High System Maintenance/Cleaning Costs

All industrial equipment requires maintenance.  The key question to ask is what is a reasonable frequency and what will that cost in lost production and manpower/resource costs.  Every system is different so there is no magical answer – and most plants learn through experience what their schedule should be. Having said that, a poorly run chemical treatment program coupled with system inattention is a formula for disaster.  Both need to be managed and run properly to keep plant costs to a minimum.
