How to Optimize Asphalt Plant Downtime part2

For most types of industrial equipment, whether it be an asphalt plant or any other heavy industrial process, a key measure of its effectiveness is its reliability factor. In a number of companies they even have a Reliability Engineer(s) or a Reliability Manager, who plans and facilitates steps they take to achieve near 100% reliability.
"Most people define reliability as equipment being able to operate when it is needed to operate; to start up and run effectively at full production rate," says Lennie Loesch, CEO at Stansteel. "A key strategy to increase reliability is to minimize unscheduled downtime, including component breakdowns and emergency shutdowns.  For asphalt plants it is not uncommon for some plants to have only 50-60% reliable, much lower that a reasonable goal of being 90% or greater."

Another important reason to properly and routinely maintain asphalt plants are weather constraints and restrictions.  For many plants, particularly in northern climates, there are  temperature restrictions on government-funded paving projects.  In addition rain and snow can cause plant shutdown and/or paving site closure.  Such uncontrollable factors which can cause project delays contribute to the crucial need for properly operating equipment. 
Manufacturers could easily give you a laundry list of items and these maintenance lists change quite a bit based on how the plant is equipped. Most manufacturers agree the top “must service” items that are the backbone of a plant are as follows.
