Preventive Maintenance on Research Equipment 620219
A properly installed, firmly administered maintenance and calibration program will insure the maximum utilization of research equipment in a laboratory. Such a system has been successfully put into effect at the Chrysler Research Engine laboratories. Its major feature is that of preventive maintenance, that is, careful periodic evaluations of all instrumentation at a central location and a detailed control record for each piece of equipment. In addition to increasing operating efficiency, it has been found that preventive maintenance will also reduce overall maintenance costs.
