Enhance Equipment Reliability with Asset Storage and Maintenance Management
An aggregate customer possessed two critical spare motors – a 1200hp ball-end mill motor and a 1500hp refiner motor, both brand new and still in their crates. These motors were intended for use in a demanding operational environment. However, they were left in an aggressive, non-controlled environment for a year without any maintenance. The recommended course of action was to store these motors in a climate and humidity-controlled storage facility. Despite this recommendation, the customer declined due to distance, budget constraints, and other priorities. A new Reliability Manager joined the location and recognized the pressing need for maintenance due to the motors’ prolonged idle state. Concerned about the condition of the motors, he requested quotes for the re-conditioning of the two motors.
