Just as you should be exercising and eating healthy for long-term health, preventative maintenance on equipment is also just as important for long-term health and longevity of a plant.

A scheduled maintenance program will keep equipment running the way it was designed to and save money in the long run. Good examples of preventive maintenance (or PM) are scheduled lubrication cycles, frequent inspections and cleaning.
