If you change the oil in your car or replace the filters in your home HVAC system you're doing preventative maintenance. It makes sense as you're trying to extend the life of your assets. The same philosophy exists for electrical distribution equipment and in this episode Dan Leeman walks us through tips and best practices to give you the most reliable and safe equipment possible.
Dan breaks down how to start a preventative maintenance program to yield the best results out of the gate. He also discusses the nuances of outages and how to best maximize the time spent in those situations to do maintenance that is difficult to perform during normal operating times. Dan provides a great example of how a PM on a medium voltage transformer prevented a catastrophic failure and how the end user was able to react in a non-emergency state and resolve the issue.
Dan is an expert in industry and shares meaningful insight and wisdom to help others get started with compressive and robust preventative maintenance program.
Remember what Benjamin Franklin said "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"!
