IPS predictive and preventive maintenance moves operations away from a reactive approach to equipment failure. Our programs improve reliability and extend the life of critical infrastructure, for lower operating costs and reduced capital spending.
We test, service, and maintain electric motors and generators, rotating equipment, and power distribution. Our field service technicians work closely with the IPS engineering corps to develop fleet-level solutions for reliability challenges.
We combine industry-specific experience with OEM-level investments in technology and test equipment. Over time, IPS can help you build a data-driven approach to conditions-based maintenance.
Our field service technicians define a baseline to identify trends and improve reliability with multiple diagnostic tools, including:
We also perform preventive maintenance. This includes:
IPS provides OEM-authorized service and repair, and end-of-warranty inspections for repair or replace decisions.
Over time, pumps, fans, blowers, and compressors develop mechanical problems, such as worn bearings, misalignment, and shaft bends. We troubleshoot with expert diagnostics, including flow tests and vibration analysis, then correct problems with cleaning, field alignment, and balancing.
Our field service technicians use IR analysis to isolate electrical overloading, underloading, or connection problems. IR analysis also reveals problems with bearings, couplings, pump seals, and gaskets.
We also use:
Our maintenance for rotating equipment includes:
End user electrical distribution and grounding causes up to 80 percent of power quality problems. Power quality is your responsibility — we can help you manage it.
National Power, an IPS company, leads our predictive and preventive maintenance for electrical systems — substations, transformers, switchgear, motor control panels, and breakers. National’s technicians and electrical engineers perform NETA testing and inspection in accordance with the latest NETA MTA standard.
We help you develop a regimen to identify and correct problems that cause equipment deterioration, to improve power distribution safety, reliability, and performance. Our electrical testing and maintenance services include:
