What Are The Types Of Electrical Maintenance?
Updated: Nov 12
Electrical maintenance includes many aspects. Testing, monitoring, fixing, and changing elements of an electrical system called electrical maintenance. This kind of maintenance must be performed by a professional who has complete knowledge about national electric code and local regulations. The technician’s task is to find the problem as soon as possible. Electrical maintenance covers a vast area:
All of the above-mentioned areas included in electrical maintenance. Electrical maintenance is more important than ever. Just a very small mistake can ruin everything.
One of the most challenging areas in electrical maintenance is electrical wiring. Since the system is built into the building, finding the location of the problem is very difficult. Thermal Imaging is for identifying issues and catching the problems. Electrical maintenance finds the problem very early and protects the equipment from damage.
different types of electrical maintenance:
There are five types of maintenance that they are different from each other.
Corrective maintenance: when users of the equipment face defects that need repairing, they send equipment to the maintenance department. This department’s task is to correct the defects.
Periodic maintenance (Time Based Maintenance TBM): some elementary tasks like data collection, visual inspection, cleaning, lubrication, retightening screws do not need extensive training. They are done just by users themselves with limited knowledge and training. In this type of maintenance, the basics are done by the users and it is based on total productive maintenance (TPM)
Predictive Maintenance: predictive maintenance by knowing the values of certain variables report the status and operational capacity of the installations. For applying this kind of maintenance, it is quite important to identify the physical variables like temperature, vibration, and power consumption. This maintenance needs very good technical knowledge in mathematics and physic. It is the most technical maintenance since it can be done just by expert technicians. They can find which variation is indicative of problems that may be appearing on the equipment.
Preventive Maintenance: it is a systematic character that has to the mission. The first mission is to maintain a level of certain service on equipment and the second is programming the interventions of their vulnerabilities in the most opportune time. In preventing maintenance all the equipment is examined even it has not given any symptoms of having a problem.
Zero Hours Maintenance (Overhaul): zero hours maintenance’s mission is to control and review the equipment in fixed and scheduled intervals before they get any problem. When the reliability of the equipment has decreased, making forecasts of production capacity is quite risky. In this maintenance, technicians leave the equipment to zero hours of operation like when the equipment is new. All the items will check in this review.
