Equipment isn’t disposable, and if you are dedicated to running your operations as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, it should never be thought of in that way. Regularly scheduled, planned maintenance procedures according to strict manufacturer guidelines is the way to keep your equipment operating properly.
The issue is companies see maintenance as a waste of time, or inspections and routine preventive maintenance isn’t built into a typical work week. The result is equipment that is ignored until something serious goes wrong down the road leading to expensive repairs or replacement of the equipment altogether. This is close to simply throwing money away.
It is extremely rare for equipment to fail without any warning beforehand. It is unfortunate that many companies see a simple yearly inspection as enough to satisfy OSHA or DOT requirements while also getting an idea of the condition of their equipment. For vacuum pumps and blowers that are used every day, under difficult circumstances, this isn’t close to enough. Simple visual inspections before use aren’t enough either which is why a dedicated equipment inspector that understands the manufacturer, has seen the signs of imminent failure in similar equipment, and knows how to make adjustments to reduce the risk of failure or what to replace before it becomes a serious problem is an important asset.
White Tank & Truck Repair is just such an asset. The cost of a professional inspection and preventive maintenance program that is customized to your individual needs will make sure that you receive the most return on your investment in your mission-critical equipment.
