Preventive Maintenance Techniques


5 hours

  Course Prerequisites:
Trades Safety: Getting Started (186001)
Basic Industrial Math (Block X21)
Practical Measurements (Block X22)

  What Students Learn:
How to implement a preventive maintenance (PM) program is just as important as the why and when of such a program. It doesn't pay to create a well thought out and scheduled PM program only to have the lubrication, inspection, or repair tasks performed improperly. The objective of this unit is to show you how to perform these tasks safely and properly. This will include showing you typical PM tasks as they are performed on common industrial equipment.

When a student completes this study unit, he and she will be able to:
  • Explain how to inspect and properly maintain a belt, chain, and gearbox power transmission system.
  • Discuss why proper alignment is necessary when operating a power transmission system.
  • List the steps needed to properly maintain an AC or DC motor.
  • Explain how to perform a start-up or bump test of a motor.
  • Describe how to perform PM tasks on pneumatic systems.
  • Describe how to maintain both floor and elevated conveyor systems.
  • Identify the types of elevators and vertical lifts in your plant and the proper PM procedures for this equipment.
  • Explain how to maintain liquid and vacuum pump systems.
  • Describe how to perform a basic alignment of in-line shafts.
  • List the proper PM procedures for electronic controllers and robot systems.
