Preventative Maintenance

An ounce of prevention could save you a ton of headaches—and money. 

Downtime is never an option. That’s why keeping up with inspections and staying ahead of any potential problems with preventive maintenance is so critical—it’s also required for NFPA compliance. The costs of preventable accidents should not be taken lightly. Not only is there downtime and disruption to your business which can affect profits, but there’s the potential for injury—or worse.

There are an estimated 37,000 fires at industrial or manufacturing properties each year, many of which could be prevented with basic monitoring and maintenance. Just one minute of uncontrolled combustion in a 12MM BTU burner can equal the explosive force of 100 lbs. of TNT.

Preventive measures often include continued training for employees, both on equipment and safety standards and practices. Implementing a comprehensive maintenance and testing plan also will help.

Burner safety is complex. Many tools are required to safely operate, troubleshoot, inspect and maintain fuel-fired equipment. Finding a trusted source for onsite inspection and maintenance programs can make all the difference in staying ahead of any problems that might arise.
