When it comes to plant and process equipment, improving reliability is the key to ensuring uninterrupted production and lowering the total cost of ownership. It also helps meet health and safety standards and reduces environmental impact by limiting the risk of accidents.
A customer may benefit from improved reliability when:
Excessive downtime is impairing production.
Breakdowns can be caused by a number of factors and, in critical operations, the downtime associated with equipment failures can have a major impact on production. With more than 230 global rapid-response facilities, John Crane is able to mitigate the effects of unplanned maintenance by providing quick on-site assistance with repairs and replacement. Customers can also plan ahead with our proactive, holistic service solutions: Equipment Service for regular health checks, Reliability Support for performance improvements and Asset Management for real-time system and machine monitoring.
Health and safety and/or environmental risks require management.
Increased reliability naturally leads to fewer failures — which means fewer opportunities for hazardous incidents and better compliance with strict environmental standards. By replacing or refurbishing existing equipment with reliable products engineered for environmental compliance, John Crane can help customers contain fugitive emissions and maintain high safety records while also enhancing efficiency. The result? Fewer failures and an improved corporate image.
A high volume of equipment failures is causing operational budgets to increase.
Frequent equipment breakdowns can have a major impact on operational costs, but John Crane’s proven success with site-wide measurement and performance improvement can help reduce costs related to equipment failure. Our proactive holistic service solutions (Reliability Support for performance improvements and Asset Management for real-time monitoring) can be aligned to deliver targeted improvements based upon predetermined technical and commercial KPIs.
