Conditioned-based maintenance (CBM) provides you with the tools necessary to squeeze every possible hour out of your machinery. It saves you money by matching service intervals to the working environment and real-time machine health. CBM is unique because it involves maintenance that is predictive as well as preventative. Fluid analysis is an integral part of CBM. Through the rigor of quality sampling, fluid analysis aims to drastically reduce downtime from catastrophic failures and control long-term repair costs. If full-time production and maximum uptime is a requirement for your business, read this paper to learn how CBM and fluid analysis can work for you.
