A key component of any manufacturing, mining or any industrial endeavour is making sure that all the plant is running properly. Critical failure of infrastructure not only causes financial stress, but the downtime can, too.
An important consideration is preventative maintenance – and this is where test and measurement equipment comes into its own. It can be a flow measurement meter, a thermal imaging camera, vibration testing equipment – all are critical in making sure your plant is keep in tip-top condition, as well as keeping you up to date on how well your plant is handling its role in its overall manufacturing performance.
Accuracy is a key ingredient with test and measurement equipment, so a peripheral aspect that needs to be addressed is to make sure all devices are calibrated properly. If your test and measurement equipment is not calibrated properly then not only will it give you a false reading, but again, you put your plant at risk.
