eHandbook: Use condition-based maintenance best practices to avoid costly downtime

April 23, 2024
CBM might not be the cheapest approach to maintaining a given asset, but the payoff may be worth it.

Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is based on the theory that equipment is operating efficiently when measurements of vibration, heat, pressure, tension, speed, alignment, and so on fall within an acceptable bandwidth. As the equipment wears, measurements drift beyond established control limits, and maintenance is required to bring the equipment back to optimum operating conditions. Using this method, equipment failure can be predicted, so that steps can be taken to prevent production downtime and more costly emergency repairs.

In this eHandbook, you'll learn:

  • How to extend the lifespan of industrial gearboxes
  • How much condition-based maintenance is enough for your facility
  • How to facilitate condition monitoring of low-speed machinery
