Preserving your engine with preventative maintenance

Aug 08 2023

Preventative maintenance is an essential aspect of maintaining the smooth operation of any organisation that relies on instrumentation and equipment to carry out its operations. CFR Engines Inc.’s world class service contract program allows organisations to ensure continued business operations while also maintaining a fixed annual budget. CFR’s approach and support for their global users will prevent breakdowns, reduce downtime, and extend the lifecycle of the CFR engine.

What are the key benefits of a formal preventative maintenance program?

Cost Savings: Regular maintenance of the CFR engine reduces the likelihood of costly repairs and replacement. Preventative maintenance helps to identify problems early on, so they can be resolved before they turn into major issues that require expensive repairs.

Increased Productivity: Regular preventative maintenance ensures that the CFR system is working efficiently and in accordance with the associated ASTM Standards, in return, production will not be interrupted by unexpected breakdowns or equipment failure.

Safety: Correctly maintained and upgraded equipment reduces the likelihood of accidents or injuries occurring in the workplace. Preventative maintenance ensures that safety features are working properly and that the CFR unit is in good condition to perform its intended functions.

Compliance: The CFR Service Contract Program ensures that your engine is maintained and compliant with the correct ASTM Standards. Preventative maintenance assures that your business is compliant with all regulations, avoiding any non-compliance issues that may arise from audits.

Improved Equipment Lifecycle: Preventative maintenance helps to extend the life of the CFR unit. Taking care of all equipment and systems before significant issues arise will extend the equipment’s life and ensure you are maximising your return on investment (ROI).

Scheduled Downtime: Continuous preventative maintenance allows organizations to plan for maintenance activities during scheduled downtime, minimising disruptions to regular operations.

How can CFR Engines Inc. support your operations with the inclusion of a CFR Service Contract Program?

Risk Assessment: An upfront risk analysis of your engine is performed to identify critical systems that require proactive maintenance or may be impacted by the obsolescence of Legacy parts. This evaluation helps prioritize preventive actions where they are most needed and prioritize the risk factors associated with Legacy components to ensure a smooth transition to the latest XCP® technology.

Preventive Maintenance Plan: Based on the operational needs and usage of your specific unit, CFR will develop a proactive maintenance plan that is tailored to your needs, including regular inspections, routine maintenance, and overhauling of the engine.

Reactive Response Plan: Alongside preventive measures, CFR has a well-structured reactive maintenance plan for addressing unexpected failures promptly.

Data-Driven Approach: Utilising data generated by your CFR engine can provide monthly analytics that can assist CFR with predicting and monitoring maintenance requirements. These analytics help to identify potential issues and optimise your maintenance strategies.

Your CFR engines represent significant investments and maintaining those investments starts with an effective preventative maintenance program. The CFR Service Contract Program will provide essential support to ensure crucial preventative maintenance is performed efficiently, reliably, and cost-effectively, while also supporting increased equipment lifespan, improved safety, and the assurance that total efficiency and productivity are being achieved with the latest CFR technology.
