Regularly and proactively scheduled inspections are critical for ensuring the longevity and peak performance of equipment and processes at sites. As we all know, unplanned equipment downtime can cause severe financial losses. Equipment failures, multiple calls to a service centre, degrading process efficiency – these are all potential outcomes from equipment that has not been regularly inspected (and, as a result, maintained).
The Outotec Equipment Inspection service provides clear data and expert recommendations that help to improve decision-making and help keep site operations running like clockwork.
What does an inspection include?
An Outotec Equipment Inspection comprises data analysis and preparation, on-site equipment evaluation, and a full inspection report with follow up as agreed. Many customers choose to include inspection services as part of a long-term maintenance agreement.
Faster and more convenient reporting with digital tools
Outotec technicians use a cloud-based mobile app to make the inspection and reporting process faster. This means customers get the results more quickly and in a clear, accessible format that’s easy to share with colleagues. The app guides technicians through the inspection process, and even allows them to capture thermal images to support more accurate decision-making.
Comments Charlie Romano, Maintenance Superintendent at KCGM, Kalgoorlie, Australia “It’s a useful report with a good overview. Outotec’s service is very professional”.
As soon as the inspection is complete, customers receive a preliminary report via email, ready for sharing with colleagues. A full report follows after our experts have performed an in-depth analysis of all the equipment data gathered during the inspection.
Explains one Production Metallurgist in Australia “The report looks good and is easy to follow. The summary table is particularly handy. Turnaround time from inspection to initial report is also impressive, so it’s a useful site tool for us”.
