What Is A Plant Shutdown?

Scheduled plant shutdowns (often referred to as a plant overhaul) are an unavoidable part of running an industrial plant, no matter how efficient your operations may be.

The Benefits Of A Successful Plant Shutdown

Increase Operating Efficiency

A plant shutdown is an ideal time to perform equipment maintenance and inspections in keeping with the warranty requirements of the equipment. This will ensure that all equipment is running as efficiently as possible, increasing the operating efficiency of the plant.

Prevent Future Failures

Another benefit of a scheduled shutdown is that it allows for an inspection of the equipment’s internal components that cannot be carried out when the equipment is in use. This provides an opportunity to identify and repair any issues that could potentially cause an unplanned shutdown or worker injury. This will this reduce the chance of unexpected and costly equipment repairs.

Reduce Unplanned Downtime

Finally, although scheduled shutdowns are expensive in terms of lost productivity, they are designed to reduce future unplanned downtime. This is achieved by identifying and repairing problems with the equipment before they progress to causing an unexpected shutdown.

Reducing unplanned downtime is essential as a scheduled shutdown can be efficiently planned through initial equipment inspections, and by ensuring that the required technicians are onsite to reduce downtime. However, unplanned downtime can be much more costly as the technicians required to repair the malfunction may not be on site, causing a prolonged disruption to your business.
