The primary goal of preventative maintenance is to avoid or mitigate the consequences of failure of equipment.
In the hotel industry this would be losing your beer system on a Saturday night with a full house, resulting in lack of sales and customer dissatisfaction. Preventative maintenance is the care and servicing by qualified personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection, and correction of incipient failures, either before they occur or before they develop into major defects.
Preventative maintenance follows planned guidelines or “checklists” to ensure all necessary tasks are completed to assist in preventing equipment breakdown. Lancer recommends a six-monthly schedule, as considerations such as weather are taken into account so maintenance is performed before and after the hot Australian summer.
Lancer’s “Preventative Maintenance Program”, which includes tests, measurements, adjustments, parts replacement, and cleaning, is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. Included in the program is the six-month CO2 system check to comply with AS5034.
