Predictive Maintenance for Infrastructure
The nuclear industry is a leader in implementing proactive maintenance programs for process equipment. Repairs, maintenance, and replacements are aggressively addressed because there is a direct correlation to production and profitability.
Civil and structural infrastructure that supports process equipment is often given a much lower priority and often not budgeted until operability is jeopardized. Environmental factors not considered in the original design process often negatively impact the service life of civil and structural infrastructure. The principles of predictive maintenance can prevent or rehabilitate infrastructure challenges before they spread to the critical process equipment they support.
