Maintenance engineering is arguably a concept rather than a set of knowledge and skills. It is a concept that pulls together literally all engineering disciplines, as demanded by day-to-day maintenance problems.
At i-PAM we will never claim to be proficient maintenance engineers. We rather depend on our network of alliance partners and top-class individuals who have built considerable knowledge and experience of specific physical assets.
A few examples are:
- Investigating a fall in efficiency of a radial piston pump calls for knowledge and experience which is vastly different of what is required for a multi-stage centrifugal pump.
- Deciding on replacing a motor end-plate when the bearing housing bore is damaged requires an understanding of welding, metal arc spraying and machining techniques.
- Lubrication is another highly specialised area which can have substantial implications for equipment reliability and useful life.
- Most modern plants and stand-alone equipment are equipped with sophisticated electronic systems, often proprietary to the OEM.
Due to i-PAM’s deep involvement in RCM facilitation, we have developed a substantial and diverse network of equipment- and discipline-specific technical experts. As a minimum, we will gladly help you to get in touch with the right expert.
