In equipment, maintenance is the key to increased longevity and to avoid major problems.
In kilns and other equipment that we produce, we always recommend conducting a scheduled and regular maintenance.
These periods of scheduled maintenance are invariably in periods of vacation of our customers, ie in August and sometimes in December.
For us, work during the “normal” vacation period is not a problem, it has simply always been part of our job.
The amount invested in scheduled maintenance is certainly much less than the amount needed to solve a problem due to lack of maintenance.
Does your company usually do scheduled maintenance of equipment?
