Process Heating | Asset Management Journey

Asset Management Excellence Journey

The Fairburn Asset Management Excellence Programme is a structured step programme specifically designed to reduce breakdowns, grow productivity and transform your heating system performance.

For too many businesses, process heating systems are characterised by

  • Unexpected failures
  • Unplanned breakdowns
  • Unpredictable and uncontrolled repairs
  • Spiralling downtime costs and additional knock-on costs

And increasingly, as customers seek to reduce inventory costs, they are asking their key suppliers to demonstrate the systems and processes they use that ensure continuity of supply.

Our Asset Management Excellence Journey takes clients from a highly reactive (break – fix) method of operation through planned maintenance (fix before breaking) and proactive maintenance (fix and improve) to a position of excellence (improve and optimise) by drawing on 4 core principles:

  • Measurement
  • Monitoring
  • Predicting
  • Operating below failure point

In practice, we introduce a series of industry best practice enhancements, as defined by BS-EN 13306 (2010) starting with Condition-Based Maintenance, then Predictive Maintenance and finally Condition-Based Monitoring. In the final stage, monitoring of specific conditions enables us to predict the optimum timing for maintenance as shown in the diagram on the right

Operating in this manner can have a significant impact on the cost of service as shown in the diagram on the right
