|This course prepares attendees to start a preventative maintenance program or to better operate an existing program. It emphases the reliability centered maintenance approach of using a combination of several maintenance strategies to reduce total maintenance costs while still keeping the equipment running in top shape. It prepares attendees to better understand the preventive maintenance needs for building mechanical systems including: air handlers, low-pressure boilers, package and split air conditioners, chillers and cooling towers. Included are discussions on the use of operation logs, check sheets, procedure/process description sheets and other quality tools to improve the process and to make it easier.
Describe how even a minimum scheduled maintenance program will be beneficial.
Describe the value of setting goals and of using value drivers and measuring deliverables to improve the performance of the maintenance operation.
Describe how to use the technical maintenance strategies of run-to-fail, preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance and proactive maintenance to the best advantage to reduce total maintenance costs while keeping equipment in top shape.
Describe the steps on how to establish a mechanized preventive maintenance program.
Describe how to use operating logs, check sheets and procedure description sheets to make it easier to assemble a PM program.
Describe how to establish a good commissioning process for new building systems.
Describe the details of the maintenance needs for motors, motor drives, bearings, gear-drives, centrifugal pumps, low-pressure steam and hot water boilers, cooling equipment, cooling towers, fans and air handlers.
Describe indoor air quality issues that need to be cared for when working on mechanical systems.
