Maintenance and Reliability: Looking beyond processing efficiency to optimize operations

A. Bozick, Victaulic

When facility owners think about plant optimization, the emphasis often is on maximizing throughput and, in many cases, that means focusing on processing equipment. While production efficiency is essential to profitability, there are other contributors to optimized operations—including reliability, availability and sustainability—that apply to every facet of operations. Utility piping and fire safety systems, which are essential to safe and continuous operations, can have a considerable impact on plant uptime, illustrating just how critical they are to maintaining productivity. Scope of impact. Piping for utility and fire safety systems often makes up more than one-third of the total pipin
