While they don’t sound very menacing, tubing and clamping failures can cause injury, equipment damage, fires and forced outages. Maintenance literature for these minor but essential components seems scarce, and they don’t typically get inspected on a proactive basis. Performing unscheduled and unplanned maintenance further elevates the risk of errors and mishaps. Here are some preventive measures that will help mitigate the risk in your plant.

Leadership styles, the importance of hierarchy, collectivism versus individualism: these cultural parameters vary widely from country to country. We’ll identify and discuss key factors to be aware of as you navigate these complex and often confusing differences in conducting an O&M assessment at a power plant in a developing country.
Both asset-based and inspection-based setups offer viable approaches to setting up failure codes on your computerized maintenance management system (CMMS).
