Preventative Maintenance


Prevent Potential Breakdowns with ACEC’sĀ Help

Includes planned actions undertaken to keep equipment in an immaculate condition by providing repetitive scheduled tasks to ensure a reliable system operation. These activities involve but are not limited to regular and routing inspection cleaning, lubricating, testing, calibrating adjusting checking for wear and tear and eventually replacing components to avoid breakdown.

Maintenance is to be executed at fixed intervals (time-based), or in agreement with prescribed criteria (running hours based), aiming at a reduction of possible failures or the degradation of an element, item or piece of goods.

Preventative maintenance includes the routine checks of parameters suitable to verify the correct and trouble-free operation of the equipment. Like, but not limited to:

  • Temperatures and pressure reading
  • Vibration measurements
  • Fluid levels
  • Lube oil analysis
  • Leakages checks and restore
  • Visual monitoring of unit/ equipment operative status
  • Replacement or refilling of lubricants, refrigeration fluids, hydraulic fluids
  • Replacement of air and oil filters
  • Checks on bolt tightening
  • External cleaning of equipment and plant areas
  • Execution of periodical setting-up of instruments and control devices, in order to guarantee the required level of accuracy
  • Visual inspection and testing of electrical fixtures and appliances to ensure compliance and assurance

Condition Based Maintenance

This is the maintenance executed whenever the trend of one, or more, operating parameters shows an incipient failure of a given piece of equipment.

ACEC will perform condition monitoring on all engines, generators, electric motors and associated pumps according to OEM instructions or based on machine condition according to the maintenance strategy.

Conditioning Monitoring techniques may include:

  • Vibration monitoring
  • Performance monitoring
  • Vibration monitoring
  • Lube oil analysis
  • Fuel gas metering calibration
  • Boiler efficiency tests
  • Motor current signature analysis

Diesel engine load tests will be carried out after major maintenance I engine overhauls/change outs.

Where condition monitoring systems are supplied as part of the plant and equipment, ACEC will be responsible for the configuration and operation of these systems in support of his responsibilities as outlined above.
