Preventative Maintenance

 Maintenance is the backend of capital equipment purchases.  It’s required and the better it’s addressed on a periodic basis, the longer expected equipment life and the greater your uninterrupted production.  That said, every facility has a different allocation of maintenance staff and skill sets.  SysTech has long recognized that maintenance departments appreciate the up-front support we offer with the equipment and systems we install.  On a long term basis, we offer clients with preventative maintenance packages that assure equipment is operating at peak performance and down time and crisis situations are minimized.

The most efficient businesses that have implemented comprehensive, planned and predictive maintenance programs find that their total costs can be as much as 50 percent lower than the costs for those organizations that continue to maintain equipment reactively. Benefits of a preventative maintenance package?

  • Extended equipment operating life
  • Deferred capital replacement costs
  • Improved operating efficiency
  • Reduced energy use/energy savings
  • Early identification of potential problems
  • Fewer emergency service repairs
  • Less frequent system downtime
  • Decreased interruptions to operations and production
  • Increased comfort / reduced occupant complaints
  • Enhanced safety / mitigated risks

Preventative Maintenance Plans


With a planned service agreement that’s tailored to meet your budget and operating needs, SysTech will conduct regularly scheduled maintenance inspections. Based on your system requirements and manufacturers’ recommendations, site visits can be scheduled monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.

During each preventive maintenance service visit, a qualified and experienced technician will inspect and evaluate your ventilation equipment, make needed routine adjustments, and identify any potential problems or essential repairs.  A written detailed report will follow within one week of the visit.  With this information, future scheduled maintenance for repairs can be set in place long before issue arise.

Dust Collectors


Dust collectors are under scrutiny because their failure is readily evident with dust accumulation and contaminated room or discharged airstreams.

Routine inspection would include but not limited to:

  • Airflow and pressure readings
  • Confirming airflow at pick-up points
  • Checking airlocks (If applicable)
  • Inspection of filters
  • Checking pulse cleaning system
  • Mechanical inspection of equipment including gasketing
  • Visual physical inspection of equipment

 

Air Handlers


Air Handlers have a host of available options and although seasonal in need, they require maintenance inspection prior to summer and winter months.

Basic preventative maintenance includes air filter inspection.

Routine inspection would include but not limited to:

  • Checking damper operation
  • Inspecting and changing filters
  • Inspection of burners
  • Checking airflow
  • Mechanical inspection of equipment
  • Visual physical inspection of equipment

 

Fans & Blowers


Fans and blowers are the workhorse in the industrial sector.  As such their peak operational efficiency is of paramount importance.

Routine inspection would include but not limited to:

  • Lubricating motor bearings
  • Confirming airflow and static pressure
  • Checking belts for tightness and integrity
  • Inspecting wheel condition for wear, if access door is in place
  • Mechanical inspection of equipment
  • Visual physical inspection of equipment
  • Vibration checks

 

Explosion Suppression Systems


Periodic inspections and record keeping for explosion protection system is mandated by code and needs to be followed closely.  SysTech’s manufacturer, IEP Technologies has plans in-place that will that will satisfy code officials and insurance carriers to provide quarterly maintenance per NFPA 654.

Technician checking for proper response to trouble and alarm conditions.

Routine inspection would include but not limited to:

  • Control panel electrical check
  • Verify pressure sensor is clear and calibrated
  • Inspect IR detector
  • Extinguisher pressure checks
  • Check all interlocks
  • Mechanical inspection of equipment including controls, bottles, and valves
  • Visual physical inspection of equipment
