Loosening of fasteners is one of the major causes of industrial equipment failure, resulting in millions of dollars of unscheduled downtime costs each year. In many cases, fasteners that self-loosen during equipment operation may contribute to wear and fatigue, and result in poor operating tolerances and misalignment. Various types of differential stresses such as vibration […]

It’s typically the top priority for maintenance engineers: boost plant reliability and efficiency. One way to achieve this is to prevent equipment failure before it can happen. Of course it isn’t always possible, but there are areas where failure is more likely to happen. Scheduled maintenance activities based on these predictions can reduce production costs […]
