and also guarantying the safety of the operators of the .
In other words, if a machine is being operated without good safety to the operators the machine is not under maintenance, if the operating cost is high in terms of repair it is not under maintenance, if the efficiency had reduced at high level it also shows it is not under maintenance.
Maintenance is a preliminary action on the to ensure the steady functionality and durability, and ensure gradual deteriorating of the lifespan. When these actions are put into place then a is said to be maintained.
There are different types of machine maintenance usually carried out by firms and large industries to ensure the continuous production and lower cost of their machine operation, because in the engineering believe “ it costs more to repair broken down machine than to maintain it” . we shall quickly discuss the different types of machine maintenance and how they are helping in the machine durability, the rest shall be a topic for another day.
This is simply the servicing of the according to the procedures specified at the operators manual in order to prevent unexpected break-down or strange occurrences in the . In this type of maintenance the activities involves:
Regular checking and addition of
Tightening of any loosened nut in the
Regular checking and adjustment of brakes, , and safety devices
Possible part replacement,
Please note, that this maintenance is usually carried out in industrial machines to prevent the expensive cost of complete shutdown of the plant, because in most cases the machine may be operational while the maintenance is being done. Hence, referred to as preventive because of the purpose it tends to achieve.
This is a scheduled maintenance of , targeted at specific periods of time, for instance a firm may decide to use first three days of every month for planned maintenance of their , in such case the may not actually have any or indicated any sign of power drop, the sole purpose is to ensure that every part of the is in their normal condition and the records obtained are used to compare with the previous maintenance and with that ant deteriorating part of the can easily be noted and a new part will be made available pro to the total damage of the existing part.
This maintenance is usually carried out at the shutdown state of the .
RANDOMIZED SHUT-DOWN MAINTENANCE
Most has two or three performing the same function, and to ensure that each keeps working at the higher efficiency, they are subjected to random shutdown maintenance in such case each of the will be shut down and maintenance will be carried out on them any interval of time according to the firms’ discretion.
