SALEM, Ohio--Hunt Valve (www.huntvalve.com), a fluid power engineering company specializing in severe-duty valves and components, has published a new infographic designed to help plant and maintenance engineers understand the importance of preventive maintenance for high-pressure water valves. Download this free resource to learn how preventive industrial valve maintenance impacts overall system performance and safeguards a facility’s bottom line.
“When it comes to preventive maintenance for your high-pressure water valves, it’s the follow through that really makes the difference,” explained Brad Sterner, Hunt Valve’s president and CEO. “If you implement a reliable program and allow it to mature and thrive, you’ll realize several long-term benefits including decreased maintenance costs, increased productivity and enhanced workplace safety.”
Hunt Valve’s latest infographic features the latest statistics from five areas of high-pressure water valve maintenance:
1. Lack of maintenance: Find out how a lack of industrial valve maintenance is directly related to component and system failure.
2. Reactive maintenance vs. preventive maintenance: Compare the cost benefits of these two types of maintenance programs.
3. Valve maintenance cost savings: Discover how a 20 percent maintenance effort can generate an 80 percent reduction in machine operating costs.
4. Downtime: Learn how preventive maintenance significantly reduced downtime for one plant.
5. Preventive maintenance inspections: Find out how much maintenance manpower should be consumed by preventive maintenance inspections.
