The process industry is any industrial company that produces a constant supply of a particular product. A good example of this is the production of oil, as the same process is applied to the crude oil to produce its various components. This process is applied on a constant basis and only very rarely changes. Process systems therefore have to be incredibly reliable machines as the will be running for large periods of time and must not fail.
Most process industries prefer using preventative maintenance to ensure the longest running times possible, this means the detection of potential issues is of the highest priority. A wide range of different tools can be used to locate any potential problems from: thermal imaging cameras to multifunction testers.
When a shutdown is essential however the work must be completed as quickly and thoroughly as possible and to help achieve this the tools must be off the very highest standard.
one of the major parts of the process industry is the wide range of sensors that ensure that the product is of the highest quality and all of the process machines are operating at peak performance. In order to ensure correct operation all of the sensors should be regularly calibrated using the appropriate tools for the job.
