Do You Need to Improve Your Mill’s Preventive Maintenance/Essential Care and Condition Monitoring Process?, Paper360º November/December 2018
Time flies. It has been 21 years since I started my days at IDCON. Through the years I have had the chance to visit many mills and review their practices. Before this year is finished I will have assessed mills in Sweden, Chile, Mexico, and the US. These assessments have brought up a clear trend in our industry.
The trend is that our PM/ECCM programs are poor and we are not fixing them.
For clarity, Preventive Maintenance/ Essential Care and Condition Monitoring (PM/ECCM) is defined as all actions taken to prevent a failure, or find a failure early. The parts of a PM/ECCM program include tasks for lubrication, mechanical equipment (on-the-run/shutdown), instruments (calibration, loop checks, on-the-run), and electrical (on-the-run/shutdown). There are a few other items on the list, but these cover 98 percent.
