After all, the reliability and integrity of your electrical distribution system should be paramount and so is protecting your equipment and staff. Scheduled Maintenance Inspection and testing and servicing of equipment should be done on a regular basis, at least once every three years, but rather more often for critical components.
Electrical maintenance includes fault diagnosis, regular routine servicing, and repairing electrical components.
Electrical Maintenance Types:
- Preventive maintenance, where all equipment is regularly and properly serviced before any faults occur, where all equipment is kept in good working condition and continuously assessed. The maintenance is carried out when indicators signal that the equipment is deteriorating.
- Periodic maintenance, which is the basicof all equipment by its user or operator and consists of data collection, visual inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and tightening of screws. Minimal training is required, although variables such as temperature, vibration, power consumption, etc., need to be identified.
- Corrective maintenance, where the tradesman puts right any defect or fault found in the equipment as it is found.
