Why is scale maintenance important?
Safety Related Maintenance
With regular measurement equipment & scale maintenance, technicians are more likely to spot potentially dangerous issues before an accident occurs. Spotting an issue prior to an accident will definitely save time & money, and could potentially save a life.
Preventative Maintenance Increases Reliability
With regularly scheduled scale inspections, the end user is aware of any potential issues that would cause the measurement equipment to malfunction. When scales are regularly inspected, it’s easier to correct small problems before they become major issues.
For example, upon inspection, you may learn that you need to clean your truck scale more frequently to reduce mud build-up. You have an opportunity to fix the issue, ensure things continue to run smoothly and even extend the life of your scale. Even something as simple as mud build-up could cause severe and irreparable damage to the bottom of your scale if left unnoticed.
A clean “bill of health” for your scales or measurement equipment can provide peace of mind, so you can focus on operations.
Minimize the Risk of Unscheduled Downtime
Weighing & measurement equipment that is properly maintained is far less likely to require major repair. Knowing the status of your equipment can help you to gauge when its time for replacement parts or repair. Then, you have the opportunity to schedule downtime & a budget to cover the associated costs, instead of experienceing unexpected costs & unplanned interruption to operations.
Keep Your Equipment Running Efficiently
When weighing & measurement equipment is functioning properly, your operations run smoothly. Work is less likely to be interrupted by a scale falling out of tolerance, or requiring (unscheduled) calibration, which saves you time and money.
When should I have scale & measurement equipment maintenance performed?
Depending on your environment, scheduled preventative maintenance could be necessary every month or once per year.
Industrial settings should perform scheduled maintenance every 1-3 months.
More stable settings whose scales aren’t under as much stress should have scheduled maintenance performed at least 1-2 times per year.
